Pheasant stocking Map Yet?

I was on the PGC website for the antlerless application info and checked-out some new stuff. I saw the pheasant allocations but didn't see that the pinked-in pheasant stocking areas were active yet.
Is that so, or am I missing something. I know it's many months early yet. Just wondering.

I haven't seen any numbers assigned for the regions or counties yet. It is early yet. I would expect it sometime in late August or early September.

I'm not sure when that information will come
out, but it should be a great year for pheasant hunting. I believe there was a decrease in the overall number of pheasants stocked last season. This season I heard the pheasant stocking numbers are to return back to around what they had been in the few seasons prior to last year. The increase should lead to excellent hunting opportunities.

I definitely noticed a difference in the stocking last year versus years past. Unless you showed up right after the truck pulled out, you pretty much weren't seeing birds. Yeah yeah I know if I had a dog I would have. Well Unfortunately my dog isn't trained to hunt so I go alone.

I read they upped the ## by 50 k, which sounds great on the surface, but they also made hens legal in most areas. It used to be just up north, then they made it 5C and 5D for a number of years now...it is not going to be the same hunting experience if they are stocking hens in traditional cockbird only hunting areas. Not nearly the same challenge and chase.



I haven't seen any allocation chart for 2018 but I am definitely worried. Lot of bonehead changes recently.

As someone who hunted an area that you could shoot hens, im glad they changed the stocking allocations. Sure it was great for the rooster only areas, but it sucked seeing 70-80% hens in the either areas.

On top of that it was a waste to put any hens in the rooster areas. But it was done to meet quotas.
