Not much mention of South Dakota, where I have found birds on the usual spots like Ft. Pierre National Grasslands, but also look at waterfowl production areas that most upland hunters ignore. Not a lot of birds, but not a lot of hunters either.

Just curious, those who fear disease transmission from game birds ... they would be purchased from a game bird breeder who meets all requirements for managing NPIP and other pathogens, etc. So, what disease would a commercially-raised game bird be carrying?

It's plenty legal, in fact you can even train with your own game birds or those bought from others here in Oregon - I know, helped re-write the law on that one. And my pigeons are eight generations or more removed from racing stock but thanks for the warning about disease, guys.
