  1. Pheasant Hunting
    By PJ Maguire I have said it before, and I will say it again. When there is snow on the ground and the sloughs are frozen, that is the best time of the year to hunt pheasants. This year we have had snow and freezing temps across the Midwest during a good part of pheasant season. So last...
  2. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier We're building on a generation of hunters who grew up with the Conservation Reserve Program. Just about half of that generation has never known a North Dakota landscape that did not have at least a few fields marked with a triangular yellow Private Land Open to Sportsmen or PLOTS...
  3. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier For those of us who like to spend as much time as possible on the outside of the window, October is a sort of early Christmas present. Hunting seasons for just about everything are open, and fall fishing can be just as hot as summer, but without humidity and mosquitoes. While...
  4. Pheasant Hunting
    By PJ Maguire My dad said that last weekend was probably the coldest weather he had ever experienced in the field. Even with all the advancements in cold weather clothing, the Midwest winter chill can get you.. These days my dad owns warmer clothing and knows how to dress for the elements. The...
  5. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier When I look back over pictures of may dad and I hunting pheasants in the 1980s, it's not hard to see from the old prints how special these birds were. In this age of taking thousands of digital photos, even 25 years ago a couple of snap shots were usually reserved only for a...
  6. Pheasant Hunting
    Our Outdoors Nick Simonson The day is finally here - pheasant opener. Many sportsmen have been counting down since about mid-July. And with good reason, it is a time in the field unlike any other. It is a circus of the senses and the experience is remembered not only by birds put in the bag...
  7. Pheasant Hunting
    By Nick Simonson If pheasant opener left you with anything, it was most likely, birds in the freezer. The question is how one goes about eating them. No longer are hunters bound by the code of Cream of Mushroom soup and a crock pot. There are many exciting ways to prepare pheasant recipes and...
  8. Pheasant Hunting
    Our Outdoors Nick Simonson "I love it when a plan comes together," is a cult classic phrase said countless times by actor George Peppard in his role as John "Hannibal" Smith on the 1980s action-adventure series, The A-Team. And who doesn't? When the pieces fall into place for that...
  9. Pheasant Hunting
    Our Outdoors Nick Simonson The countdown on my computer's screen saver says it all: Nine Days, 18 Hours, 32 Minutes, 14 Seconds. To help time lapse for you, that's about sunrise on October 14, 2006 - The opening moment of pheasant season. I expect to find myself walking the five-row...
  10. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier Pheasants are plentiful this fall across the prairie. Deer numbers, too, provide plenty of incentive to get out and enjoy what we may someday refer to as "the good old days." I'm not going to apologize for appreciating the hunting opportunities that should be available this...
  11. Pheasant Hunting
    Our Outdoors Nick Simonson "I can't wait for pheasant season," my buddy commented as he boated his twelfth 10-inch walleye of the evening. "I can," I replied as I swept the hook into another of the lake's small denizens. "What I used to consider the preseason is now the regular season," I...
  12. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier August brings with it an array of predictions and prognostications for the upcoming hunting seasons. It's not much different than gauging the outlook for your local high school or college football team, or trying to guess how well the Vikings will play. It's a process of...
  13. Pheasant Hunting
    Our Outdoors Nick Simonson Safety in the field goes beyond hunter's education, being aware of your surroundings and knowing your target and what lies beyond it. Personal physical well-being in the field is usually an afterthought, and when it is addressed, it is usually too late. The...
  14. Pheasant Hunting
    By Nick Simonson I've never seen such wild roosters in my life. Between the games of family poker, the opening of stockings, and Christmas dinner there was holiday hunting, although it was more like a track meet with shotguns. Closing the door on the pickup truck caused the end of the tree...
  15. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier By now I hope most hunters understand the connection between North Dakota's continued strong pheasant population and the state's 3.4 million acres of Conservation Reserve Program lands. But if not, here's a short refresher on what can happen when you take marginal cropland out...
  16. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier Hunting season doesn't end with the close of deer gun season. In fact, for some hunters the fun is just beginning. While traditional pheasant hunting images resonate strongly with a warm October sun and a crisp morning walk with dew-soaked boots, don't think for a minute that...

  18. Pheasant Hunting
    By PJ McQuire "I could have shot that one." said UND student Nick Anderson, as a Mallard flew over us at the break of dawn, the skyline pink in the East. At that moment there were nine of us sitting on a gravel road just south of Bismarck moments away from the 2004 pheasant season. Ahead of...
  19. Pheasant Hunting
    By Doug Leier I like the emergence of spring on the prairie to an annual visit to Yellowstone National Park - spread over the span of a month. It starts with the arrival of giant Canada geese, already paired off and ready to start nesting when ice and snow are nearly gone. Canada geese are...
