Default Mid-November in South Dakota

Day 1, around 60 degrees; Maddie, Tim, Phil, Penny and Pete...



Day 2, high of 9 with sideways snow most of the day; Penny, Pete, Randy, Maddie, Jamie, Tom, Yeager and Phil...



Lots of standing crops in the fields, and LOTS of standing water. We found birds but it weren't easy!

A great example of life on the prairie. Enjoy your hunt...and friends.

Phil,
Those are such great pictures, what a difference a day makes. Is that an older side by side your using? I would like to take a couple of friends out there hunting, I am trying to figure out what gun to take. Garry Gordon just posted in another thread some info on pheasant hunting in general. I am learning a lot in here.

Ed....take the two guns that fit you and you shoot best! Good field loads in 4&5 shot. Always gun the leading edge...that would be the head of a rooster. Above all else...have a great time. I head to Kansas one week from Friday...(-: XE-16 and DHE-16 Both are chokes mod and tight full. A third gun may also come, Fox CE-16 with a little less choke and some 6 shot. Both the land owner/farmers I called this past week tell me of large population of wild quail this year,, sweet! Right now the weather looks good for our week hunting. SXS Ohio

Thanks Ed. The gun is my 16ga Fox A grade; the last day I carried my 16ga Fox Sterlingworth ejector. I've found that 1oz. of #6's works fine for me on wild pheasants, though I've used #5's at times too. If you hit 'em either will do the job. I prefer 7-1/2's for quail.

Phil,
I just purchased a 16 gauge fox sterlingworth with 28" barrels, I believe its improved cylinder and improved modified chokes. The shells I am using are RST falcon lite under load on the box it says 7/8. The fox is a philadelphia era gun, so would you shoot the 1 oz. load through that gun also? I just asked the guy at fieldsport where I bought the R.S.T. shells to get me the lightest load they had. I apologize for all the questions I have but I have not hunted in so long I don't know a lot about guns. I have been using the 28" barreled fox for grouse and woodcock and recently it worked well on planted pheasants. I also have a parker vh? with 26" barrels and similar chokes, that gun has been refinished and is almost to nice to hunt with. I am guessing a 28 inch to 30 inch long barreled gun would be best with tighter chokes for that type of pheasant hunting out west then. It would just seem to give me another reason to get that one more gun I need for my recent addiction Thanks again for everyones input in this forum.
