A South Dakota Blizzard of Birds!

My dad only hunts once a year and it is our annual pheasant hunt in South Dakota. He lives for it. This year we went with some neighbors, my Uncle Dan and My cousin Jordan from Oklahoma. It was quite the occasion. Here are some pictures.

Day one was 28 degrees with snow and sixty mile an hour winds. The birds held like a puckered up butt hole. It was great the dogs had some great points.

Day two was 28 degrees snow and thirty mile an hour winds.

Day three was 24 degrees, breezy, with deep drifts.

We got lots of pheasants and even shot a handful of Sharpies. I even shot my first Prairie Chicken.

Burrrrrrrrrrrr. But you were still cahsing birds!

Pheasants are for killing...good thing you put them out of their freezing missery!

Some day you'll see the true light and become a quail hunter!

Burrrrrrr... is right.

Shawn... Kansas from your pics looked a little warmer than South Dakota. I'm just waiting for the invite, then I will become a quail addict like you.

how about a Jan trip? Your permit would be good for next Fall as well!


Looks like Uncle Rod had fun too!

I don't believe I've every pictured tight holding birdings with quite that imagry (i.e puckered up . . .). Looks like you put the WWF smackdown on some roosters- the birds we love to hate (or hate to love,which is it?) Good job!
