Pheasant transport crates

Does anyone have plans or know where to find plans on-line for a pheasant transport crate? I 'd like to make my own instead of purchasing those plastic crates for sale on several websites.

Thank you.

You may want to reconsider building wooden crates, they are heavy and even heavier with birds in them. We used to have all wooded crates at my club. We got rid if them and bought good plastic ones. I also handled thousands of wooden wooden crates when I stocked pheasants for the PGC. I much prefer plastic as an improvement.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Going to stock 20-25 birds twice a year on my own property. I can handle the weight. Probably will go from back of truck to back of ATV then to the fields.

I would reduce the number of birds released at one time. Your bag limit will still be two birds a day unless you have a preserve license and they disappear quickly by moving away or being eaten.

Yep, just because you put them out doesn't mean you can shoot as many as you want to nor does it mean you can shoot hens in no hen management units without a regulated hunting ground permit. My club puts out at least 300 birds a year, pheasants, chukar and bob white quail. You would think we would have birds everywhere because we have thick woods, tree lines and Crep grasses. We may have a couple of birds that last a few months and the occasional brood of pheasants. It isn't worth putting them out and not hunting them the same day because they disappear.

sorry, i just cant see the sense in taking perfectly good birds and stocking them just to fill them with pellets, then eat them. why not just eat them instead of blasting them for "sport".


i go to a preserve and i understand why people go there, but if i was raising them for personal use and not a club or preserve, i would just kill them cleanly and prepare them for the table with out BB's in them, that i would have to take out.


best of luck, have a lot of fun.
