You should not be running after April 15.

I live just south of Traverse City was near the Manistee River 2 days ago, dog pointed one woodcock, one pat (ruffed grouse) and we moved 3 other pats. Total time out was 1.5 hrs. We should have a few more opportunities before the 'quiet time' starts...after the snow tonight melts at least.

Last Saturday I found a wc already sitting on 4 eggs in the thumb.

Sounds like it's time to start the "quiet season" then...breakout the steelhead rod!
