    What trips do you have planned for this year

    I have been hunting NE Montana the past 10 days for Sharptails and Huns. A good population of both species exists and hunting was good.

    Mild Winter??

    In my neck of the woods - winter has been rather mild with warmer temps and lower snowfall. Could be setting up for a good carry over of birds. Any fellow pheasant hunters have different conditions to post? "Cackle and Color"
