What are the counts??? MN and IA are both up.... Unless you count them against the long term average. SD? Kristi pulled the plug on the brood count, everyone knows that. Well should you even go? What do the numbers say? I personally say I will just go, regardless of any info, because it's what I like to do. If there's a stack of birds or very few, it doesn't matter to me. I've not been in the sport very long, but can anything replace a bird dog working cover and flushing a game bird? I will do whatever I can to promote upland hunting, but number one, I will go regardless of any prediction/brood count/etc.
