Pheasant Releases to Increase

The PGC has announced at the annual pheasant working group meeting on March 31st that pheasant releases will go back to 200,000 birds a year in the fall of 2012. They also plan to increase the number of in season stockings from currently 2 to three or four. This will also allow the return of more public access farms getting birds again. Good move PGC

That there is the best news. Been many years since I went out for Pheasant, but missed hunting those private farms for em. Wall to wall gameland hunting isn't all that fun...... nor was taking a few pellets to my chest the last time I partook.

Re: Pheasant Releases to Increase

I've been hoping for that for about 12 years now... But hoping ain't paying the bills...

The pheasant plan called for increase to 200,000 once the license increase came along with a pheasant stamp....

I would rather see a more dedicated effort to the wild pheasant restoration effort than this. The put and take is a money hole....

Anyone with dogs knows full well the increases in feed prices. Anyone who eats knows even better what groceries are costing.... And I'm not a game farm manager but I have a sneaking suspicion that 200,000 birds are going to eat an awful lot more than 100,000; and delivering them more times and more places is going to cost a bit more as well...

Re: Pheasant Releases to Increase

The PGC made one of it's poorest financial decisions when they cut back on pheasants. They saved very little money. I always thought they thought it would upset hunters to the point they would demand a license increase. Didn't happen.

My thinking now is that with some money coming in from gas leases, that frees up a bit for more pheasants. Either get in the pheasant raising business so it's cost effective or get out.

Would still like to see pheasant and turkey stamps.

Bite your tongue. You mean another possible benefit of those horrid gas drillers ?

You think I'm against gas drilling?
