    Thanks to all for the responses,

    I've really enjoyed going afield with a nice double, Arkie it's a (Baikal made) remington sp model. I've got a few really nice classic doubles but they aren't steel shot friendly (non toxic required for waterfowl hunting.)
    so I bought the remington a while back, I have been very pleased with it's performance. and thanks El Guero, I love to shoot it and it is rather photogenic.

    Glen, the Lab in the background is the main reason for wailing into the coots. She gets antsy when things get slow, so I would hammer a coot or two for her. over the years some outings developed into a "coot shoot" when Mallards or teal weren't in plentiful numbers. What I have found is Jerky is jerky, even when it's the slim coot breast-but it is definately an aquired taste.

    I didn't mean to hijack the thread, Since I'm new to smoking, and pipe smoking altogether, I started with the aromatic tobacco, a house blend cherry-vanilla from the tobacco barn, but I am intently reading what others like on this forum, and reading all the tips I can on pipe smoking as well.

    Thanks, Duckhunter1969

    These teal ducks are more traditional, but I was using my pipe while taking the pictures, so It's not included in the photo.

    Bow-Legged Bear?

    Deer Tongue?

    Anyone hunt Grouse? There's SG Grousemoor!

    There used to be a tobacco known as Elephant Butts for you African safari guys.

    Constipated Duck?

    Oh, wait... that last one? While definitely sounding like a C&D blend, it's actually a Jeff Beck song. :D

    I love smoking Lat and Oriental blends in the fall and colder months. So I am going to be smoking my open tins of GLP Chelsea Morning, Quiet Nights, Lagonda, and Charing Cross when I hit the woods in couple weeks.

    about the only game that tobacco might alert is that which walks on two legs and can hunt back--

    What about Boswells Hunters blend? I am smoking it now in one of their shotshell pipes. Never been hunting so I am not sure if it scares the ducks or not.

    Blackwoods Flake will forever be my goto hunting tobacco. I got my first deer on Saturday while enjoying a pipe on my friend's family land. I had my pipe in my mouth as I took the shot :)

    I would have to agree with soundlzrd I smoke hunters choice from boswells while at the hunting land (not just because it is called hunters choice) for some reason it just seems like an outdoorsy type of blend tasting and smelling of a nutty sweetness...pretty delicious!

    Not kidding about this, really. I wish a blender would come up with a pipe tobacco that smells like a freshly fired shotgun shell. Any hunter will know what I mean. There's just something about that smell that's so intoxicating to me.

    Nothing better than having a good bird dog go on point on a cool, crisp fall morning, shooting a grouse and opening the barrels to smell that wonderful burnt powder aroma. I will often take a spent shotshell out of my game vest and inhale heavily to recapture that moment. Sometimes I accidently snoot a feather up my nose, which ruins it all......lol
