Are these on anyone else's bucket list? @yellowshells_redlegs scored this pair recently! Thinking it may be time to start seriously pursuing these guys next season! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #WingShooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #QuailHunting #MountainQuail #UplandLowlife 
@Regranned from @yellowshells_redlegs -  Two is all you get, which is fine because it's about as much bird beauty as I can handle. Turns out my barrel isn't bent after all, at least not today ☺

Happy Birthday to My Little Gal! My future quail hunting partner! I'm not one to brag... but this little one is beyond her years... so smart... so funny... headstrong... and a personality to boot! Truly blessed as a parent! We are gonna party like 2 year olds today! My Little Pony Party! Woohoo!

Some days... the birds school you! It's a reality of hunting. The game bag was a bit on the light side today! But not for lack of trying! We saw a few dove. No snipe. Took a long shot at a single dove and ended up missing. Just out of range. Or perhaps bad shooting? Maybe both. 😉 Had a great time with the pals @ohh_gee_ru708 and @key_air_uhh despite the lack of birds! Can't wait to get out again soon! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #UplandHunting #QuailHunting #WingShooting #DoveHunting #SnipeHunting #UplandTradition

Anyone chasing some birds in the uplands this weekend? I'm leaving the 37 at home this weekend in favor of the 870. Do you know what I am hunting this weekend? Anyone who can guess what two species I am hunting this weekend gets a free decal (if I told you what I am hunting this weekend you are disqualified from this little contest! 😉). First person to guess both species wins! Happy Hunting out there! *** @marshdoodle got the correct answer first! I am hunting both SNIPE & DOVE this weekend! *** #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #WingShooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #Remington870

@dag3 got into some devil birds earlier this season. I find that chukar hunters are some of the most dedicated and hardworking upland hunters! Who else is a crazy chukar hunter out there? #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #UplandHunting #ChukarHunting #WingShooting #UplandHunting 
@Regranned from @dag3 -  There should be 5 #chukars but I didn’t keep up my end of the bargain. @briellekennels @ruff_tough_kennels @berettaofficial @benelli_usa #braquefrancais @upland_jitsu @murdochs_ #birddog

Happy Veteran's Day! I am thankful for our Veterans both past and present and the sacrifices they have made for us all. Because of them, we are safe and free in this great country. 
I have a challenge for you all: Make it a point to thank a Veteran today! Your appreciation will mean a lot to these folks.

Chasing after these never gets old. @rebeti77 is having some great times out in the field in some beautiful country getting after some valley quail. #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #UplandHunting #QuailHunting #WingShooting #ValleyQuail #CaliforniaQuail

Doubles and Roosters. What's not to love? @cdh515 is having a great season! How's your season going? #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #pheasanthunting #uplandhunting

Quail Camp 2017 was a blast! Froze our butts at night. Created some new friendships. Wore out some boot leather in some beautiful country (100% Public Land). Got into some birds. Had some great shooting opportunities... missed more than I care to admit! These birds humble me every season! Looking forward to heading back out! Special thanks to @ohh_gee_ru708 and @key_air_uhh for enduring me and being open to instruction on the fly... our upland heritage and future is in good hands with you two! It was personally rewarding to be able to assist in getting you guys in front of your first valley quail! Truly honored. Congrats on your first birds!

Heading out to Quail Camp! Stopped by @bassprorancho to get my license and on my way! A little rainy and windy but should clear up by tomorrow... hopefully! Happy Hunting out there to everyone! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #NoDogNoProblem #QauilCamp2017 #QuailHunting #UplandHunting #Ithaca37
@ryanchatwin had the opportunity to take his old man's 37 out for the early season youth upland hunt... looks like he had a good day of hunting! Give that young man a "congrats" and a follow! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #Ithaca37 #valleyquail #californiaquail #uplandhunting #wingshooting #quailhunting

@Regrann from @ryanchatwin -  What's school?? 😜 fun shoot with @preston_larsen_17 @_dalton_van_
1941. 
In 1941, when this Ithaca Model 37 was machined and put together by master gunmakers at the Ithaca Gun Company, it was a different world. WWII was in full swing in Europe and eventually, by December 7th of 1941, the USA was attacked by Japan. War was declared on Japan on December 8th. I wonder who purchased this shotgun off the shelf around that time period. Was it purchased by a young soldier before he left for war with intentions of returning back and using it? Did he return after several tours in Europe and go pheasant hunting? Or did he make the ultimate sacrifice, giving his life, never to use this shotgun as his own? 
I wonder why old shotguns appeal to us upland hunters. Surely, the art and craft of such shotguns make them desirable to collect. But I think it's so much more than that. It's a connection to the past. A window to look back on. A doorway to walk back into yesterday. They are part of another time. Another world. And a connection to someone else.

I have had older guns than this 37. But I love the history that it probably witnessed in 1941. What is your oldest shotgun in your collection? What stories would it tell?

