Numbers are down, but pheasants are still there

The pheasant opener last Saturday was decent. The weather warmed up and it was almost balmy as hunters entered the fields to try and harvest some birds.

High winds Saturday did slow success a bit. Bird numbers are decent, even though they are not what they were a year ago. There are also still quite a few crops in the fields. Harvest has begun with the beans being the first to come out. Wet weather has held up that harvest. Very little corn is out and some of the corn is still pretty green. A killing frost would be ideal to help the corn dry down a lot quicker.
