    Western Nebraska Report

    I returned to Denver Saturday night after 3 days hunting and scouting western Nebraska. Starting from scratch after not hunting this area since 2019, I started scouting/hunting as soon as I crossed the CO/NE line on Hwy 23 just past Venango. I was working toward Ogallala where I had 2 nights...

    Pay to Play rates in SD

    I've hunted in SD with several different groups through the years, public land, pay-to-play, and combinations. None were preserves. All were wild birds, but maybe with some supplemented. What is the current going rate for private land daily trespass/gun fee with and without a guide? Thanks, Tom

    Bird dog?

    It happened during a late-November pheasant hunting trip to Winner, SD with some other Denver Pheasants Forever folks. One of the guys who hunts with a small wirehair pointer had never seen my 4 yr old pointing lab Parker before. When Parker jumped out of the truck, my friend exclaimed "that's...

    An older friend of mine is an avid duck hunter (from a blind in a duck club). He is looking for a started or finished lab for his duck blind and home-no preference for color or sex. He lives in Denver, CO. Any ideas out there? Tom

    PairOfLabs is once more

    Cody was half of my PairOfLabs handle when I signed up for this forum some years ago and I posted pics of him at times. We had to put my 14.5 yr old buddy down in August and went through some tough times as we all do. My wife and I pretty quickly decided to start the searching process for...

    A friend and I took our dogs on a "blast and cast" near Meeker last week for grouse and trout. My lab Parker and I got our first ever grouse. My final score was one grouse, no trout, lots of miles walked and belly-boat finning. It was a great trip. Tom

    First Bird-New Cynergy Feather Composite 12G

    Near Otis, CO last Wednesday I scored my first rooster with my new Cynergy on the first flush of the day. I will admit to a second anchoring shot. The gun is a joy to carry at 6lbs 7oz with 26" barrels. I dropped the adj. comb down one notch to the bottom for better sight alignment and...
