Our annual North Dakota pheasant hunt last year, sub-zero temps and blowing snow. Not so fun!

With the nice weather, the birds were not bunched up in shelter belts and were pretty evenly spread over the country. This made for nice full day hunts to get our limit of birds.

      Hunted both North and South Dakota. I have hunted in T shirts one day and a front moves in your hunting in blowing snow the next.
