Pheasant hunting

I'm bored and my dog needs a good run. I'm thinking of trying to find the last pheasant in central PA. I know the releases were way down this year but I'm hoping a bird or two might still be hiding out there. I'll probably hunt SGL 169 sometime this week. Has anybody seen any pheasants lately, or am I just chasing ghosts?

Re: Pheasant hunting

The last one I saw (and killed) was last Monday. I'll wager there's a couple around yet. Just have to look hard to find them.

Re: Pheasant hunting

SGL 249 might still have a few birds left. It gets a healthy stocking throughout the fall, like 169 does. You better be ready to get in the brush though, and be prepared for a possible blood transfusion from all the briars!

There is no "X" in my bow!!

Re: Pheasant hunting

Make sure there is an open season where you go. Some parts of the state don't have a second season. SGL 249 does not have a second season. I think sgl 169 is close to the cut off for the second season so be sure to check it out before you go hunting.

Hunted the Laurelton (Union County) Game Lands yesterday and didn't see a single pheasant track.
