Only 258 more days until open pheasant hunting. Seems like just yesterday I was hunting but I really cant wait until another season comes around. The winter has sort of turned around and it looks like the birds will get another decent winter. Around Redwood Falls and Marshall the birds are doing really good and the snow cover is nonexistant. Start countin them days down!!!

I did some driving in SW minnesota area last week, windom, sprinfield area, and saw tons of birds just along the highways, looks like the bird numbers are on the rise for you guys again.

Should be another good year especially if the weather keeps doing what it has been.

We just got back from spending the weekend in Kansas for our last hunt of the season. There season starts later but runs to the end of January. The area has really come back strong from the last couple years of drought. Can't wait for the next season.

I can hardly wait myself. I have seen and have heard of others seeing quite a few birds this winter. The bad part is many times they are out in the middle of the day, which is not good. That means they are stressed and looking for food when they should be in cover. Hopefully, the snow will stay away for awhile allowing them to build up some fat reserves. We arent out of the woods yet, keep those fingys crossed.....

Well the word on the street is that the birds are doing awesome. the ice storm didn't do too much damage, at least not as much as people were saying.

Here is a pic from one of my stomping grounds in West Central MN, only about 1 hr and 45 minutes from the cities grin.gif

Right place at the right time for that pic. You gotta love seeing all the birds around Minnesota this past year.

I know I can't wait. I'm going to pick up the Springer I purchased next Friday. It's going to be a long summer of working with him, but the first bird I get over him will be worth it. How many days until opener? grin.gif

I can't wait for next season either. My pup was pretty young last year and she couldn't quite figure it out. She has been down in Mississippi training and will all ready to hunt next year. I am getting my pheasant fix in a couple weeks when I go to the game farm.

I think I saw pretty much the same thing in LuciandTim's

pictures this weekend west of pipestone this weekend. I couldnt believe the number of birds we saw all at the same time in the same spots. The thing was we saw this in more the one field! And we werent even on gravel, just cruisin down the highway.

Man I can't wait, was out in the garage putting the icefishing stuff away before, looked up at the wall, saw all my tail feathers and a few pelts from roosters hanging on the wall, really a rough time out there, ice fishing was done and I had a longing to go out rooster hunting, then to add insult to injury a flock of geese came over the garage well with in range of some BBB, man spring is rough.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      67 degrees today in big bay. No fish today for me.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      I am with you. Can’t seem to find any walleye

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
