Re: Got me thinkin... I wonder
Ladies & Gentlemen,
I am going to say this again, even thou the habitat in Lancaster County and surrounding area changed due to farming practices, western Pa at that time had the same
habitat for the Pheasant Program, if the PGC wanted the Pheasant program to continue, we would still have it today,
in Western Pa. The Avian flu as it was called a that time,
had very little to due with the over all Wild Pheasant Program and it's loss. Politics was the down fall of the Pa wild Pheasant Program, using the changing habitat as the excuse to let it fold. The Pheasant Forever Biologists advised the PGC of the western Pa Habitat, and were shunned at the time for bringing it to the hunting public's attention.
It has been a long haul to re-establish any kind of Wild Pheasant Program here in Pa, so far we have not re-established a huntable Wild Pheasant population. Politics not habitat was the down fall of the Pa Wild Pheasant Program.
Never care about what other people believe, be strong and walk in the way of the Lord.
