Saw 4 pheasants in deer season

4 male pheasants in a cut corn field near game lands in WMU 2A. So I assume these are PGC birds.

Hope they make it through the winter and summer to next season.

I'm sure there are a good number of birds still around. I saw 5 hens and 3 roosters today driving home. Of course there is no late season where I saw them

I think that no late season and no taking of hens is foolish for stocked birds. If they were wild or would establish a wild population I would understand. It is nice to see them and I hope they make it thru until next year.

They release breeding stock after egg collection in the spring as well. I know some birds hold over as I have taken some that had way longer spurs and tails than recently stocked birds of the year.
