    Walk in Areas

    This is what I was told by a local. Is he a liar? I don't have a clue what the gain would be to lie about something like this. I know I am not lying about being given this info. Either way I will pay the fee for a license and a stamp. Just thought I would pass it along to the group. It...

    Walk in Areas

    Since the habitat stamp is being discussed.... I have some information obtained from a local on my last trip late Oct. He was told by the local warden that stamp monies in this area were being used for private land projects.. I thought this money was for habitat in general and funds being...

    REAL South Dakota 2021 review.

    Just returned from a week in SD. Been replaying the week in my head and what we could of done better. Lack of cover, low bird numbers, miles walked and the rain & wind really put a damper on the week. We covered a 50-60 mile radius from the house. Its going to be a tough year even after the...

    REAL South Dakota 2021 review.

    Good or bad bird numbers we always make our annual trips to South Dakota. The trip is all about the bird experience, sunsets and most importantly the dog work. I spend all summer at home in Wisconsin training pups for not only grouse at home but for the experience of chasing SD roosters...

    2021 RINGNECK OUTLOOK

    I would agree. Between the drought and haying ditches, which was going on pretty heavily it will have some sort of impact.

    2021 RINGNECK OUTLOOK

    Just returned home from 3 days in South Dakota prepping the house for fall as usual. Went out looking for birds mornings & evenings. Didn't see a large volume of pheasants in any areas I covered. But the corn is up and the birds I did see were using the corn for cover as usual. Bulk of what...

    Labor day trip.......

    Just returned home to WI from spending the Labor day weekend in SD. Spent a good amount of time running my own survey over the 3 days I was on the ground. Numbers are looking very good from what I seen. Birds out running around morning, noon, and night. Seen multiple broods with double digit...

    Just returned from South Dakota

    Just spend the 4th in SD getting the house up and running. What a difference a year makes when you look at the crops this year. It didn't look like there was a field that didn't get planted this year. Seems to be heavy to corn from what I seen in our area. Last year with the flooding I would...

    With a heavy heart.........

    It's with disbelief and a heavy heart and a tear in my eye that I sit here and let everyone know we lost a great man and friend in the SD pheasant habitat/hunting world. Jim Aune passed away late last night. I was fortunate enough to be present and spend the 4th of July with a man I consider a...

    Last trip of the season.....

    Just returned home from 10 days over xmas/new years. The hunting was much better this trip than out Thanksgiving trip. We were able to get into multiple groups of birds over the course of 10 days of hunting. Our best day on public ground we seen 250+ birds, which was after the snow/wind event...

    Just starting trip.....

    Just got to the house last night. Today is day one of a nine day hunt. Will post some updates as the week goes along. One thing I have noticed as commented by many. Still a ton of corn standing for this time of year.

    Labor Day SD

    A little late but was out last weekend to open up the house and prep for upcoming season. Conditions were about what I expected with what I have been hearing. Crops depending on the area you are in look good or not so good. Bird numbers were about a 1/3 of what I normally see during this trip...

    Xmas Hunt 2016.....

    24 hours away from heading back out for one more week in SD. Been a little over four weeks since returning home from the last trip, seems like four months when you have the itch to hunt pheasants. Would expect to be into birds just like the last trip but they will obviously be more educated...

    Thanksgiving

    One week to go....

    One week from today heading out for nine days of torture, just kidding, consider SD a little piece of heaven that never gets old. Been organizing and packing for the trip. It's funny how the older dogs know where we are going a week before we load up. There's a buzz around the house and the...
