I have been playing with ideas for new ammo in the Ithaca 37. By 2019, California is adopting a Statewide ban on all lead ammo when hunting or taking game. California has already implemented this lead free transition on much of the legal taking of many species already, however, some species like quail, have until 2019 to comply. Steel shot is not a great option for my old vintage Ithaca, so I am looking to try out some other options like Bismuth. It is pricey, but is very similar to lead and seems to be vintage barrel-friendly. My goal is to keep this old gun in the field for as long as possible. Has your State implemented any bans on lead shot ammo for upland hunting? How have you managed and what ammo have you used in your old vintage guns? #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #Ithaca37 #IthacaShotgun #KentAmmo #Bismuth #QuailHunting #Wingshooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #CaliforniaQuail #ValleyQuail #GambelsQuail #MountainQuail #UplandLowlife #Filson1897 #FilsonLife #OrvisHunting #FindYourWild #PublicLandsProud #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #QuailForever

This is how it all started for many of us. No gun. Not even licensed yet. But determined to keep up and put in the work. The seed was planted for many of us this way. Keep our heritage and traditions alive by taking someone who is new to hunting out with you! I can guarantee you there are a ton of people out there who want to hunt... they just need a mentor or helping hand. 
Regrann from @bigazadventures -  Probably my favorite picture from this last bird season. He didn’t shoot the bird, but he’s old enough to start tagging along and to join in on the adventure. #arizonaupland #desertbirds #uplandjitsu #frenchbrittany #projectupland #quail #backcountryupland #huntbirdz #azuplandhunting #arizonawanderings #franchi #fetchingdeathers #franchifeelsright #eatwhatyoukill #wildgame #mearnsquail

Earlier this past season, we ran across a field that was littered with empty shotgun hulls and boxes that were used for target practice. There was no way to describe the mess that was made, other than just plain gross. This was clearly not an "aw shucks... I didn't see where that empty hull went" scenario. This was a blatantly disrespectful act against our public lands (that we share) and prime quail habitat. It took two full vests to haul this stuff out. These are our public lands. If you use it, take care of it. If you see a mess someone else left behind... as a steward of these lands, pick it up and know you are appreciated! Special thanks to @soypepinoriick and @key_air_uhh for taking the time to stop their hunt early to help me pick up after these slobs! You are both great examples of the future of conservationists and advocates for our Public Lands! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #PublicLandsProud #PublicLandHunting #BackCountryHuntersandAnglers #BHA #QuailForever #Pheasantsforever #RuffedGrouseSociety #Filson1897 #FindYourWild #UplandTradition

There is nothing like ending your season with some Mearn's and Scaled Quail in hand! Just ask @bigazadventures and friend @jonprawitt! I think I'm gonna have to head out that with you this next season for these birds, bud!

@Regranned from @bigazadventures -  Last quail of the season! @jonprawitt  owning this #mearnsquail. Our first #scaledquail. Great day, long day, lots of miles. A blast of a time!

Sticky & Pokey. That's the way things are in the High Desert Uplands of the South/West. It's harsh out here. Be prepared. Enter at your own risk. The rewards?

The Bird Hunters... Friendships can be made anywhere. But the most special of those bonds are made in the Uplands. See the full vid here: https://youtu.be/FB_pwP7j-Lo

Do you small game hunt? Once bird season ends, small game hunting offers upland hunters more time in the field. For instance, jackrabbits can be hunted year long with no bag-limits in California! Check your local regulations to see what small game hunting opportunities await you. With careful planning, you may be able to hunt year long with your shotgun! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #SmallGameHunting #UplandHunting #JackRabbit #CottonTail  #RabbitHunting #ithaca37 #IthacaShotgun #Filson1897 #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic

