    I didn't have them and my hunting buddy did; he had the Hodgman's hip waders. I wished I had them on more than a few occasions. I actually bought a pair of the Lacrosse knee-highs on the way back...

    Spent the last 4 days hunting around Aberdeen and I don't know if I would plan on being able to walk on anything. The forecast looks pretty chilly so it might be, not sure I would plan on it.

    I just returned from my second trip to SD as well. Hit it for 6-7 days in early November and it was a tough go; too much corn still in and some tough weather but we still shot a fair amount of...

    All in all, it sounds like a great couple days of hunting. Nice work! I try to never judge a hunt by the body count and it sounds like your dog was a pleasure to watch.

    I'm heading back to SD...

    Good story, thanks for sharing.

    They add so much to our life and they don't want much in return. I'll never NOT have a dog

    Damn... REALLY making me think strongly about a second trip after Thanksgiving. The season only comes around once a year! I may have to start begging the Mrs. to let me take another trip!

    Just got back from spending 7 days in SD, partly around Aberdeen and partly around Gettysburg. Way too much corn still in. I told my hunting buddy that came over from MN that we should wait another...

    Got here on Saturday and have had some decent luck, although the conditions have been tougher than we can recall over the last 15 years or so. Two guys and my GSP have shot 20 in 5 days so far but...

    I've been going there for 20 years plus, almost entirely east of the river, and never come across one that I can recall. Knock on wood!

    I agree with all of this 100%. Well said.

    I've been hitting SD for 20 years for pheasant and have never really paid to hunt. One area we've been going for 10-12 years now, we've gotten to know a...

    One of the main reasons I don't head that way until November! Clear out most of the early hunters in the first few weeks, let the weather get a little cooler, less crop in the field; everything...

    Back to the OP thoughts...

    I decided to try this two years ago. I had ALWAYS seen tons of birds when driving through there on the way to my usual final destination, on US 212, finally gave it a...

    I don't know much about their setup specifically but I ran up there one day last fall and again this fall and didn't see much for birds around the area. I would guess theirs are all pen-raised and...

    I am just guessing about the new hatch birds; just basing it off of the color and size of the birds. 3 or so were distinctly smaller and the color hadn't come in yet. A majority of the ones we...

    I agree with this. Between me and my hunting buddy, and my GSP Tuff, we have 20 in the freezer after 4 days and change, with another 5-6+ that couldn’t be retrieved. No private land, all public and...

    Can’t decide if things are as bleak as all the reports from one day of hunting so far for me but they aren’t great, that’s for sure.

    Started today just by myself and my GSP and got really lucky. ...

    Hitting the road Wednesday for the 20+ hour drive to chase the wily roosters. I wouldn’t miss it for anything, regardless of how the reports are. Me and my GSP meeting my hunting buddy of 27 years,...

    Some others already hit the nail on the head. Slow and into the wind. Before I got my GSP my hunting buddy and I hunted for years just the two of us and no dog. You get smart really fast and...

    Britton was very tough last year, haven't heard yet about this year. We frequent there and last year was bad enough we started venturing further away. Not sure if we'll go there this year or not or...

    There's a small bit of validity to the OP's point. No doubt, there are places in SD that don't want you there unless you are patronizing the locals game farms and lodges. As a non-resident, early...
