    Not many people reporting here anymore :-(

    I just got back from southeast ND today. There were three of us in our group. We hunted five days, walking about 9 miles a day on Plots and some private land. We saw fewer birds than last year in the same general area. The public land, Plots was sparse hunting. Most of the Plots were...

    I stopped at a sporting goods store outside of Minong, WI and saw some 16ga. Prairie Storm. I asked for the price and the lady clerk said with a straight face $56.00 a box. I politely asked if she was joking and she said no. It was the real price. Not for me thank you very much. I did find...

    How About The Weirdest, Strangest Thing you've Seen/Experienced While Hunting?

    While hunting in SD we were pushing through a cattail patch and heard something of a struggle. As we approached we saw a large buck whose antlers were stuck in some old fencing. The buck was quite lively and we could not get close enough to do anything to help. I wonder if that buck ever made...

    Favorite O/U 16 gauge?

    I had a Marlin Model 90 16 gauge and it was a pleasure to carry. I never did get used to an over/under. So I now have a Remington 1100 16 gauge. The semiauto fits my shooting style much better. I sold off the Marlin about five years ago. Just a little seller's remorse. Yeah maybe I should...

    ND 2020 PLOTS guide published

    I have seen at least 10 Plots areas dropped in the last ten years and no new ones to replace them. Now I put on way more miles per day driving than I used to do before the changes. It still is much better than SD.

    Just found the site

    This looks like the place to be for pheasant and bird hunting. My favorite pastimes are pheasant hunting and getting ready for pheasant hunting. I am on my third hunting dog, a German Wirehair Pointer. She is the best of the bunch. At three years old she is in her prime. I am fortunate...
