Some guys had tough going because of all the corn that is still in the fields. You should be good to go in two weeks though.

We did all right this past weekend. Still lots and lots of cover and too nice of weather. I like it nasty out there when I'm chasing pheasants. I think we totaled 6 out of our small group Saturday and then I shot a couple on Sunday by myself and I don't know how the rest of the fellas did.

We eneded up with 24 for the two days with 8 guys. Hunted by Lake Ponisett.

My buddies Dad was out by Kennebec, SD and said that he has never seen so many birds. I guess they limited out quickly.

Thinking of trying a do it yourself trip to the huron area or aberdeen. Is this doable for 2 guys, 2 dogs? Traditionally i go to Iowa, but the birds are down. Any tips on lodging and public around the area would be appreciated.

Thanks,

BHS

Tons of birds up by Pollock this weekend. We took a break from bowhunting yesterday afternoon and shot 5 birds. We didn't have a dog so we were just walking some of the core land and trying to flush them ourselves.

I hunted all public walk in areas today, even with the elements 40mph winds, snow etc. We only hunted for an 1.5 hours just before dark and didn't have a problem finding our birds.

Was lots of fun with my pointers and the birds sitting nice and tight!

Still lots of corn in, and with the weather we have had now, its gonna take some warm temps or a really cold freeze before the rest will be coming out.

I will be out again tomorrow, hopefully the wind wont be as bad as it was today.

    • Check out the 2017 Obsession Hurcan 366fps and 3.9 lbs!
    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
