I'm feeling fortunate! Was up in NCPA, Sproul SF over the weekend. One hunter with one GSP. Friday morning we hunted 3.5hrs and had nine flushes. Saturday morning we hunted 3 hrs and had 7 flushes. Two birds in the bag. Also heard a fair amount of drumming over the weekend. Seems to be pockets of birds.
I agree bird counts are down from prior years.
