Evan : Is there much upland hunting in the Illinois area ?
Unfortunately the prospects for hunting in NE Illinois look pretty bleak. In fact I was just talking to a friend of mine at work today about it. He was telling me that a number of counties in NE Illinois are closed to hunting because of population density, and he has heard that additional counties (including the one I live in - Will County) are going to be added to the list soon. He has been going up to Wisconsin somewhere to hunt, in spite of having to pay relatively high nonresident fees. I have been out of the hunting scene for 30 years, when I hunted with some high school friends in North Central Illinois. My oldest son, who is 11, is keen on hunting, and I have been looking forward to taking him and getting involved myself again. Unfortunately I am going to school now plus working full time, so time will not be available until I graduate in March 2005. Until then I will have to be satisfied with shooting targets and and the occasional backyard varmit with my crossbow.

They don't call them "Springers" for nothing. They have the will and determination of dogs 3 times their size.
Those are some nice pics of Sally and the crew.
I can just see the little one now jumping back and forth over Sally's back and yipping away as they cross the field just like in that Disney movie Oliver's Company.

You aren't far from it ... the little guy Spike chases Sally for a while before he settles into a walk ... I will post some pic's of him later .
Nice pooch! looks full of loyalty and heart. Looks like a winner to me!

Interesting, I have not heard of any difficulties with the Peerless. I have one that has had several 1,000 shells through it on skeet fields without a problem.
I think the latest Rem. 332 O/U shares quite a few of the internal parts of the older Peerless, most noticeable external parts it doesn't share are the false side plates.