Well. That's a wrap! The season is over for us. We didn't do too shabby today! 100% Public Land! Heading home, I looked back at all the great moments of this season. Made some awesome memories and made some unsuspected friendships that will both last a lifetime! My buddy @soypepinoriick actually downed the majority of the birds in this photo! He was nice of enough to let me sneak in my single rooster Valley Quail in this photo op! It was great seeing him learn the ways of the upland throughout the season and end it with great moments such as taking his first double and taking home a respectably hefty game bag! That's what these days out in the uplands were made for! Until next season! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #QuailHunting #Wingshooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #MountainQuail  #ValleyQuail #GambelsQuail #PublicLandsProud #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #QuailForever #Filson1897

Just released a revised version of my old post "A Case for the Masked Bobwhite Quail". Ever hear of the Masked Bobwhite Quail? It is the only quail in the USA that is critically endangered! The tale of the Masked Bobwhite is a cautionary tale and we should all be concerned and we should all care if this rare and fascinating bird disappears for good.

There are just 8 days left of the season for us here in California. This season has been a memorable one! Are you guys still out hunting or have you packed your gear away? I am still eager to get after some wild quail myself before the long wait until next season... #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #QuailHunting #Wingshooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #MountainQuail  #ValleyQuail #GambelsQuail #PublicLandsProud #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #QuailForever #Filson1897

#tbt Running and Gunning for quail! If you have ever wondered what it is like hunting western quail... this may give you an idea what is in store! Bumped a covey and connected with a hen and went after the singles. Excuse the heavy breathing! Just ran up a hill chasing after these guys! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #Ithaca37 #IthacaShotgun #QuailHunting #Wingshooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #MountainQuail #UplandLowlife #ValleyQuail #GambelsQuail #PublicLandsProud #PublicLandOwner #KeepItPublic #QuailForever #Filson1897 #HighCountryQuail #HighDesert

My buddy said that I should caption this picture as "Old School/New School". I think he is trying to say I am old! And slow.... I took time to reflect on this past year and anticipate the new year to come. Out with the old and in with the new... but never forget where you came from or the past that moulded you who you are today. That was stuck in my head all day. Speaking of which, I spent the day with my good friend, @soypepinoriick, out exploring some new areas I always wanted to hunt. Lots of quail sign but no quail for us today, but that's how it goes sometimes! The reality of hunting.

Weary and educated birds are flushing further and are getting hung up in the thick stuff. This is late season upland hunting. Are you still hitting the hills for birds or have you hung up your vest for the season? #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting #Ithaca37 #IthacaShotgun #QuailHunting #Wingshooting #UplandHunting #UplandTradition #ValleyQuail #GambelsQuail #PublicLandsProud #QuailForever

Who's getting after some birds this weekend? What species? Give @r_jones05 a follow!

Did you get a chance to hunt the uplands this holiday weekend? @philthyxphil got into some Scaled Quail coveys! Perfect ice chest shot!

@Regranned from @philthyxphil -  86 degrees after Thanksgiving. Good bird weather, better bird work!
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!

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.

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 A few years ago I hunted out in the Palo Verde Valley near Blythe. Heard a covey nervously pipping as I approached this tall grass. Lefever Nitro in hand.... I waited for the covey to flush. I was not disappointed.

Want to get into birds? Ton of Gambel's Quail out there near the river and washes. Lots of BLM land. Worth checking out! Wear out some boot leather and you will find coveys. The general quail season starts in 3 weeks. Where are you headed? #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting

#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

A #StraightUpland #FaceFullofFeathers #friday -- when your #grouse is nearly as big as your #HuntingDog !
#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. 
Oct 21st can't get here sooner. #UplandJitsu  #TheArtOfUplandHunting #Ithaca37 #IthacaShotgun #QuailHunting #Wingshooting #valleyquail #californiaquail #hunt_ca #uplandlowlife #uplandtradition #straightupland #ultimateupland #projectupland #uplandobsession #marshdoodle #quailforever #pheasantsforever #filson #filson1897 #orvis #orvishunting #findyourwild

@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
