Pheasant's any one

Postby duckdog » Wed May 11, 2005 10:30 pm

Who love's to go out and bust some pheaasant's in the fall, when the duck's are'nt flying? I live in NW IOWA so there is plenty of them shot 48 of them last year. Actually only went out after them twice, the rest of them I got walking out of the slough duck hunting mostly, or see them out to my dads farm, and go after them.
Any day in the outdoor's is better than at work

That sounds like fun duckdog. I wish Missouri had pheasants like that. I'm going to make a trip to SD this fall, and several trips up to NW Missouri, where the pheasants are supposed to be somewhat populated. It sounds like I may have to plan a trip to Iowa sometime too.

While I mostly waterfowl hunt. I always spend at least one three day weekend hunting pheasants with my dad. It is pretty much our annual trip together. It is the one I have always made through college and work and everything else. I live almost 7 hours from home now so we don't get to hunt together as much as we used to.

I sure enjoy watching dogs work and I am still amazed every time a rooster explodes out of the grass or cattails. I always get that little rush.
For a good time.....go hunting and eat kuchen.

No fair! :pissed: The closest wild pheasants to me are something crazy like a 18hr. drive. I would absolutely love to pheasant hunt. I'm seriously considering booking a hunt in SD or somewhere where there are some wild roosters. The drive just sucks though.
If the hunting is cold, luckily so is the beer!

My favorite hunt is ducks in the morning, walk the fields for pheasants and then get the geese in the afternoon! :getdown:

Although Iowa has some excellent rooster hunting, if I were to go on a trip to shoot them. I would opt for South Dakota it is by far the pheasant capitol( hard to admit it :laughing: )

I have hunted ND, SD and MN for pheasants and for pure numbers of birds it is hard to beat SD.

I'm thinking about a trip to Kansas and SD next year. The one bad thing I have heard about SD is the unbelievable numbers of birds. I have a dog that I like to work and see it hunt. I have heard that dogs that aren't used to it go crazy when they go into a field and there is bird scent everywhere. Also I have heard stories of guys limiting out in less than an hour. It's about a 10 to 12 hour drive for me and I want to hunt for most of the day if I'm doing that. I'm going to try to make both trips and see which is better.

Let us know how it goes. I would love to go SD some day to hunt. My grandfather used to go there for a month to hunt pheasants every year.

We have a fair number of pheasants. It's good hunting, nothing like SD or anything, but it gets all of us by.....though funny thing is.....this is my third year and I still haven't killed me a rooster. Most of the time I choke and miss all three or two or maybe even one shot! They scare the crap out of me so......but mostly everytime we go my friend gets one and he gives me the first 2 shots :oops: .....I'm just the unlucky one! :thumbsdown:

i go out to iowa to see my aunt and uncle over thanksgiving and usually get some pheasant hunting in then. last year i got 2 roosters and a ton of rabbits. ive been shooting at them for 5 years (since i was 11 or 12) and got my first one when i was in 6th grade. it has almost become a tradition for me to miss the first one i see every year because it is really supprising when they jump out from your feet. great fun tho

i plan on giving it a try sometime soon...hopefully even this year. my biggest problem is having the time to do all of the trips i want to take. who knows though, maybe i can work out a combo on one of the ducks trips i am taking.

I love to hunt ringnecks. I grew up hunting them. We use to have a fair share around here. Now most everything here close is in subdivisions. I still manage a few but I travel north to Idaho for most of my pheasant hunts these days. I have two close friends that are English Setters that really make for an enjoyable hunt. No matter what breed you hunt you have to love the dog work on pheasants.

I will agree we do have aton of pheasants here. But also remeber we do have ducks and geese to hunt. Depends on when you come you could hunt all day. So you should really give it a try. I would recomend to come some time in Nov. Most out of state hunters are gone by then and you can hunt from 10 untill sunset, and if you limit, you can then go hunt ducks and geese or go fishing.
