Here in Nebraska, our state regs allow upland game hunting from 1/2 hr before sunrise to sunset. I used to be one of the guys that had to get out there at O-dark-thirty to roust the birds out of their roost. I must have mellowed a bit after 40 years of p-bird hunting, because I have changed to a more leisurely timetable and now try to get out no earlier than 10 am and actually prefer the hours of 11 am to about 3, and have found I often do better at those times. South Dakota opens at noon the first two weeks and then goes to 10 am which seems to work out great with me. Main advantages I see is birds are not chased off the roost, have time to go out and feed unmolested and I feel fewer hens are mistakenly shot. How does everybody feel about this and what time do you like to hunt?
