Looks like some good times. Awful lot of leaves on the trees here. I understand how you could easily go 1 for 26.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

Looks like a fine meal. That’s a bird on my short list. I’ve always heard they run a 6-8 year cycle as far as population goes. Are they at the top of it this year?

Sounds like you have few birds there. I have seen a few but haven't taken the gun out yet.

Are you in the UP? I have heard this year is a great year for them. 1 of of 26 is not bad. You can walk a mile with gun ready and as soon as you let your guard down one will flush.

Some of ours are runners, Nessie, some sit tight. Too many leaves still on the trees to see what kind of population we have this year.
