Well you will shoot the most while the pups are young and dumb. That said my uncle went out 2 weeks ago and said the pups aren't out yet. About the middle of June is when most of the pups are running around.

Thanks... I am starting to think I should make my fall trip for 2012 into a early summer trip for 2013...

I've been going every year for the last 20 years.

I like early June. the pups are out. The weather is nice. There has not yet been a lot of hunting pressure.

I have been in July - 107 degrees - miserable.

We are headed out there this summer. Never PD hunted before but have hunted for 50 years. (I started petty young)LOL
Anyway how is this done? Do you have to have an outfitter to hunt the critters?? Are there state lands to hunt? How do you find the towns??

thanks guys
