Quail are more plentiful and spread out. Pheasants are not. Look for corn fields with the darker colored soil like they have in Iowa and you will find pheasants. Milo is good too. Missouri does not stock birds to my knowledge.
    Thank you again for the guidance. Last night I was looking at the conservation areas in the Northwest Regions and some were listing good populations. My mom's family is from Centerville, IA - just north of Unionville, MO. I might have to go up towards the north part of the state in the center and see what I kind of luck I have on a visit up to Iowa.. Just debating on the far northwest corner or the farthest point north of the state, right now. Very cool there are wild pheasant in MO.

    Seems kinda silly standing out there when there are just the two parties. That was the last time I lined up with others. We did well that day.

    Not much shooting opening day. Semi-crowded. Only lasted a little over an hour.
