Well it was another beautiful pheasant opening weekend in Eastern Montana. The cool weather really helped the dogs track and not overheat. Just one bird short of our two-day limit wasn’t too bad. Most of the birds we harvested were fairly mature. Most other hunters seemed to have quite a few younger birds in their possession and this could be contributed to the release of many farmed pheasants in the area. Here are a few pictures from over the weekend:
A few pictures of the great time I had over in Eastern Montana pheasant hunting. I’m not sure there are a lot of birds this year as we really had to hunt hard to get our limit! Top that with most of the young birds get shot the first week or two and that makes for lots of walking for the rest of the season.
It was a cold windy day but we did great! The weather even brought the elk down to see what we were doing.
Second weekend over at the farm. My father-in-law, George Bingham, came along with his dog Duke.
Here are a few pheasant hunting pictures taken over at our farm in Valier, MT on opening day.
My Uncle Bob and I made a trip up to our property near Usherville, Saskatchewan. While we were up there we did quite a bit of goose and duck hunting but also managed to get in some grouse hunting. I also jumped in and helped (with moral support) the local butcher who just harvested a moose. Taking a break from hunting we went on a trip to Armit Lake, Manitoba with our friend Blair Mitchell to do some fishing. Here are a few photos from our trip.
