Heard an optimistic report from someone last weekend in central part of the state in regards to bird numbers being seen. Fingers crossed for good weather for hatching success.

Guestimate....How many hens did you see with each rooster?
It has varied, but I’ve seen lots of each…lots. Probably 3 or 4 hens to roosters, but you can see roosters from a long ways away, so brilliant right now. What nature wants, focus on them, not noticing the hens. Drove 20 miles of gravel around 7:30 am today, saw 50-75 easy, maybe more, wasn’t counting. In my hunting haunts, so there’s habitat. All the locals are commenting that birds are all over…easy winter…but dry!!!!!!
