This was a great pheasant season. Limits were taken most every day. If not plenty of opportunities were provided. Killed mostly young birds from a very late hatch due to summer rains. Real tough sharpie and hun hunting this year on our leases. Heard good reports from only a few ranches. I am getting lots of interest in hunting for next season and am trying to find another guide to cover that. Heading to South Texas for another winter next week.

Been the hottest, driest start to bird season that I have ever seen here in Montana. Lots of heavy, green cover for the birds to hide in. We have had a couple of good days but for the most part the hunting got tough after 10 am. Seeing decent numbers of birds now but will know the whole story after things cool down some.   We are currently booked up for the 2013 season but still feel free to call or email for info in case of cancellation or for next year. Thanks

Fishing so far has been excellent on Depuy’s, Armstrong and Nelson Spring Creeks. Great hatches of bugs and nice fish. The Yellowstone has been feeling the effects of the heat and the fish have been lethargic. They are eating hoppers though and the forecast is for cooler weather so things are looking up.   Conditions for the hatch this year for upland birds is looking real good. We will know more in a couple of weeks when the dog trainers get out in the field and let us know what they are seeing.

Cold spring so far here in Montana. No danger to the hatch yet. Hope it gets warm and dry for the young birds when they are born. Texas is looking pretty bad for now. All it has to do is rain in South Texas and they will start laying eggs. We left a lot of mature birds in good shape at the end of the season.
