Re: Pheseant Hen and Offspring
That's great to hear. I was out Sunday doing some scouting for Doves and a little dog training at a local pheasant stocking location in Central PA.
On the trail hiking in my dog(18mo old Draathar) stops dead and points something in some thick briars. I though it might have been a rabbit, so I say "no bird" and we keep going to a field for some retreiver training. On the way back he points nearly the same patch of briars, I'm confused now so I hike in and trounce around the brush and sure enough, A hen pheasant flushes out of the brush. Needless to say, the dog was very confused as to why I didn't shoot at it.
That's exciting to see a few birds holding over to the next season.
