    Judging from the recent spate of dubious posts, and the long winded replies and rebuttals to them, its going to be a long winter on Trapshooters.com for you guys.

    But there's some good news.

    For me.

    It's spring here in South Africa, and summer is just around the corner. And while many of you will be freezing your butts off and shoveling snow, I'll be wearing shorts and having to put on sunscreen.

    I know you will be enjoying the warm weather Tim but I also sure you wouldn't mind being back in the snow for a little bird hunting....

    Right now I have the best of both worlds - hunting quail in short sleeve T shirts. ( good numbers so far)

    When it gets bad I have a heated room in my barn with two reloaders, just bought a bunch of shot, so I can load and think about those warm spring days..
