How did you do? Pheasants have been hard to come by this year. South Dakota is debating on raising the limit from 3 to 5 birds for the remainder of the season. We had too much crop still on the ground.

North Dakota has not been much better. Well at least Eastern North Dakota

I'd be interested to hear how Dirty Dave did as well.

He'll be along shortly. He didn't realize that cowboy's up there give guy's with long hair a haircut with sheep shears! Actually they have up in eastern and central Montana when I lived up there. Yes

Hahaha Don, No culture shock. I know what to expect. I've been going up there all my life.
Only got to hunt 2 days. It was a little tough but fun. First day was raining for the 1st half of the day, only got 2 roosters. Second day was better, got my limit of 3 in about 2 hrs. There was only 2 of us shooting and no dog. Brought home 5 birds, cooked em for thanksgiving.
