Grouse and partridge open this Saturday. Starting to see a lot of Hungarian Partridge but the young ones are definitely very small. Most of the sharptail grouse I am seeing are full-size now. I don’t shoot too many sharptails but I like hunting Huns. Unless I find some fully grown ones they will get a pass for a few weeks.

I’m jealous of your upland opportunities! Have often thought I’d be much happier and sleep a lot more if I was bitten by the upland bug and not the waterfowl bug.

You've not walked 5 miles for a shot opportunity and missed yet. Around here you'd jump em getting out of the truck in 1975....lol.
Modern farming sort of eliminated the bugs they eat and it got harder and harder. I've not seen a wild pheasant in years. They exist I hear them but seeing one is work.
I could break you of any desire to hunt upland game in a week.
Darren aka dickweed kept records. We shot 2.35 pheasants per hour back in 1980.

I’ve hunted the southeastern bobwhite my whole life. Watched them go from booming in the 90s on our place to nearly extinct the past 20 years, to maybe making a comeback now. We quit shooting them. Just work our dogs now. I don’t mind the walking (but sure makes you appreciate a horseback ride). I envy PC’s variety available to chase.

I wish we had quail and Huns here in Pa.. It would be a blast to chase after them, and they are good eating too......
