I always pictured shotgun sports/hunting as one of those "American Sportsman" shows depicted. My favorite episodes were bird hunting from all over the states. I got hooked on the idea long before I was old enough to shoot. Curt Gowdy, oh my. I finally got to bird hunt as much as I wanted when I moved from San Diego to La Grande. Before that it was dove hunting near Calexico, duck hunting and quail hunting near the Salton Sea. Very much fun but no pheasant/hun/grouse/chukar/goose. I was fortunate that my military duty was all stateside. Some great trap and skeet ranges and very low cost. Ha, my dad played golf. I used to caddy for him. Took it up in my early 20s. Sick. Golf teaches one to cuss even more that being a sailor does.
