    Unhappy with my home state (MN) hunters.

    Doesn't apply to those who charge fees to hunt. Also the law is grey on who is responsible for those who get hurt entering land without landowner permission to retrieve "wounded" animals. Since the landowner never gave permission to enter but the state took that right from the landowner they...

    Unhappy with my home state (MN) hunters.

    I don't see a lot of MN hunters on this side of the state but ones I did weren't careful as they shot at pheasants from a field across a busy highway...didn't appreciate that. I have had one of the worst years ever for trespassers. Because deer numbers are lower than average they are taking...

    What's up with that?

    Went for a drive down my usual roads on opening morning and saw a couple of groups of hunters. I drive those roads quite often and rarely see a bird but today they were everywhere. Just that little bit of hunter pressure and they came out from every corner I guess. nice to see them as I was...

    Broods

    Went out again last night just to drive up and down the road on a quick trip to see if anything was about. Saw a clutch in my newly seeded 15 acre habitat project. ( wheat grasses.switch,alfalfa,sunflowers and cover crop barley. Hope it turns out well. saw a hen at the edge of the wheat field...

    Broods

    Yes great conditions ...could use a little rain now. Grasshoppers are thick. Lots of butterflies and flys. Ornery biting flies. I have seen a couple roosters with hens still and some hens alone. Should be some good winter cover as it seems the farmers aren’t cutting everything. Tons of hay...

    Broods

    I have been going to the farm and watching last couple of weeks with very little seen as far as broods go. Tonight something changed, in just 1/8 mile of road I had 4 broods cross. I like that when they go from my grass to the grain field across the road as I get a perfect count that way. 1...

    Moisture coming….

    What a slap in the face.....went to the farm after I had been snowed in for 4 days and the area (20) acres I am going to burn down and reseed with high quality seed mix for pheasant habitat was completely blown clear of any snow whatsoever and it's a low flat area......well that's a foot up the...

    Moisture coming….

    Had 2 roosters and 3 hens that would walk by my house along highway ditch before storm. Lost one rooster day before storm by a hot rodding teenager. Been looking for them the past 2days and just now saw the rooster but no signs of hens. Hope they show up soon.

    Pheasants at night

    I have several roosting in my Russian Olive trees some days.....occasionally they will be in elms. Rare times I have had them in a pine as well. Seems damp morning/evenings they tend to more often but some days with even hot dry weather they perch there as well. I don’t have any coyotes but some...

    ND mixed reviews

    Funny stuff.....yeah my first thought was (did they turn that old "no Hunting" sign around and bend it down to get into that great cover?. But I know no one would post a pic of that if it wasn't on the up and up. just trying to find humor in every situation I think.

    Pheasant coloration

    Drove down the road by my place yesterday at the right time as I caught 3 roosters by surprise. They ducked down best they could in shallow grass/weeds instead of taking to flight or running off as they usually do. I went by fast enough so as to not push them off. On the return trip I drove...

    How dry is western North Dakota?

    farmers here are cutting hay as fast as possible to save what little there is from burning up. The fire department goes out at least 3 times a day for a prairie fire. CRP will be getting hit hard with emergency haying.......Hens walking with roosters in the fields at night without a brood in sight.

    How dry is western North Dakota?

    I haven't heard how they are. I live in SW so am familiar with this part of the state and I don't travel. I hope better than we are. Hope we aren't headed for another dirty 30's

    How dry is western North Dakota?

    A lot of haying being done here to save what they can. It looks like only 1/3-1/2 of normal production....Need some rain soon or it's toast for the crops. Its pretty yellow/brown looking far SW corner

    CRP opened for haying.

    I saw a small broad yesterday.....hope there were more in the grass I didn't see otherwise a tiny one.

    How dry is western North Dakota?

    One of the driest I have ever seen. Dust from kids shoes playing outside looks like plaster when they come in. Went to farm and have had seeds planted for a month and they are just there waiting to be watered. You can kick dust clouds up just by walking the field....Had to wear coat and face...
