Opening Day Of MN Pheasant Season
The season got off to an iffy start.
We were hunting just west of Hutchinson MN and due to Hwy 7 being closed west of St. Boni I ended up getting to my spot about 40 minutes after the start of the season. It wouldn't have been a big deal except that it was already 60 degrees and I was worried about it getting too warm if I had to hunt too long.
Hunting too long didn't end up being too much of a concern. We got our 2 pheasants in about 30 minutes and got 3 more nice points on the way out of the field.
Hunted the new setter, Tina, and mostly blind Pointer Fergie.
Tina pointed the 2 birds that we took along with a pair of hens.
Fergie actually had a lot of fun and ranged out a little ways and got a nice hen point.
The Garmin Astro did a good job of letting me see where Tina was in the grass without having to use the locate feature on her Innotek Track and Train Collar.
Hunt 1000's of acres of Private Land
