Pheasant stamp sales

Anybody know how many were sold and also how itís it trending up down? Felt like I seen more people hunting on Saturday then ever for pheasants. Just a thought I had as I get ready to head out this morning. Some guys take a rutcation I take a birdcation since Iíve gotten my first bird dog I get more enjoyment out of taking my springer out then sitting in a tree.

Went from 43,000 to 41,000. They hoped to sell 60,000.

I know there's been a heck of a lot of guys out. Saturday was as bad as it was before the stamp.

I only spent about an hour hunting but I saw far fewer pheasant hunters compared to years past. I didn't hunt pheasants last year so it may have been that way last year too.

Leave it to PGC to confuse the law Iím 65 years old and got a senior lifetime and I was told I had to buy the stamp for pheasants because of the year I turned 65 that is the most ridiculous thing I ever herd .After 50 years of buying hunting licenses all lifetime seniors should get it with there license itís discriminating and wrong . Who agrees

The gamelands near me were packed on Saturday AND Monday all day long. I enjoy hunting them, but I don't even bother going out until later in the season.

I'm sorry but I don't really see your point. Unfortunately you missed the cut off. Did you buy your stamp the last two years? If so, I'm not really sure why you think you should now get it for free.

Quite frankly, I'm not sure why we have senior licenses to begin with. Jr licenses as a recruitment tool I can see, but why give a discount to hunters who have far more time to hunt than any other segment of the hunting population?

So fed up with the stamp, the lack of truly wild birds, the press of other hunters in the filed, the presence of Avian Flu, Senior License OR NOT, and other stuff that is actually small things but add up to another brick in the wall that I have not hunted in about 5 years. Don't even have a license this year.
Shooting paper, them pesky and awful tasting orange flying discs we find in Trap / Skeet / Five Stand and Sporting Clays is where I spend my time these days.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
