    I've got a 3 day hunt planned to North Dakota at the end of October and a 3 day hunt planned to Iowa for the beginning of November.  I'm hoping to get back to Iowa to end the season, but that is weather dependant.  I'm open to try and hook-up with any of you gamebirdhunts members for a little hunt if you're interested too.  How about everybody else.  Any plans?  Details?  Hopes?  Hunting season is just around the corner so fill us in.

    I'll start hunting Grouse the 1st of September here in Oregon. Then Pheasants, Chukar, and Quail in October and still some Grouse to. Plan on going to Idaho and Washington this year a few times. It's weird only having 3 dogs but man are they going to get alot of ground time. I'm getting laid off probably the first part of October so I'll be hunting almost every day. Plus we have 4 elk tags and 4 deer tags.Hope you all have a great season.

    You guys must be independently wealthy, how can you afford all those out of state/non-resident licenses?

    I am only hunting PA this year. Pheasant season is going to stink this year, they are only stocking 15,000 birds statewide and there is hardly any wild birds in the state. I might not even go out, upland bird hunting is getting to be a waste of time up here. I will stick to turkeys and deer instead. October 2nd through November 13 you will find me up a tree or in a ground blind, no walking the fields this year:-(.

    On both of my tirps out of state I'm staying with friends so my lodging is free.  We also usually cook most of our meals in the house saving money that way.  I'm also going on one trip with a friend so my gas cost is cut in half.  Unfortunately, on that same trip I'm taking my son so any savings will easily be spent feeding a 14 year old.  Cripes, I'm almost ready to get a second job to keep the frig full the way that it is!

    markvan, I feel your pain. I'll be heading to Iowa but I'm not expecting very much. With numbers expected to be down double digits again it just keeps getting worse and worse. Good luck to you when you do go. If there is a silver lining, it looks like the crops are drying up sooner this year. Hopefully by opening day a good percentage of the crops will be off the fields.

    Porknbeans, I know a lot of farmers in Iowa and I will get a full report from them during harvest if they are seeing any birds in the fields. Three really tuff wet springs in a row in the area that I hunt in Iowa!! HARD on bird numbers!! I work in the seed business so hunting pheasants is a good excuse to walk corn fields LOL

    I am heading South Dakota this year the second week of the season. This will be my first time hunting true wild birds. I am looking forward to it, but I think the dog will have a lot more fun.

    Cocktailsncigars, welcome to the site. You'll have a blast in SD. Both from the fun you'll be having and the sound from your smokepoles. Keep us posted and chime in anywhere else on the forum you would like. Nice to have you on board.

    Freek, welcome to the forum. The Iowa DNR's Roadside report is depressing to read. I hope you can find good fortune when you get to the NE corner. I'll be in the NW corner in a couple of weeks and then in the CR area to finish out the season.

    What a 2 week span. My trip to North Dakota yielded 18 pheasants, 1 sharp tail grouse, a run in with a porcupine and a skunk. Absolutely wonderful weather and super land to hunt. It was an amazing time and I got to spend it all with my son. I wasn't expecting much from my trip to Iowa, but I was very pleasantly surprised. 24 pheasants and a side trip for Bobwhite Quail (bagged 11 after 2 boxes of shells). My dog was amazing until the last run of the first day of my Iowa trip. She stepped on something and it went alomst through her foot between the pads. It swelled up to the size of a small apple. A trip to the vet, some meds, a soak in some epsom salt and the rest of the trip off and she's back to normal. I broiled some birds last night after marinating in teriyaki garlic sauce. Yum!

    I've got a co-worker that is thinking about heading to Kansas for phez. The out of state license fees are reasonable and it looks like numbers are exceptionally good.

    That second shot is beautiful. I love the lone tree in the pic.

    I haven't been able to get out lately so I'm living my hunting dreams through your pics. Keep them coming. I've got 2 preserve hunts for later this month but that's about it. I might try to sneak out this Saturday but with the flu and really bad colds running through our house I'm not sure what the immediate future holds right now.

    im 15. dont have a car or a driving licesne but i would die for a pheasent hunt. Here in Gilbertsville where i hunt we dont have pheasents. ive seen 2 pheasents in my entire life here but let them fly becasue i want them to make a comeback around here. I mostly grouse hunt though. But from what i see on TV grouse is nothing compared to the thrill of hunting pheasents. North Dakota is pheasent hunters dream i have been told. Would love to save up the Money to get a guided trip with dogs and all.

      There is a LOT of satisfaction grinding out those wise/educated roosters.
