    Nice. It’s been a tough year for me timing wise, but the few times I’ve gotten out - quail has been real down where I hunt in Paducah, and grass burrs have been up. I’ll have more time now to get...

    I hunted the Atwood/Mcdonald/Colby area and we did well on private land, so-so on WIHA. They were very jumpy though - even on private land that had not been pressured since opening weekend. Good news...

    hrm.

    Oil money is held by a select few, and I'm not one of them. I work for mine, thank you.

    Texas just has no public land worth a crap to hunt. If you want to hunt, and you don't own land, you lease...

    rooster

    Yeah, he was good sized and long tail, but his spur was a tiny nub - that means first year bird, right?

    Gents, what's a good estimate for the going rate for private lease prices in north central / northwest KS? Say from around Hays to Atwood? I'd like to get into a nice long term lease private for...

    Yikes

    No doubt. It was getting down to under 10 degrees at night. My gsp was shivering in her insulated box, had to double box her in with my lab. Fine once we started hunting, but i hate to think what...

    I just got back from Hays and a little south of it, roads were fine. There were a few spots that drifts made it bad and I didn't chance it, and just went the long way around. There was 1 field out of...

    Seconded on the suoerglue

    My gsp had a tear in the ear, not all the way thru. I superglued it in the field, and got her to the vet later. Vet said she'd probably just scratch / shake out stitches, and said the glue was fine...

    I know, pretty crazy. She'll be fine. I cleaned it and wrapped it and let her hunt a little bit in a low grass field the next morning. She was still pushing hard, so I think she'll be fine.

    Well

    I'm an out of stater from Texas - and I wouldn't mind if the OOS license fee was doubled. It's dirt cheap. But if the WIHA is killed, it's a moot point. There's no reason to buy an OOS license if...

    wow

    That's expensive. $120 here. I knew there was potential for some muscle loss / weight gain if you don't stay on top of it. I can manage around that, but if it ruins any hunting drive - then no dice....
