    Colorado Scouting Report

    I had a day free yesterday and decided to take a drive and check out the WIA's. I made a pile of notes in my map apps and actually found quite a few birds considering I wasn't out walking around. Some notes: - Irrigated corn is probably not quite 50% out yet, but they were really getting...

    Colorado Stats so Far

    With all the good tech on the phone (namely the geopdf maps and Apple Health), and being kind of a stats geek anyway, I totaled up some stats so far this year for Colorado: Days Hunted = 8 Miles Walked = 59.3 Birds Harvested = 13 Properties/Fields Walked = 48 Properties/Fields that held birds =...

    Prairie Chicken!

    Was amazed to flush and harvest the first Prairie Chicken I've ever seen in the wild yesterday in Sedgwick Co. I'd actually made a comment last weekend when we were in SD that we should cross the river some time to try and get on some chickens. To be lucky enough to see or harvest one in CO...

    Springer Hunt?

    Hi all, transplant from the Colorado board here. I picked up a Springer WMA tag this year to be able to take my old retired Brit out for a relatively 'light' hunt. He can't hack the big CRP and Ag fields anymore, so this seemed like a good way to get him on a couple birds. Has anyone done...

    'Dusky' Report

    Spent 4 days up @ our spot in Routt with the old (deaf) man on his farewell tour. We thought last year was his farewell tour, but after having 30 teeth pulled due to massive gum disease, he's a new man, so back at it one more year. He only has his 4 canines and a couple molars left, which was a...

    Phillips/Sedgwick 11/30

    Well, good and bad today. Unlike jtaylor2's experience in Yuma with tight-holding birds, we had the complete opposite up north. On the bright side, we saw more pheasants today than I think I've ever seen in a single day in CO before. On the bad side, they were mostly busting wild WAY ahead of...

    Pivot Corner WIA's gone?

    Just doing my annual compare of WIA maps (yes - although I'm generally a technically advanced person, I still transfer handwritten notes from map-to-map - makes an interesting keepsake). Looks like there are no pivot corners at all on the books for 2011? I've only looked in Phillips and Yuma...
