Just found out a couple weeks ago that I will be spending my 4-day MEA weekend (Oct. 19-22) at school for a search and rescue class. Going to miss the once-a-year trip with dad and uncles to SD for some great ringneck hunting. Just got into pheasant hunting about 3 yrs. ago and I absolutely love it. We hunt with one german short-hair and one german wire-hair. I'm gonna miss seeing those points and hearing that hawk screech. Good luck to anyone heading out that way, shoot a few for me!

Consider yourself lucky that you're only missing four days of the season. I just ruptured my Achille's tendon (completely torn apart) and I'm out for the entire season, NO pheasants, NO grouse, NO whitetails. This just sucks, I've got three excellent well trailed dogs I've been working on all summer. They won't even see a single bird this year. Hopefully I might be walking without crutches by Christmas. Leave some birds for next year!

I think you can get a permit from the DNR to hunt off a wheeler if you want. I know of a guy who was handicapped and he had a dog in to be trained from a trainer I know, to work from both his handicap van and off a wheeler. This dog quartered close to the wheeler for pheasant and grouse and he posted fields while sitting in the van on pheasant drives, the dog sat at heel outside. I thought the trainer told me he got an exemption to be able to shoot from a vehicle...

Good luck!

Ken

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
