Diane and I spent most of this week in ND visiting some of her family. We picked up her Mom in Mandan and took her with us to her sister, Karen and brother-in-law, Gordon’s home. Gordon and I spent the most part of the next four days hunting pheasants while the gals worked on some sewing projects. Gordon has hunting access to a number of properties and they all had birds. It was just the two of us hunting and without a dog, it was a little challenging. You hit some, miss some and lost some. It was a great time and wonderful weather for doing a lot of walking and enjoying western ND.
We returned home on Thursday and on Friday, Jeff and I fished the river the last hour or so before dark. I understand that fishing has been a little slow this past week, particularly during the middle of the day. We were satisfied with the action we had. We kept 5 walleyes, 4 saugers and released at least that many little ones.
