    1/2 right. She was an English pointer/English setter cross. Turn out to be a woodcock terror. Rock solid too the point that anything bigger than the .410 was overkill. Normally don't shoot rabbits when woodcock hunting but she pointed everything and was so dead steady that shooting the pointed rabbit was of no concern.
    Lost her too early at 10 she developed breast cancer.

    One pellet will knock down a woodcock. They're pretty fragile birds. Indeed the one piece of advice I'd give to the woodcock newbie would be to follow up your shots even if unsure, because if you hit that bird, it's down.

    I use 3/4 oz. 7.5. But I have shot lots of woodcock with #6 when I run into them pheasant hunting. The main worry isn't the size of the hole but the number of holes in that little piece of meat!

    Seen a robin and a red winged blackbird this morning as well.
    Not that I don't believe you but they are not here until the dogs say so. Had Nova out for a run today marked the first bird. Missed a nice shot of him belly crawling to a point but a least marked where it was.

    Lone bird but expect more as they pass through during the next week or so.

    Went for a walk this am. Put up 3. Only one solid point. Others she got too close. Wish I would've backed up a bit and got her full body. I would've walked right by this one within 5 feet if she didn't go on point.
