Who Needs the Mid-West!

Well maybe Pa. isn't quite the Mid-West but it still can offer you a great pheasant hunting experience!But unlike the ole days you will have to do a lot more homework.My son and I started our pheasant season like many, on State land.It was crowded but still enjoyable!
Then it was off to "pheasant camp" in a distant part of the state!What a great time,it brought back many memories!This was not on SGL's or Co-Op's,but farms that we made contact with during the summer.At times I thought it was 1970 again.I am not big on taking pictures,but luckily my son took some.
Below are a few pictures of our hunt!The Rooster is coming out to get grit-remember those days!A great hunt and the season is still young!






It's breeding,training...and something unknown.

Re: Who Needs the Mid-West!

Hey, that looks like the field behind my house. These guys from Jersey are nothing but trouble

But then you gotta wonder about a guy who hunts with a springer

That was the field behind your house...the birds felt safe because of your shooting ability!

This area is not in your part of the state,far from any WPRA.

It's breeding,training...and something unknown.

Re: Who Needs the Mid-West!

Pretty cool. I didn't think we had any wild pheasants left other than the WPRA's.

The hawks are killing everything.

As far as I'm concerned,hunting is nothing without a dog to share it with.

If you were to drive through the area you would see why.The amount of cover jumps out at you.Even people with small homes and only an acre or two leave their backyards in cover.The local population are passionate about their birds and very tight lipped,they want nothing to do with any WPRA.
Some large farms have been totally converted to habitat and they get a lot of people to pitch in.Needless to say,I would love to buy a few acres in that area and add to the habitat!
