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.
This past April we planted about 500 Russian Olive trees. It was a grueling 2 days of work! Lots of sun, trees, digging & watering. Hopefully the trees will root well and make it. Give it 10+ years and the pheasants should have some great additional habitat.
Big thanks to Krist & Ron for helping us!
My father-in-law and I went hunting at the Rooster Ridge Pheasant Club with Duke & Scout the other weekend. Duke is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon and Scout is his and Tish’s (German Wirehair) puppy. Scout is turning out to be one heck of a retriever, especially for only being 14 weeks old!
Second weekend over at the farm. My father-in-law, George Bingham, came along with his dog Duke.
