    Default The Fat Lady is about to sing

    In about 30 hours the fat lady will start singing. In about 60 days the fat lady will have sung. It should be an interesting 60 days here on the South Dakota thread of Ultimate Pheasant Hunting web site. There will be 1000 bird sightings, and hunters that did not fire a shot. There will be many limits taken, and many will come up short. Released birds that are thought to be wild, and wild birds will be considered released. There will be lots of false information spread about how good the hunting is, and how bad the hunting is. There will be tens of 1000's of gallons of beer drank, and 1000's of gallons of whiskey. The strippers are in or on their way to Dallas and the Congo club, complaining about how cheap the hunters are.

    In 60 days we should have a good idea of what the future of South Dakota pheasant hunting looks like. Is it headed in the direction of Iowa and Nebraska, or will the pay to play/habitat farms produce enough pheasants to keep the hunters coming from all around the world? We shall see.

    Good luck to all the hunters headed to Wonderful South Dakota! Have fun and watch out for the blockers!!!

    Lots of variables on all aspects, but you pretty much covered the most important items.

    Im trying to plan to get there next week, but nothing is concrete yet. Doesnt matter what the report is. Dont drink beer, dont frequent the clubs, but the whiskey and the walleyes may be in trouble.. Its all good. I for sure will be there 1st week in Nov.

    Ive refrained from posting, mostly because it would be considered negative, and that would not be my intention. My postings in the past, have been my actual on the ground experiences behind two seasoned dogs, and nothing more or less.. As a one man hunter, I cannot cover as much ground as the groups, nor do I want to.

    Good luck to all that venture to South Dakota..

    I would still suspect that good reports will be slim, but not because it didnt happen, but more because most will not want to say where they were, or at least very generic in terms of location..

    Jetifantasy, I wish you the best of luck hunting at the uguide Miller camp the 2nd to last week of November. There will have been at least 4 groups that hunted before you so it will be a good test of my theory that after 4 or 5 weeks of hunting the "wild" pay to play places are going to have very few roosters left.

    Please let us know how that hunt goes, and be safe out there.

    I don't think it's so important to i.d. the released and wild roosters, but a guy wouldn't want to get NOPLCLKNEB's fat lady singer and strippers confused.

    Obviously you have never been to a strip club in Nebraska, the strippers have dual roles as fat-lady singers. I could share a horrible story about a strip club in Alma about '85 or so

    I will post how it went . I am glad you have read my previous posts . I was encouraged that the 5 th hunter we picked up is a repeat uguide hunter and this year decided to add a second week by joining us that speaks a lot . Sorry if I tweaked you , your response makes me feel like I hurt your feelings. If you want more info on me glad to oblige . You just seem to want to be the storm ... I want to be the sun.

    For the other 1800 guys out there desperately trying to Google Hove, SD. I think he probably meant Hoven.
