    Anyone else make it out chasing birds, yet? I went out quick this afternoon, and managed a couple on public ground. I'm pretty lucky to have a solid dog to keep me on them.[​IMG]

    Shot 1 opening day. Haven't been back out, but a bunch more corn out now, so this weekend should be much better.

    My hunting started with Pheasants as a kid. My grandpa, uncles, brother and dad all got together to chase them. We always came home with birds with an occasional quail too. Was a ton of fun. Feels weird even seeing one now. I've been hearing them once and a while from my tree stand, but they are few and far between, especially where I hunted as a kid in Madison county.

    Same here, it was the only thing Dad hunted. He was tapering off, as he told stories of “the good old days” when he could limit out walking a hundred yards of fence or so. We killed lots of pheasants together, never deer hunted with each other, though.
