    Oy...I don't know. Mine ran true. They seem plenty roomy.
    Also, now that I've got a full season on them, I will say the I.S. Elk Tracker 885's are my favorite boots ever. Ultra-comfy. Light. No...

    Been there; done that. They're great if you need to cross vast expanses of snow to GET to a spot to hunt. And sure, they'd keep you from getting wet in a slough most of the time. But have you ever...

    Goose, this isn't a commentary on your skill, your opinions, or your truck. Simply would like to know what you consider a "canned hunt". As you likely know, hunting taking place in SD in March...

    Never had such an experience, but then I've never hunted w/ a guide. I'm guessing those were mostly released birds he didn't want to fly off his ground. Doesn't sound like much fun. Although I...

    See "Sand Lake NWR pheasant hunting alert" in the main "Pheasant Hunting Forum". Confirms my suspicions mentioned above.

    I’m not real familiar with public land in the Watertown or Aberdeen areas, and I don’t know the exact snow/ice conditions up there (I’m in Sioux Falls). But I’d want to get a good handle on those...

    See, this is why I'm a springer guy. They train ME so quickly & completely that I'm oblivious to any of my dog's shortcomings. It's just easier that way.

    The brown & white kind are better trainers...

    When you drive a '72 F-O-R-D (Dodge reference) "Farm Truck", you learn quickly that it's important to keep spare parts handy.

    Well, here's my $0.02. The public land near the MN border gets absolutely hammered by MN residents. Not saying you'd have tons of competition over that last week of the year, but for the most part,...

    :cheers: Nice one! Pretty sure I know where you're going with that. You've gotta have really good eyes, but I think it can be done.

    I'm really starting to like this idea. :rolleyes: Not necessarily for cold weather/water, but early season maybe.

    OVER your boot??? Ugh. I can about imagine myself trying to pull them on/off OVER my boots. I'd put several holes in them putting them on. Then more when I step on an old, tough thistle. Then...

    Don't know about Mitchell.
    Around Salem, they didn't get any corn planted anyway, so it's a moot point.
    Sioux Falls & north to about Arlington.....seemed like maybe 40-50% as of Sunday.

    Similar to my previous comment, am I missing something? Or am I right that they'd be worn w/ only socks? No boots involved, since pheasant hunters won't have wading shoes/boots tucked in their...

    Thanks. Hope your able to line up a great trip. Now, about your signature..... Think about all those guys & their fancy pointers, hunting private land, full of birds that have never been hunted. ...

    Mike, have a great trip! If you find out what happened to those birds in the non-planted areas, let me know. Maybe it's just me being hopeful, but my theory of travelling long distances is looking...

    Thanks Jon. I didn't have to pass on any over sloughs this past weekend, but it definitely was on my mind. In fact, Saturday I told my daughter, "If one gets up & flies over the slough, we don't...
  20. Long-winded thoughts (for what they're worth)

    Ace & I had about a 75 minute drive home last night after hunting in some weather that was crappy for picnics at the beach, but pretty good for pheasant hunting. I did some thinking. One thing I...

    Boy am I confused by these!! I'm sure there's no way you're going to get them over your hunting boots; plus it'd wear out the feet if you did. And if you put your boots on OVER the waders, now your...

    I don't know anybody (that's hunted many years) that hasn't shot one either.
    But saying low light, snow, etc. made it an accident seems absurd to me. If you were 100% certain it was a rooster...
