Pheasant Trip

Discussion in 'Upland Game hunting, Dogs and dog training' started by Dock Holiday, Jan 5, 2006.

  1. I just got home from 9 day stretch of Pheasant hunting. Spent 5 Days in South Dakota, and stopped off in Iowa for 4 days of bird hunting with my Brother. It was a great trip. South Dakota was amazazing, We shot our limit every day. Iowa was good too! My dogs are worn down as am I but if I had more time off we'd both be ready to go tommorro. That pretty much wraps up my season, I might try some quail down south, anyone know if there are any birds at Minnehaha FWA?

    Sounds like a neat trip...did talk to someone who hunted in Sullivan Co. on some private land and said the quail were there...not sure about Minne.

    I can imagine you're exhausted after a trip like that...that's a lot of hunting

  3. My dogs are rail thin, I was feeding Iams the the whole time but they still lost weight. Tons of fun though. Hard on the pocket book

    Never hunted Minnehaha.. Did get a couple of coveys up at Tri-County years ago when we went for the clean up.

    I think if you have a good dog...and the birds are around, you'll find them..if you know what cover to look for.
  7. Sounds like a lot of fun.:cool:

    Let us know what you find...I know the population in Daviees county was pretty good when we went down over Christmas.
  10. Will post up next after the hunt