#tbt This old Ithaca Flues was the second double gun I owned. A couple more followed after it but I eventually settled on a pump Ithaca 37. There are some things about doubles that I love, like a quick follow up shot. But I like the simplicity and reliability of a pump... plus an extra shell is always nice for those coveys. I feel that a pump slows me down and forces me not to take sloppy follow up shots. Which is your go to shotgun platform and why do you prefer using it? Double? Single? Pump? Semi-Auto? #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting

#tbt The Valley Quail, also known as the California Quail, arguably has the most beautiful plumage of all upland game birds. They offer small targets, as they rise together in coveys, which confuse and startle predators and hunters... and it works! They will often flush at about 30 yards plus away from a shooter or run through the arid hills and valleys, making them a challenging quarry for even the most seasoned upland hunter. 
Out on BLM land, I shot this single male last season  after I busted up a midsized covey. Instead of chasing after the singles, which flew in all directions. I sat low and called for about 15 minutes. I saw him running across a hill at about 25 yards or so with a hen quail. I sat up and jogged towards them, hoping to get them to flush and boy did they! Just in different directions! I shot at the cockbird first and folded him as he flushed to the left. I took aim at the hen flying to the right and my Ithaca 37 barked out two more rounds as she started veering out of range. Miss and a miss.

@bigazadventures got it done this past weekend! He bagged this trophy Blue Grouse with his 410 in Arizona! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting
#Wingshooting #SootyGrouse #BlueGrouse #GrouseHunting

@Regrann from @bigazadventures -  Considered an Arizona trophy bird, I have been wanting to add the Blue Grouse to my bird vest for a while. Even tried hunting them a time or two with no luck. Turns out that while camping with my uncle, I casually mentioned that I would love to bag one. The very next morning while he was out scouting for an upcoming elk hunt, he found 4. I went back to the same spot that evening and found them not 60 yards from where he saw them. Armed with only a $70 pawn shop special single shot .410, I was able to get a shot off and seal the deal. So the lesson from this weekends trophy shot, it doesn't matter how nice your shotgun is or how good your dogs are, some times all it takes is knowing the right person and being at the right place at the right time. @azwanderings @azgfd @upland_jitsu #grouse #huntaz #birdhunter #trophybird #uplandlowlife - #regrann

Bottom Ejector. A nice little design on the Ithaca 37 that prevents debris or weather related conditions to enter and affect operation. This design also makes the Ithaca 37 a favorite for left-handed shooters who suffer from shells being expended across their face with other shotguns that are designed solely for right-handed shooters.

This #tbt goes way back! This was a turning point for me in my life when I started becoming more of a dedicated upland hunter. Circa 2004 (?). Check out that old Hopkins & Allen! Choked full/full, 30 inch damascus twist barrels and loaded with 2.5 inch black powder shells. Headed out to a preserve and learned a lot that day! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting

Many hunters use # 7-1/2 or even # 8 shot for quail. Over the course of hunting wild western quail a couple of decades, I have learned that using # 6's throughout the entire season do a better job of folding and putting down these hardy birds. As a hunter who does not have the convenience of using a dog, I want to be sure I limit cripples as much as possible. I don't want one running into the crags of boulders or heavy brush where I cannot get to it. People ask if there is much meat damage... I have yet to experience that. #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting

The wear and tear on a true field gun... Sometimes I wonder what stories this old Ithaca 37 (1941) would tell me if it could. Prepping this old gal for quail season. Ready to create some new stories and memories this fall! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting

Everyone is just waiting around now for the next season. Not too much longer now! We will be back to nights of anticipation in the air huddled around fires. Opening day is just months away. Summer is the only thing between us! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting #wingshooting #uplandhunting #quailhunting #quail #uplandobsession #uplandlowlife #projectupland #uplandelite #findyourwild #orvishunting #filsonlife #filson1897 #hunt_ca #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #PublicLandsProud

Many thanks to @wsisports and @hunt_birdz for this nifty made in the USA Hypertech Bamboo shirt! It came in handy today during my wildlife corridor project while setting up cameras today. Super comfortable and kept me cool while hiking out. Check them out! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting #wsisportswear #huntbirdz #WildlifeManagement #UrbanWildlife #wildlifebiology #wildlifecorridor #orangecounty #CaliforniaWildlife
Urban Dove. Good to see successful nesting going on around town! Seems this little area under the overhang of my roof gets a pair every season.

New project. Setting up trail cameras to study urban wildlife around this beautiful SoCal wilderness for a wildlife corridor project. Heard a few quail out here! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting #WildlifeManagement #EnvironmentalScience #wildlifebiology #science #wildlifecorridor #orangecounty #quail #quailforever #OCParks  #UrbanWildlife
Happy Earth Day! Thank a hunter today! Hunters are one the biggest contributors to preserving wild and gorgeous places like these! #HappyEarthDay #EarthDay #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting #nature #hunting #hunt_ca #keepitpublic #publiclandowner #publiclandsproud
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave! He is RISEN! Happy Easter, everyone! 
Check out this gorgeous country! I stopped here and just admired the beauty that God created. Last time I was here, I had just found out my wife was pregnant! I reflected on all that has come since then and all that has changed. I have a wonderful and supportive wife who I am very proud of who makes positive impacts in people's lives. I have a very healthy and spunky daughter running around who surprises me and humbles me with her love and generosity. I have since then had opportunities to pursue my passions and share my experiences with others. Now I get to serve and give back and that has made a wonderfully unexpected impact in my life! All that and I get to hunt in beautiful places like this! God is good!
