    Our lack of rain and high heat is taking it's toll on pheasant cover, and with the severe drought designation for most of the pheasant states the restrictions on haying and grazing of  CRP is being waived.  I am hoping the birds will find some way to adapt.  The dove seem to be thick this summer,  they certainly don't seem to mind the heat. I saw on another site a hunter form the south west part of Nebraska had already kicked off the dove season hunting the eurasian doves.  He was getting about a dozen per day, using a Mojo Decoy, hiding in the shade of a John Deere.  I have a John Deere I guess I need one of those decoys. Anyone else ready for  bird season?

    I was out last weekend in South Dakota near Mitchell and the cover definitely seems to be a lot thinner this year. The bird count is good. Saw plenty of birds on the public ground. Going into winter it will be tough on the birds if we have a bad winter with the limited cover

    I heard the Spring was really rough on birds this year. Has anybody got an update?
