Iím working up in Iowa and Idaho this week. Iíve been hearing some stories from my customers about the awesome pheasant hunting and hear the Quail are coming back in Iowa. I have some invites to come back this fall to hunt some private land. Thatís a long way to drive with dogs. The people are great in the heartland. Have any of you hunted this part of the country? The deer up here look like cows.
I grew up in Iowa, hunted a lot near Adair on our farm West of Des Moines about 40 minutes. We would bump a covey of quail every year it seemed, no more no less, and the pheasant hunting was great. I still drive up every year I can and hunt a few days on the farm with my dad, then stop off in Kansas to duck hunt a few days and loop home. It's a leisurely 1 day drive up, great for a 4 or 5 day trip.
