how old?

WITH THIS ISSUE, as we’ve done several times in the past few years, we honor our seniors—those gray-muzzled veterans who know the ropes and can still put in a productive day afield, even if it’s at a more relaxed pace.

We asked M.J. Nelson to check into this, and here is M.J.’s reply: “Natalie Donnelly said she didn’t say anything about elbow dysplasia and I no longer have her interview notes.

The receiver has a black Cerakote finish that laughs at wet weather, and the True Timber Viper camo barrel is proof tested to 23,641 psi. fabarmusa.com 2 BETTER BALLISTICS If you shoot classic shotguns or are just into hitting birds with deadly payloads, Kent Bismuth does the job. This shell produces modern per formance with classic materials and is available in 20-and 12-gauge. With the addition of BB and…
