I smell Hasenpfeffer, Elmer's favorite dish.

Re: Eating Lead

This would not be much different than eating quail or other small game birds taken with a shotgun. Just chew carefully!


Both boys are wearing boots in good condition, their clothes are relatively new and with no patches visible, and there is paint on the house in the background. Things are turning around at this point.

Like old times

I used to be able to hunt after school where I grew up. Now if someone were to see you walking the treeline with a gun and a dog they'd call the cops.

Eating Lead

Hunting wabbits with a shotgun? Would not want to eat that rabbit, you would be picking shot out of it all through the meal.

Winchester's Finest

I still own my father's Mode 12. 20 Gauge Full Bore.
Dad took very good care of it and I do as well.
Hunting in the '30s and '40s was easy. There was an
abundance of land where you could hunt and game as well.
I am 90 years old now. Too old for hunting.

Supper's on the table

Small game season in Pennsylvania was a big deal when I grew up. Put a lot of meat on the table when the coal mines were slow. Never had a Model 12. Mossberg 20 gauge bolt. It was like carrying around a 6x6 beam. Heavy.

What the Fudd?

I could have sworn the sign said Duck Season.


Looks like a Model 12. Those are nice shotguns.
