9th to the 13th going to take four days and explore Jackson and Hillsdale co's. Will be on public land. First time I have explored theses areas. haven't shot a wild MI pheasant in a long long long time hope to at least see some hens. Last year drove from the Benton Harbor area all the way over to cass city in the thumb for a day never saw a thing.
im in pretty good shape plan on pounding the ground hard for two days and if I'm not satisfied I will head up to the thumb or maybe try Saginaw or Gratiot counties havn't been there yet either. years ago used to get a few birds around berrien and van buren counties but gave it up around here in the early 2000's started doing south Dakota trips Iowa and Nebraska. a few years back gave that up and started just going north for grouse and woodcock but the last two years I have wanted to get a wild pheasant or at least find some.
