Got the dogs out today on some quail, my brother shot a limit and I couldn't hit a barn but still managed three despite my terrible performance. If the quail are any indicator in the valley the hatch was better than last year. Hopefully the same is true for the pheasants.
Conditions were excellent this spring. My friend showed me a pic of a rooster he saw yesterday at the duck club sitting on a fence, lol. He saw thirty roosters yesterday. He said he can't remember the last time he has seen so many pheasants
