The Missouri Sportsman’s Club brought out a group of hunters to get in some early season upland bird hunting. The weather was not ideal, patches of mist and rain driven by some strong west winds made for tough conditions and a switch to hunting primarily pheasant with a few chukar and quail. Brett Goldschmidt served up some BBQ chicken and fixin’s while the hunters did some warm up on clay pigeons. Brett held a quick safety meeting before dividing up into five groups and spreading out to the fields. Lots of nice pheasant rises and a really nice quail covey rise caught on camera. Lousy weather but still a good time in the field and in the clubhouse.
