Yep. So far we've gotten 8 birds between three of us. My buddy got his limit on the opener, my son and I shot 1 each. My buddy and I went out last Tuesday and we each got our limits. I went out two days by myself but didn't get anything on those days. Plan is to head out each of the remaining three days this week right after work, since they're due to stock between tomorrow and Friday. I should hit it one of those days and be on to some more birds. Saturday morning though is already set for squirrel hunting with me and my boy.

So far I have had six youth out, had 65 pheasants up in front of them (some not in range though) and they harvested six of them. It seems that the youth get a lot of bad ammo that came out without any bbs in them.

There have also been 19 adult hunters that we, the dog and I, have had 101 pheasants up for (once again not all were in range). The adult hunters have harvested 30 of those pheasants they got shooting at.

So far I have been out every day. I will be guiding for three days of veteran hunts over the next two weeks, have at least two more youth to get out and it is hard to tell how many more adults.

It has been a good season so far but the roosters sure are hard to get in the air. Most of them are running for hundreds of yards then flushing well out of range. My harvest rate is running a little over 73% roosters right now.
