Was anyone else on here picked in the prarie chicken lottery. First time picked in the 3 years of applying. I was one of the 180 something licenses.

I've got a license 809A. Never done it. Clue me in. Have been looking forward to getting a license for three years, now that I have one I would like to know the secrets. I use an English Setter and a Browning Auto.

Hunt them the EXACT opposite of everything you know and do for Pheasants and you'll be fine. (Wind at your back) Chickens use their eyes more than any of their other senses and the seemed to always be facing into the wind. Hunt short grasses (areas you wouldn't even consider for Pheasants, etc.) near known Booming Grounds and be ready, when you find one, you find more! Once you flush them, don't even bother trying to chase them, they'll fly 1/2 to 1 mile before coming down. We got a few Pheasants while we were Chicken hunting also, so that is a nice bonus. Do your scouting near dark, what may look like a flock of Black Birds off in the distance, may just be a pile of Chickens!

Enjoy the hunt and give us the updates when you get back!

You can pass shoot them flying into grain fields too. Common method in KS, heard of a few in MN making this work too. This method does require scouting.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
