Re: Game bird stocking
In thw fall, we stock pheasants on a several private farms for our hunt club. We always seem to have a handful of cockbirds make thru at least until spring. One morning while Spring gobbler hunting I saw 5 of them, with the biggest rooster crowing like crazy, unfortunately we never stock hens (though I've pleaded for it.) I have excellent cover/food on my property (near Beltzville) and have thought of getting the Surrogator ro release pheasants at 5 weeks old like they suggest. I realize survial rates of stocked birds is really low but I thought if I could get a few to survive and breed, who knows I met get a few "wild" pheasants around.
