    Default Why so quiet?

    Anyone else think the forum is slow this year? Where are KBell and what have traditionally been the other consistent contributors? I hope all remain well.

    Sure would be nice if this domain had a mobile app for easier use. I'm sure that would drive traffic up. Uploading and linking to pictures within this forum is a pain in the rear! Any Admins reading this and care to comment?

    Nate - I was wondering the same thing, especially about Kbell. I saw something not too long ago that he was driving down my towards Indianola. That was before season. Still looking for his first great report!

    I think the heat may have a few people laying low till it cools off a bit too. Not sure, just a thought.

    I snoop around the Iowa threads some. I killed my first ever wild pheasant in Poweshiek county in the early 2000's. I have hunted there two more times since. Last time was 2007 /08. I really enjoyed Iowa and have considered trying it again. Hope you guys have a great year!

    Could be the case, sure.

    I sent KBell a message -- no response just yet.

    Good populations are getting smaller and smaller in Iowa. Many areas aren't even worth hunting. I think that is why nobody wants to share their good areas with the world. We are doing OK and the areas we hunt are not vast so I would never post them and invite more pressure. Its like fishing. You can talk terrain and presentation but not spots.

    good question on being so quiet, we are seeing birds, better than last year, but not seeing any hunters !! so maybe nobody is hunting so nobody is posting?
    however I am on another forum different state, where we went to hunt ducks for 20 years, that forum was having several posts every hour for years, last year it slowed down and this year there was a whole month between posts for ducks, and only on epost on pheasants in the last 30 days. no idea. "LIVE TO HUNT PHEASANTS" but it is interesting to come to this site daily to see hwats up.. and now not much to read, happy hunting

    IA at Heart told me about this forum so I'm new to the forum, glad I've just joined at a slow time!

    As others have mentioned it's been nasty warm out so far this season, nice to see the 10 day forecast with some lows down in the 20's and no high's that start with a 7 for once!

    Not sure what others are seeing but we experienced some really flighty/jumpy birds on opener and the quick hunt I got out for this past weekend. I know i'm dreaming but I would LOVE some snow here soon to hunt in!

    Hey, glad you found it and welcome. It is definitely slow right now. Lots of good posts though throughout the season. Like you, I am ready for some cooler weather and even some white stuff If you get down south, be sure and let me know how you do.

    Tentatively planning to head down Friday and give it a shot at some of the IHAP and public area's down in a 45 minutes radius from Osceola roughly. Have a friend coming in from out of state who want's to try some quail hunting so we're going to go stumble around and see if we can't find some dumb ones.

    Just busy, busy, busy.

    I hunt NW Iowa and have seen lots of birds in every spot I've hit so far, high percentage roosters. I've personally shot my limit 3 times out, but this heat has put a damper on things. Of course now its cold today and nobody wants to go.
