I'm a newer upland hunter and headed back to the Whites in the morn. Been out last 3 weekends and have only seen about 6 birds and shot 0. I know for a fact last week (when we saw birds) we were over 3000ft. I was thinking most birds should have molted by now, am I correct? Anyone esle have any advice besides TONS of leg work. Have no dog so its all on me. I've been trying to hunt the edges of open rocky fields with Willow or Alder thickets on the borders and tyring to flush them from there. Any better suggestions?
