    SD atlas- paper copy available?

    The GPS tracking still works as well.

    Which type of public access lands do you target?

    I too killed plenty of birds all on public in 2019. To me the advice of being willing to move is very important. If I hunt a couple spots that look really good and don’t see much, I’m moving 20-30 miles. Last year, the first couple places we hunted a friend and I killed 4 birds and kept...

    Which type of public access lands do you target?

    There are a few tracts of school land in SD that hold birds, but they are few and far between. One of the best hunts I have had was on school land in the snow. I don't go out of my way to go look at school land, but I do keep an eye on them as I drive by. You never know.

    New strap vest

    Final Rise has a newish version of their vest out. It is a little cheaper than their main Summit version. I have the Summit and Love it. I use it for Quail, Pheasant, Dove, Crow, and Turkey hunting. Very versatile.

    Hunting motivation

    Exactly, a lot of times there is only a strip of cover in a ditch (where legal) or a drainage in the middle of a corn field. There isn't much of a difference to me and If the birds are there, you might as well hunt it.

    Let's talk spring turkey hunting

    Head to NW Oklahoma opening weekend, setup on a small food plot and wait for a Tom to come beat up my Jake decoy. One bird limit in Oklahoma this year, so will probably be a short turkey season.

    South Dakota CREP

    I think that is last years update. I looked at my maps from last year and I have several marked that show to be "added" and the ones that are "deleted" are not shown. I'll be keeping an eye on it either way for new updates.

    Bird Dog Bunkhouse 2022

    I would highly recommend Bobby's house. Stayed there the first couple years I hunted in SD and had a great time. I learned a lot about pheasant hunting listening to everyone and asking Bobby questions. Still talk to a couple of the guys that stayed there.

    Grouse/Woodcock vs Pheasants

    I would go back to SD. The best advice for SD is to be willing to change areas. Bird numbers may not be great in one area, but 50-100 miles away they may be great. Plenty of birds on public, but they are smart. When I go by myself I expect to have an opportunity at a limit every day and when...

    Home made video recommendations

    Another good one is Eric Forrester. Usually has hunts in Montana, Kansas, South Dakota and some state with chukar. I think he hunts all public land.

    Home made video recommendations

    I’m always really impressed with Klaus, really enjoy his videos. Another good one is TRPLC COOP. Runs multiple GSP’s and has really good dog work.

    January Solo Hunt

    I believe your math is incorrect. The cost per bird is $3 and the cost of a lifetime of memories is the rest.

    Late Season Roosters Tactics

    Similar story from South Dakota, but in the morning. A friend and I pulled up to a large public area that has a bean field on the south side where 100-150 birds were feeding. I parked 3-400 yards from the field and we sat and watched all the birds feeding there from 9:15 until legal shooting...

    The BEST upland hunting boot..?

    Which model of Crispi boots? I have a pair of Kennetrek Mountain Extremes that are going on 4 years old and are still in really good shape. I have put hundreds of miles on these boots and they should last several hundred more, I haven't even had to replace the laces yet.

    Coldest hunt you've been on

    -16 out in the Oklahoma Panhandle. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be once we starting walking, there wasn't any wind and the sun was shining. Booted the dog and put a vest on him and he was good to go.
