Worst Day of pheasant hunting of the year

I went to Blue Marsh with my uncle. He lives only a couple of miles from the place. Well we hunted hard and only seen two birds and one was a hen.
Hunters everywhere but no birds. We were hunting a corn field. One of us on each side and the dog up the middle. A group of hunters come up over the hill with their dogs and I hear one of them say lets get to the end of the field. So a couple of minuites later a bird flushed and flew straight towards me. I waited a second as he flew closer and one of the idiots shot the bird right before I pulled the trigger. It was flying right at me! I also shot the bird and he fell 10 ft from me. My dog was on it until these idiots two dogs ran up and jumped him and they started to fight over the bird.I immediately called my dog over and the other dogs left. They never picked up the bird. The guy that shot the bird came over and picked up the bird.
Looking back I should have just took the bird just to teach the idiot a lesson. I don't fight over game but next time I think I'm ready to. These type of hunters are so dangerous and a disgrace to the sport. How can someone be so desperate for a bird?

Re: Worst Day of pheasant hunting of the year

hemicuda,
You make a good point, some people have no hunting ethics. If you want to get away from the bulk of them take up Grouse and Woodcock hunting, most who hunt Grouse and Woodcock in our state are good ethical sportsman.
In my era most all the Pheasant hunters were also, some serious teaching needs to be done with some of our modern pheasant hunters, no doubt about it.

Don't ever stoop to their level. There is no amount of birds worth putting yourself in that position. I run into great people through out the year but there are those you wish yoou never encountered.

Think before you share your thoughts!!!

Re: Worst Day of pheasant hunting of the year

Did some thinking on this last night. I think my big mistake was hunting on a Saturday not so much where we hunted.

Re: Worst Day of pheasant hunting of the year

I no longer hunt saturdays or the first day of Pheasant season on the Gamelands. Just a decision I came to when one of my dogs almost got shot by some guy goofing off about 5-6 years ago. I now hunt the weekdays and stick to the fringes for the most part. I've had some good luck this season with this plan.

Saturdays are a great day for grouse or archery, but I understand not everybody can get after the ditch chickens during the week. Don't let this incident discourage you from going out when you can.

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

Re: Worst Day of pheasant hunting of the year

I've been out a lot this year. I got 12 birds. I was not desperate for a bird. The thing that made me upset was the fact that the guy shot towards me and then his dogs attacked my dog when he went to retrieve the bird.
Luckly I can get out a lot during the week since I work about 5 miles from the local game lands. The hunters I encounter during the week at the game lands I normally hunt are nothing like the guys I encountered yesterday.

angus,
Got to admit, I am the same. No need to Pheasant hunt on the 1st Saturday
I keep to the Grouse woods just to stay away from that crowd.
