John fills both barrels. While pheasants seemed to flush in one's and two's, we lucked into several groups of chukars.
John's poor hands about froze off, but he stuck with it.
Gracie makes another retrieve. At Kessler, pointers point the birds while Labs are then sent in to flush the birds.
Colorado Grand Slam winner, John Stanley, is ready for action. On this afternoon John took 16 birds and hardly missed a shot.
John draws down on a rapidly climbing bird after a perfect point by C.C.
Kessler's house guns are stylish Zoli 20-gauges perfect for fast-breaking pheasants and chukars.
The heart from John's elk (served on French baguette with a duck pate) was the highlight of this lovely appetizer created by Leonard McNab, Kessler Canyon Ranches 5-star chef.
In addition to winning an elk hunt, a bird hunt, shooting lessons from an Olympic medalist, John was able to enjoy a full massage in Kessler Canyon's lovely spa. He was so relaxed when he came out, we practically had to pour him into his dinner chair.
John takes a few minutes to relax by the fire after a long day of fishing and bird hunting all part of his Colorado Grand Slam Adventure. To see how you can enter to win our next Grand Slam Adventure go to:
