Killin' Roosters, that gave me a chuckle, and in no small measure made me shout out loud, "Hell yeah!" In the wake of my recent trip to the pheasant promise lands of South Dakota, it's important that I take this opportunity to echo a steadfast shared opinion with Jay that there is perhaps no other game bird on the upland journey that's easier to hate than the wily rooster. I likes me some pheasant killin'!
Most birds I hunt with a certain degree of reverence, a tribute to their rarity, survival skills, and apparent ease in eluding me.... but not that shifty underhanded pheasant. On the other hand, they sure make for a damn fun group outing! To all those that enjoy, or maybe even despise pheasants, I hope this short film and photo essay will give you a charge. I'd like to thank all those that participated in the backdrop for this film. To say they are friends would be an understatement. My extended family is probably more appropriate.
