    Well, I went to Chadron on March 30 and came back on the 5th. I saw tons of birds, could easily have killed with a shotgun, and had only one shot with the bow.

    My comments are easy, get in shape, get in shape, and get in shape. At least for the Pine Ridge area. Everywhere you look is a steep hill that you've got to climb in a hurry and I was a hurting unit during that hunt. I noticed that the hens called a lot less out there than they do here and that the toms did a lot of yelping. That might have been due to when I was there as the flocks were starting to break up during that time. The other thing I noticed on the Merriams is that they are always on the move and they move fast. It's kinda hard to describe how much they travel and how quickly they cover ground.

    I plan to go back to Chadron Thursday night, hunt Friday and Saturday and see if the birds will work to the call now or not, they sure didn't work to the call a couple of weeks ago.
