Admittedly, I’m usually one of the last ones out on first ice, but that fact has rarely bothered me as the habitat holding pheasants often sees less pressure as a result of the draw that early ice has. However, when I do head out, there’s one tool I’m never without. In fact, after November, I rarely walk around the block without them.
