So who's going Prairie Chicken hunting this weekend in ND? I'm skipping the pheasant opener to try and get one of these buggers...hopefully I can get it done on Saturday so I can try some pheasant Sunday. I've been scouting around for a little while and seeing only grouse.

Wow, what a tough weekend. Hunted hard for two days in the rain and didn't even get to pull the trigger. Saw 4 groups with about 30 birds each as well as a dozen singles...I'm sure most were grouse. Couldn't get within 100 yards of any of them, however. They were all in the real short grass and could see me coming from a long ways off.

Does anyone happen to know if prairie chicken "cackle" like grouse when they get up?

This is the second time I've been drawn for the tag and I still don't have one. The first time I hunted four days out of the 8 day season, and this year will be about the same. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement.

Anyone have anything to help me out!?! :-?
