Well, I'll type it out some time.its been in our family for a long time.I prefer pheasant, over sharptail, and the eastern sharptails are better eating than the central my. Birds.
You should be sweating by Wed.
Are you guys in eastern mt.?
That's wonderful. This is sort of a down year for mt.But it's still good.Try between Lewistown, and Roy, Mt.
Good on ya.no pay hunting, no new suburban, no wine, no fancy bs.what I do, is I act like I'm retarted, and it works for getting permission. I gi t a rooster, and 2 grouse today, and missed on a flock of huns, and a group of 5 roosters, because I had trouble with my saftey!! LolGoosemaster, I hunt alone too, drive a truck with 400,000 miles on the odometer with just a camper shell that I sleep in the back of and hunted with one dog. I take my hat off when I introduce myself and use the manners my mother taught me. I slow down on those gravel roads when I meet another vehicle so I don't break windshields or get mine broken. I shot no more than two birds in any spot and moved on leaving just bent grass. Like you, I found that made a difference. Those are good, generous, tough people back there and they understand and respect someone who understands that they are visitors in somebody else's house. Guys who hunt in groups with a bunch of dogs will never see the hunting you and I have experienced. I can't recall walking more than a mile to shoot the birds I wanted and only walked a longer distance to get back to the truck over a different route and avoid trespassing on land I had no permission to be on.

It all comes down to scouting, never hunting with more than one other guy, or hunting alone, looking pathetically poor, but not looking shabby, driving a farm truck, sometimes acting retarted,talking to farmers, not looking like a hunter.Sometimes I wear a old golf shirt, and I look kind of like Nick faldo, and that works for getting permissions. If they think you are pathetic, and no threat to their bird population, they might let you hunt.
