Just returned from Pheasants in South Dakota. Great trip, lots of Birds. Went with Wilkeshunter from here and his friend Bruce. Along with a loooog time hunting friend and his Son. We tramped along behind Merlot and Clancy. If any are looking to test their Dog, legs and shooting against Wild Pheasants, I can highly recommend Birddog Bunkhouse for all three.
On the way, outside of Chicago thing were a little slippery.
However, the weather was about perfect for the rest of the trip.
Wilkeshunter, his Bud Bruce and Merlot.
Bruce and his first ever Wild Rooster.
Phil his Son and Clancy.
One more that Merlot pushed out for me.
As the others finished up the day trying for one more Bird, Merlot and I watched them flush a couple more, along with others flying in to roost for the night.
