Agree? Disagree? Any other ways or reasons why you think (or don't think) non-resident upland bird hunters are more inclined to travel, even in bad years, than big-game hunters? And I need to add, since this is a gundogs blog, that my generalizations about bird hunters apply mostly to gundog-owning bird hunters. It's just my opinon, but I think dogless bird hunters are much less motivated to travel than those of us who own dogs. In my mind, our dogs are the catalyst for everything we do. But what about you? Are you more inclined to take an out-of-state bird hunting trip or a big-game hunt? Do you have any of either planned this season?
