Welcome to the forum!! You are correct some of us were regulars on the NAHC forum before it went down the drain. Gauge and myself were both regulars. I used to post in the CA section more than anything as I was stationed out there.
Glad you could make it and hope u stick around. With dove season about to start it alm off thugs will be picking up around here.
I only got back into duck hunting last year. The quail and pheasant are really poor right now, so my bird dog and I just go out for exercise mostly.
I'm courious how this spring was for the hatch. It should have been pretty good for the areas that didn't get the widespread hail right at nesting time.
I flushed a couple of hen pheasant while driving the tractor out to the field last night.
The grasshopper are horrible. With the weather forecast, I'm afraid to put in any food plots. The weather is scheduled to stay hot, and I kid you not, there are 2-3 grasshoppers per square foot of ground. I've never seen it like this.
So for now, keep working ground, and hoping for the best.
I will be planting the food plot for archery this weekend though. Fingers crossed. :-\
