Had a brilliant 2 days with Roseanne and Chad, it's great to see more Husband & Wife teams out there enjoying both field Hunting and Sporting Clays. Please note the way Roseanne is holding her gun, it's called the "T" and is the correct and elegant way to carry an over and under in the field, it can also be accompanied by the shout of "GET ORF MY LAND!!!!" #KeithCoyle #GreenAcresSportsmansClub #ExpertShootingTuitionInIllinois
