Re: Pheasant hunting tips?
I to am finding more birds in the thickets and woods. i have put up a couple in the fields, but most run out of range with my pup chasing them and then they flush giving no shot. Fence rows, small thick woody areas, and woods have produced a lot of birds and provided solid points, which leads to good shots.
Next time out go where you would not normally go. Thick stuff on the fridges of the hunting land. Get your dog into the brush and you may have some better luck.
Running birds and young pointing dogs are a challenge. I am on my first pointing dog which has presented some issues this season.
If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.
