Like many of you, I am much better at just doing stuﬀ than getting ready for it. I guess it's all about being prepared, and I was never the sharpest Boy Scout in the troop, or something like that.
But some things are too important to not prepare for. Depending on what and where you hunt with your scattergun, your season is either coming up fast, or is already here. September is often the last call for getting shotguns and other paraphernalia ready, so let's talk about what you need to do to get out there and sling some lead or steel.
First, pull those scatterguns out of the gun safe and look 'em over. I'm sure that you would never put a shotgun away at the end of the season without a thorough cleaning, but if somehow this did happen, now is the time to rectify it.
Most of the time, the only prep our guns need is some old-fashioned cleaning. Pump guns and semiautos need a little more TLC when it comes to this, but dont neglect the actions on your side-by-side and over-and-under shotguns just because theyre easier to clean. Read the rest of shotgun ready.
Three days without a single response? Pathetic. Better give it up.
