I hope to go pheasant hunting this weekend, but I'm having a hard time getting people to commit to going with me, and the season will end before too long. I'm really hoping to get to go this weekend. If not, would anyone want to go some weekend before close?

I live in Okemah, but I'm hoping that this weekend's trip will work out. We are supposed to be going to Guymon.

Just came through there last weekend. Didn't see any along the road, but I've heard if one can find a good field, they have a good population. Late season birds can be a chore though. They like to fly way before getting into range.

Steven, Okemah, where I live, is about 25 miles east of Shawnee, straight down I-40. Guymon, is in the panhandle in Texas County.

Dennis, You're supposed to be giving me hope and encouragement! :D Maybe I should take my scoped .22 instead of a 12-ga. Hahahaha!!

I had a friend go out there right after the season opened. They had great sucess.
But no matter where your going, late season roosters can be challenging.
It almost turns into a semi military operation, with setting out blockers, etc. ;D
Actually its pretty fun trying to outsmart a bird with a brain the size of a marble. ;D

I'd love to make it, but the home remodel keeps getting in the way of longer trips. Short day trips are still doable though. I'm not giving them up. ;D

I've never hunted it, but it sounds like a pheasant GT might be in order. ;)

I'm almost scared to go after ring necks. They are the only game species I'm 100% for with the first shot. Love the cackle on liftoff but hate to break the streak if ya wanna call a 6 or 7 bird career a streak.

Normally I'll have a few, but the last two years in a row, we have had floods during nesting season + heavy snows, that partially thawed, then refroze for days on end keeping the birds out of the food sources. The bird count is very low.
The area around Blackwell is normally real good, as some of the farmers will charge for a day lease, but this year they are turning everybody down, hoping for a good hatch in the spring to turn things around.
We went last weekend, with three good dogs, and saw a total of two roosters and no hens.

Is that glass mountain, or the gloss mountains just west of Enid?

The glass mountains and gloss mountains are the same. Nobody can decide which is correct and books refer to them both equally.

I just drove thru the gloss mountains west of Enid twice last weekend on my way to the elk hunt. Its pretty much sagebrush and salt cedar. It just didn't look like pheasant country to me, but what do I know.
They may be there in droves, but its just not what I'm used to seeing. Be interesting to know somebody from that area that could give us a little insite.

I think you're talking about Black Mesa. I have been up there a few times, but never seen pheasant. I've seen pheasant through the panhandle, but only hunted around Jet. This weekend will be the first time to hunt around Guymon. I've caught prairie rattlers around Lake Optima! ;D
