Dobsonknob, thanks for the post. Very, very interesting title for your post.
As a resident of CS WPRA with 4 english setters, I have been keenly interested in the the Pheasant Restoration Project.
Your posting appears to give final relief to training dogs issue in the WPRA's
The program was sold as re-establishing a huntable pheasant population. A more correct title for the program should have been, "A Pheasant Research Project". If you read the program details the vast majority of items are research related.
With the exception to the Youth Pheasant Hunts/flushing survey/crowing count within the ever shrinking CS WPRA boundary it appears that that the handwriting many on Huntingpa site forcast some years ago happened.
I can't wait for Dr Klingers final report. Hopefully, permitting dog training for 6 months a year did not have an impact on the program being more successful.
In year 6, the program achieved the stated goal of 6 hens per square mile. However, no hunting but the research efforts kicked into high gear..
PS- Let the Pheasant Oracle begin with as the late Paul Harvey famously said, "The Rest of the Story".
