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:
While driving up to Canada to get Scud we stopped by the farm to check on things. It’s was nice and sunny and there quite a few birds (pheasants) from what I could see. Here are a few photos I took on the way up to Canada, mostly around the farm and towards the Sweetgrass Hills.
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.
