Pheasants Fear Me

Yeah right! That is why they run and/or fly when a car door opens 1000 yards away.

Let's be honest. Seasoned hunters are still dumb. We can have amber shooting glasses, a $5000 or better over and under, $300 boots, the correct jacket, #5 copper shot and two dogs of high intelligence.

Then still drive up too close to the field; come to a noisy halt; open and slam at least two truck doors.

That puts the fear into the pheasants and results in making your hunt more difficult, even when the state report talks of best year ever. It is so nice for you to give them that extra advantage.

Want to hunt wild birds? Be smart. Walk farther, don't talk, be quiet, use the wind and control you dog. But above all else, close car doors quietly. Make your guide happy and his job easier.
