Slow on this forum, but there were some birds in the field. Had a good opener with enough contact to make the dogs happy. One rooster took the magic pellet, good time and great weather.

Gonna head out for a little walk with the dogs tomorrow. Seems like the refuge system is immune to the 'Rona. Newsome don't hunt!

Hunted the first day at local wildlife refuge. First day was real tough jist like last year. Too dry and the refuge was behind last year flooding fields for ducks. The birds are running way out in front. I watched several birds flee way out in front. Tje last part of ladt season was very good after fields were flooded and we had that rain to hold the birds

I'm gonna say it right here, even though there are no pheasants in Ca and if you do see em they are all very small and weak. NaCl Slough for Sunday, Gustine for Saturday. I heard a big crew put a dent in the population on Saturday, in Gustine, 10 guys pushing the fields, team work. This intel is no mystery, just putting in the time and effort.

I was at china in the afternoon, saw guys with 2 birds, they said they saw 4 other roosters taken. i knocked one down and the armor plated bugger ran off. We jumped 2 hens and one rooster, guys hunting doves all over. We had two dogs hammering the bush.

I left by noon. Hardly heard a shot. There are still alot of birds there. I flushed a hen. I saw three pheasants. They ran far ahead and ran over the bank and took off. This week will be even worse. I live on a ranch i own outside gustine. We really didnt get any rain last night. I think last year eight roosters were taken the first day. I imagine the numbers this year are close to that

We hit Los Banos, 8 miles of thorns and thick bush kicking, the dogs worked hard, not the basic Kick and Shoot.
I'll be at the Pump lot tomorrow, see how things go.

Lots of people out there in the fields, a good thing I guess, the pups and I managed to bag one rooster. We put up three roosters, hit one and the bugger tumbled and ran, killed one, one flushed way wild, as well as six hens. All in all, an excellent in the grasslands.
There were a mess of folks out there enjoying the hunt.
