    Those are nice too.

    But I have come to like longer legs and tails





    I hunted for the first time outside of KS last fall. Went to MT, and it was awesome. We didn't get into tons of birds but enough to keep everyone interested.

    I also have these guys who will make their first trip west this year and hopefully see their first birds.DSCN8714.JPG

    It was dry in E MT last Fall so I doubt there will be a lot of Sweet Clover.

    For sure some good grass and weeds for the pups.

    Last year was my third year hunting in Montana and I saw the most birds of the three years. I like the sharptails and huns so I go out early in Sept and I usually dont have weather problems and camping is nice. But this past season I saw way more pheasants than ever before and I was tempted to stay for pheasant season. I am hoping with the good amount of birds last year and a good spring that this year will be even better. I hope they kept my best spots in the block managment program also.

    Everything looks good now, but if we don't get moisture the rest of the summer and it gets hot, we could be in trouble. Last year there were several BMA's and some private that I hunt that were closed for a while due to drought and fire danger. It has definitely been wetter this spring than last spring though. I went back to Glendive memorial day and it was nice and green. Headed to fort peck over the 4th for some r&r. Last year central mt looked better than eastern mt at that time. With any luck this will be a good bird season.
    A bad day of hunting always beats a good day at work.

    I hope so. I'm looking forward to my first trip to MT this Fall. Here's hoping for fair weather the rest of the way..

    Last year I was there for the first 3 weeks of Sept and it was good and pheasants were everyplace. Just around when I was leaving they started closing areas for fear of fire it was dry and hot. I also hope we get a little cooler weather always so the dogs last longer. It can be tough on the dogs thats why I added the two pups that brings me to four dogs. This year will be there first and I wont shoot any birds over them yet but in future years I should be in good shape. Now I just have to hope I can keep myself going.

    I haven't hunted eastern Montana in a few years. Have the deer rebounded from the mite problem a few years ago? that is a fun combo trip to take, but the pheasants can be really fun in those wide open spaces.

    From what I've heard the deer are still struggling in parts of eastern mt. It hasn't been as good as in years past. It's been a few years since I did any deer hunting in those parts though.
    A bad day of hunting always beats a good day at work.
