I've got to decide in the next few days, if I will be making a trip to the panhandle for pheasant. I know better than to expect large numbers, but just seeing if they have made any type of rebound.

Well, last trip to the area for pheasants was in 2009.
So I think I'm going to go, even if the bird numbers aren't what I would like them to be.

Your probably right, but were already pushing the time frame with a 9 hour drive each way. My husband has to be back at work that Monday morning, or I would consider it.

I was up near Plainview this past weekend and saw more pheasant and quail than I anticipated. Lots of water, cover and food. We are laying off for one more year and let them multiply.

Good to hear, still have relatives in the Plainview & Petersburg area who have farmed since the 1940's. Good reason to go for a visit.

I've heard rain has been spotty. Should be better hunting than it has been, which is zilch.
I think we will wait one more year unless our guy up there says to come on up.

What birds are there I would say let them go and build the numbers back up. I know there are greedy hard heads that will go ahead and bust what few birds there are. They just hurt the chances for stronger numbers for next year. I'm glad my landowners believe in sound game management

Kindall, Try the Olton Chamber Pheasant hunt just west of Plainview. They always seem to have birds serve a great breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday and furnish guides on their hunts. You are more than welcome to join my party or hunt in another group of hunters. Just tell Teresa that you wish to hunt with the McLeod party. Been there five years running and have never been disappointed in the hunt.
