I also hunted Ladd Marsh on Sunday, after hunting Brownlee Saturday, and saw eight roosters and twice as many hens. Might be worth a try for the Pheasant opener. Also, got into some quail, which held much better then those Chukar. Ladd Marsh is a very well managed area and was surprised how much the ODFW has put into it. There were some hunters out there but it was not overly crowded. Although, that could change for the Pheasant opener. Also, I hunted at Irragon, spelling?, last year and got some Pheasant and Quail. The ODFW puts out Pheasants to supplement the population for the opener. This might be worth some effort. A friend of mine hunted Murders Creek last year and got into some Quail but the cover is really heavy. Any Quail hunting areas would be very helpful, Thanks.
