    Roadside Survey

    Looks like the ice storm on top of the snow did a typical number on my area. It was bad for awhile, evidently too long.

    Decent report...

    I was talking to ND farmers this week. Sounds the same as the nutty guy said. Relatives claim the corn crop in the bootheel is going to be very good. Unless La Nina cuts loose it is gonna stay dry.

    Various observations....

    Great post BB. It's been a year for the memory bank. Nothing epic, but solid to very good bird numbers everywhere I hunted. The prairies are special, I miss the early morning drive doing 75 for miles down a 2 lane blacktop without meeting another car for an hour of driving. I enjoy hunting...

    Every trick in the book

    I see them in trees most everywhere except KS. Depends how cold it is. A sunny very cold morning, and I think they climb up to get out of the frigid layer next to the ground and in some early sun.

    Rain? has anybody seen anything like it?

    I'm 54, I remember roads disappearing that were there as long as anybody could remember. I remember flooded farmsteads 100 years old under 10 ft of water in the Dakotas. There was a cattail slough south of white lake that became a deep lake with ducks on it instead of pheasants. This seems...

    IOWA Reports 2017

    Finally a cool day to hunt on the opener. The dogs and all three of us lasted the whole day. Consensus in central and SE is tough hunting. There was no significant hatch. I looked at 25-30 birds between ours, other hunters, and the hotel. All were beautiful with long spurs and long tails...

    What's a crowd?

    Last post and answers got me to thinking. What is a crowd when hunting. Dove season opened the first here, I went before work to watch, I counted 14 guys in a 6 acre patch of mowed sunflowers. I knew two of them. If you knew what you were doing it was not terribly dangerous. I personally...

    ?What is "good" Pheasant hunting to you?

    With the bird counts being down, from not so great numbers to begin with, I'm doing some adjusting to fall plans all ready. A guy needs time to schedule time off and so on. The reason so many go to the Dakota's is for good bird hunting! I can travel a couple of hours here in MO and kill 1-2...

    Walked out on the deck Saturday morning and listened to bird on my side of the ridge hollering to another across the road. They must be busted up and starting. 5 weeks till season, they might be hatching by start of season, with as early as spring has started.
