I had about the same luck as you did Thayer.
I didn't have any luck with the birds. They just were not on the property. Yesterday I was out and decided to start looking for shrooms. I was walking a main trail when I saw a huge morel. Then all of a sudden I seen a bunch more. As I started picking them I hear a putt! Looked over my shoulder as I was on all fours and there about 20 yards away was a head. It went behind a tree and I did a froggy leap next to the tree where the gun was laying up against it. Grabbed the gun and spun around to a sitting position. The bird just kept coming, it got 10 yards away before just walking off. To bad it was a hen. Anyway I found 25 shrooms in a 10 foot round area. Man they were nice and big. Not the freshhest but they will fry just fine. Also found several that were in to bad of condition to eat.
