PA Pheasant Article

http://standardspeaker.com/news/game-com...areas-1.1623568

Pretty good summary of the program and how its going.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

Re: PA Pheasant Article

Pretty good summary, some good and some bad

The bad which concerns me....
Other states do not want to give birds to PA due to lack of habitat.
Landowners are getting out of CREP in the WPRA's
Funding for CREP is shrinking
It is all in the article, not made up

Re: PA Pheasant Article

Thanks, a good read.

I kill because I'm hunting, but killing is not the reason I go hunting.

Upon reading the article myself, I think it's been important to point out that the Western states are growing reluctant to give birds to PA because of continuing loss of habitat in THEIR own states. I think the paragraph that follows that statement helps clarify that they mean the Western states themselves. You seem to imply the reason for their reluctance out West is due to a lack of habitat in PA. Some farms are withdrawing from CREP in the WPRAs.
