October Setters

    I would say that overall there is a good correlation compared to the cycle. Numbers of birds we find hunting that fall, not so perfect. Sometimes, but I wouldn’t expect a 50% increase in the drumming count to necessarily mean 50% more birds in the covers. Sometimes, but there have been plenty of years where we expected great things based on the counts and it wasn’t any better or was maybe worse than the previous year.
