      I needed this advice too! I'm new here as well. I've been wanting to
      learn how to hunt for a while. I'm a dog trainer and an animal rights
      activist so some of my friends are shocked. I want to take
      responsiblity for some of the food I eat since the food industry doesn't
      treat animals well and pumps them full of junk.

      Anyway, my boyfriend (ewe! weird word for a girl almost 40, but what's
      the other word? Ack, divorced life!) is an avid hunter and raises labs
      in Lexington, TN. I live in the Memphis area. He's spent all winter
      getting me out fitted with camo etc.. and now I need a gun!

      I like the remington 870 but I've never shot one. They seem all purpose
      though. Any ideas on what they're like?

      Sorry to ramble!

      Deb

        Regarding the recoil concerns of some of the guns that are being mentioned
        here on this list. There are some great recoil reducing products on the market
        today. My 11 yr old petite daughter shoots a Remington 870 20 gauge with no
        problem. We simply put a Sims Recoil pag on it for her. It reduced a
        tremendous amount of recoil. She also was started with a .22 which I think is a
        super gun for anyone to shoot. Lots of fun, with NO KICK at all. Those of you
        just starting out or want to improve your skills than a .22 is a great
        choice. Best advice is simply find a gun your comfortable with and shoot it. Have
        fun, and most of all practice safe shooting.

              Hi Deb and welcome....I deal with the same thing.
              I've been divorced for a few years now (I'm 43) and am
              now with the love of my life and hate saying
              "boyfriend". He's much more important than that to
              me. There doesn't seem to be anything else though.
              If I refer to him as my partner (which he is) or life
              partner (that too)I worry that people will think I'm
              gay. Sometimes I say my other half but nothing seems
              right.

              He's

              Jim has me shooting a 30-06 which I love but this
              coming year I'm going to hunt with a bow. He just
              bought me a Hoyt ZR200 MT Sport. We need to get a
              bale of straw or something and wait for it to stop
              raining so we can shoot it.

                Just wondering how many of us on the list are dog
                trainers? I don't bird hunt (yet) but used to do hunt
                tests with goldens, labs and an irish water spaniel.
                I've been away from it for a while but just adopted a
                standard poodle (I'm also a dog groomer) and am
                wanting to get back into obedience and hunt tests with
                him. Does anyone hunt with a dog?

                        I am not a trainer but I have trained one hunting dog. She is a
                        Wirehaired Pointing Griffon. I use her to hunt a variety of birds,
                        and waterfowl. I also use her to band woodcock in the spring.
                        I also ran her in two hunt tests which was part of the breeders
                        agreement when you purchase a dog from WPGCA. The hunt tests were
                        not a competition, just to test the dog against the breed standard
                        and judge their temperament, coat, and conformation. The tests are a
                        lot of fun, so much that my husband and I now help organize the two
                        tests our local chapter holds each year.
                        Good luck with your new dog.
