Wild Pheasants and 15 Inches of Snow

Here are some birds hanging out in woody cover. A good place to go when the grass is no longer a good place to hide.


Here is what the switchgrass looks like even after 15 inches of snow.


This our best field with all the birds. Still looks good after the snow compared to the white desert around it.


This food plot is getting hit hard by the birds

That first photo looks like it could've been taken from the hedgerow right along my road. That's exactly the cover the pheasants near me have been using regularly since the snow first began piling up.

That switchgrass looks a lot better than the switchgrass in my area. Wonder if the amount of ice down here made a difference?

Nice pictures.

We had very little ice. Ice will put it down more than snow for sure. Even wet snow that clings will put it down more but we had dry snow and it just drops down through it.
