How are the pheasant numbers looking for this year in the panhandle and south plains regions? I had heard that numbers were pretty bad up north because of the spring floods followed by a hot, dry summer.

Had friends down for a Labor Day dove shoot from the Hale Center / Petersburg / Floydada area. They farm about 10K acres spread across 3 counties and they aren't seeing much. Quail are mediocre and pheasants below that. Got another friend up there that's a crop duster. His business picks up around now and if there are any birds around he'll know where they are. I'll post up whenever I get a report from him.

The years that the crop dusters have to remove pheasant bodies from the applicator nozzles...those are amazing hunting years...

Our guy in the Panhandle says cover and forage are very good and birds are doing well.
