Re: Habitat related question for ringneck pheasants
Most of the birds I got last year came out of thick woody cover loaded with greenbriar and honeysuckle. It could be that the birds got pushed to this area, but I find that the birds hold tighter in this type of cover. This allows the dog to get a solid point on the bird.
I got a few out of fields to, but most flushed out of range after running. I probably saw more birds in the fields, but harvested more from the woods.
Great question with some good answers.
If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.
