    I may be thin skinned, but I definitely am dense, as I cannot for my life follow your posts...but we're fellow pheasant hunters, so we'll tip our whisky cups to the ringneck pheasant!

    If you grab the quote you are responding to, as I did in this case, it just becomes clear to all reading this who or what you are responding to...that's all I was asking earlier when I asked if you were talking to someone in particular...not sure how just wanting to follow your train of thought makes me thin skinned....but like I said, whiskey toast to the pheasant, and two for the farmers!

    Moedogee, are you seeing any pheasants as you are out driving the backroads? Let's get something concrete accomplished here...you're there at ground zero...seeing any chicks? I got a report from a farmer yesterday, and he said the broods he is seeing are pretty large, but the chicks are still small, suggesting later hatches...

    Although crops got a VERY late start, they are closing the gap each week to the norm. If weather holds, I believe we will end up close to normal harvest dates.

    Field Crops Report: Corn condition rated 2 percent very poor, 6 poor, 28 fair, 45 good, and 19 excellent. Corn silking was 85 percent, behind 98 last year and 96 for the five-year average. Dough was 25 percent, well behind 69 last year and 51 average. Dented was 1 percent, behind 10 last year, and near 5 average.
    Soybean condition rated 2 percent very poor, 8 poor, 37 fair, 40 good, and 13 excellent. Soybeans blooming was 83 percent, behind 96 last year and 94 average. Setting pods was 47 percent, well behind 79 last year and 76 average.

    Bob: Your report is for Illinois, correct? The SD AG report reads far different...
