Well it was trying to snow and rain this morning. We went out anyway, got really wet right off, but it was worth it as we flushed about 4 cocks and 4 or 6 hens at the first place we went. Didn't bag any as we made a bit of an error when working the area. The birds flew out right when we were in a bit of trees and then flew out around so shooting was difficult to say the least. Just being out finding some birds and spending a day with 17 yr old son was more then worth it. I remember being taken out pheasant hunting by my brothers 70 yr old neighbor about 25 yrs ago, so I think my son will remember these times even more. It is amazing how fast those pheasants can take flight and make distance. We have to be carefull as to not shoot the hens. They are not ever in season. Anyone have a dog they want to lend us. This is one of the greatest spots to hunt, but its big and there is so many places for them to hide.
