Chickens, Sharpies and Rattlesnakes
Pheasants Forever’s marketing department will send the North American Grouse Partnership’s first publication in three years to the printer later this week. It’s all part of Pheasants Forever’s role as a member of the Prairie Grouse Partners. We are providing public relations and marketing assistance to support our common conservation interest: restoring prairie habitat. The NAGP will pay all the printing and mailing bills, while Pheasants Forever has provided the elbow grease to produce this publication. Most of that elbow grease has come from Rosalie Wolff, Pheasants Forever’s Graphic Artist; who has designed a fantastic looking publication.
If you are interested in prairie chickens, sharp-tailed grouse, or sage grouse, there is still time for you to add your name to the North American Grouse Partnership’s roster of members to receive this new publication. In fact, through this special link you’ll receive the special discounted price for Pheasants Forever & Quail Forever members.
Bob’s Bird Hunting Report: Ft. Pierre National Grasslands, South Dakota
Last week, I enjoyed a fantastic couple of days hunting the wide open spaces of SoDak’s Fort Pierre Grasslands. While I have had two other opportunities to bag my first prairie chicken, this was my first dedicated trip focused on the bird. Long story short, a September trip to Fort Pierre will be an annual pilgrimage for this hunter. In three days of hunting, I saw hundreds of chickens, sharpies and pheasants. It was a bird hunter’s smorgasbord. I did indeed bag my first greater prairie chicken (five of them actually) and added three sharpies as well. One word of caution about these western grasslands: be prepared for bird dog encounters with rattlesnakes, porcupines, skunks, and coyotes.
