Iowa spilled the beans. Best quail year in many years.

I am old enough to remember the 80s. Everyone had either a bird or coon dog. The shooting range had leagues. You found your new pup in the want ads. (Now you make a regional search.) Money was being spent.

Missouri is investing in walk-in hunting areas.

This would be a good time to show Missouri the value of the upland hunting economy. If you have been putting off upland purchases, now would be a good time to buy, especially from a place that collects Missouri taxes. Bought a pair of pants and three boxes of shells last night.

A little short time pain could lead to better hunting in the future.
