Want to know if anyone has experience or first hand knowledge of pheasant hunting at Mendota. My best friend has a ressie, but the drive is 3.5 hours and I don't want to waste a kitchen pass for poor hunting. Normally I would sweat line at The Lodge, but I can't take the time off work this year. My other option is to hunt monday at The Lodge, or if lucky in the draw at LDC. Any opinions?
