Re: Update on 2014 pheasants
Based on crowing count numbers this spring, we are down 50% from last year. The winter was pretty hard on the birds. This is typical with pheasant populations and the same fluctuations are seen out west. There are still plenty of birds to rebuild the numbers. New CREP incentives will give us more habitat and this time it will have more switchgrass for better winter survival and nesting cover.
