Extended Pheasant Season

Now you have till February 22nd statewide to hunt pheasant. Still roosters only in designated WMUs and rooster and hen hunting in the others.

"PHEASANT: Male only in WMUs 2A, 2C, 4C, 4E, 5A and 5B – Oct. 26-Nov. 30, Dec 16-24 and Dec. 26-Feb 22. Male and female may be taken in all other WMUs – Oct. 26-Nov. 30, Dec. 16-24 and Dec. 26-Feb. 22 (2 daily). No open season for pheasants in any Wild Pheasant Recovery Areas"

Re: Extended Pheasant Season

Sounds good to me. It will be nice to get a chance to hunt more in the late season closer to home.

Lynn,
Great stuff, glad to see it, more action for the dogs and men, especially in late season.

Good question. I wonder if the new late season areas will get birds later in the year. Just have to wait and see.

Re: Extended Pheasant Season

I don't know either but the late season is mostly hens so I doubt the rooster only areas will get birds.

Even if you are releasing your own birds, you can now do it much later and hunt them.

Re: Extended Pheasant Season
