I got invited to join some guys on a canned pheasant hunt at one of those "sporting clubs" today. It is upper 20's, freezing rain/sleet/fog, and windy. I bet if they make the dogs leave their kennels and hit the fields, they'll get arrested for cruelty to animals. But we'll be out there trudging around in the frozen mud. Why do we do it?

I believe in fillet and release!

Larry it sure sounds like a sure cure for cabin fever if I ever heard of one. This time of year there is little if anything to hunt so enjoy enjoy.

The day didn't turn out too bad despite icy roads, freezing rain, strong winds and snow. I couldn't hit anything at the clays range but once out in the field I knocked down 3 pheasants and a Chukar on my own and then shared in 2 more pheasants for a total of 10 birds in 4 hours for our group. It was fun in the field, but I doubt I will do the farm raised bird, private club, canned bird hunt again. Sorry, no pictures. Melody has our camera out in Palm Springs and nobody else brought one. One guy tried to use his camera phone to snap a shot but it was too cold and the thing wouldn't work. :doh: By the time it thawed out in the club house, we already had the birds cleaned, bagged and were ready to leave.

Canned Phrozen birds shooting can take the chill out winter as you know. Sounds like a blast. Birds ought to taste great too. :) :)-
