thank you

well for starters this is my first post, im glad i found this forum. i want to say thank you to all the pheseant hunters ive ran into saturday and today. ive never tried hunting pheseant im a big archery hunter and i love hunting rabbits i figured id try my hand at pheseant and after spenting 6 hours pushing through feilds by myself i met a hunter with a brittany who was more than happy to let me tag along with him and his dog. i didnt get any birds but i missed 3 and saw at least 6 flush in about 2 hours i also got to see him point a rabbit i was to close to want to shoot it i was just excited to see how the dog worked. i met a few hunter with dogs this afternoon with the same results. no birds but i had a blast watching the dogs and missing. i figured id post and say thanks because most ppl from what i hear are more than happy to let people hunt with them and there dogs im glad to see there are people like this around who arent greedy. thanks i look forward to possibly hunting with some of you in the future.

Re: thank you

Well...I think you're hooked for life! I used to do some archery hunting and still think it's great, but if I have to choose between upland hunting behind a good bird dog and the bow, the bird hunting wins every time.
Your thanks should really also go to our Game Commission, they understand what small game hunting means to the future of hunting in general. Very good first Post!

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

Bird hunting wins every time for me as well. I know the rut is on, but I can't wait to chase some grouse this weekend!

Re: thank you

Given the choice between deer, bear, turkey, or upland hunting over a good pointing dog, I'd take the bird hunting anytime! Better than sex!! But then again at my age many things are! Glad you're having fun!

Re: thank you

Lots and lots of walking and be prepared to get your legs tore up because of green briers!!! I asked the same question a few weeks ago. With the advice i was given just this past Saturday me and my 2 buddies finally flushed birds! We focused on fields that were pretty thick and just spread out about 10 yards from each other and worked a zig-zag patter. What I noticed is if you see the grass move about 5 yards in front of you be ready!!! Saturday we got 5 birds and flushed 12! Went out yesterday with just one of my buddies and we flushed 6 and only got 1! We were there more for him but he couldn't get the shots off. The bird we got I ended up taking because it flushed right in front of me even though I wait for him to take the shot! Now once we kinda know what type of "habitat" they'll be in we tend to stay in those areas! Its kinda funny we went out 4 time before Saturday and did not get one single flush. I think we were just looking in the wrong areas! The rush you get from flushing birds is so exciting... I know i'm hooked and just want to get back out there!!! I would like to say thank you to all the guys who gave me advice!
