Just got back from out west we ended with 5 roosters for 4 of us and i will say we worked for them! There is alot of snow in the cattails most of the birds we got came from willow thickets. Saw probably at least 75 birds with alot of them roosters. Birds are very skittish and flush ahead. A blocker is a must. Hope we dont get alot more snow as the pheasants are scratching hard for feed in the corn stubble. I am sadly done for the year good luck to all who venture out yet. As I sit here and type I cant help but smile,I look over at my lab crashed out on the couch and have to say thanks to the big man upstairs it was one of my best seasons ever and I enjoyed every day of it!

Went out last Friday for a few hours in SE Nodak. Saw maybe 40 pheasants, of which my GWP pointed at least half. The rest were flushing wild. Oh, and ALL were hens. Don't know where the roosters were, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't darn tempted to scratch a hen just so my boy got to make a retrieve (no, I did NOT, and no I would NOT, but I'm just saying...). By the end of the day, he was pretty disgusted with how well he was working and my lack of shooting.

Oh well, I'll be out Sunday and Monday again. Those stinking ditch clowns can't hide forever.
