Lots of Roosters Showing Off

Recommended Posts

I know breeding season can last for a few months across MN but I'd have to argue that its peaking based on how many roosters I'm seeing daily on my commute. I may have to leave earlier next week and snap a few pictures. They are putting on lots of shows for hens...in ditches, on ridgelines, in open spots...anywhere to show off with puffed chests, ruffled feathers and squawking.

Anybody else seeing lots of show off roosters on the roadsides?

Maybe they are on to something... Look at most of us slobs, we put on a fancy shirt, some new jeans and slick our hair, maybe a dash of cologne for our ladies. The rooster pheasants, they fluff up, strut, act tough and the do little dances. hmmmmmmmmm, dancing, that must be it!!!

The shows are cool to witness, I have seen a couple fights too, WOW impressive. Neat time of year, won't be long and tons of chick will be scurrying on the roads!!!!

I have seen a pile of them in the ditches on the way to work. Hopefully this weather will straighten out. I think we are going to be looking at a very good year for birds. I agree I think I may need to leave a bit early and take some pictures as well. It would be nice to see a bit more snow in the winter to help hunt the yote so they quit killin so many birds.

Headed to North Branch this morning and saw about 10 by my place. One had the best color to him. It was amazing. Saw a hen fly across the road the other day followed by 3 roosters. Wonder what happened later?

I agree with the amount of bird sightings. The last few years I have seen very few but this spring for some odd reason in my area there seem to be a large amount of birds. Lets hope for a good spring for nesting and the fall shall be very enjoyable.

I've seen and heard tons of birds in the last 2 days out turkey hunting.

Last night I saw one rooster with a harem of 4 hens and he ran off another rooster. I also video taped them mating with the video camera. Hopefully if we get that edited I can post it up.

The door is open for so many comments right now, but I will just leave them all alone!!!!!

I am very excited to see some chicks. I just hope conditions stay favorable for a good nesting, hatch and first 6 weeks so we have a good strong bird ready to take on the elements.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
