pheasant hunting?

Anyone here into pheasant hunting? I tried it for the first time last year, when I was visiting some friends in South Dakota. If I can swing it again this year, I would like to go back and try it again.

Never been bird hunting. Never really had an interest. Although I may go blast some crows this year.

In NH it's mostly stocked birds put and take as the pheasants have a tough time surviving unless it's a mild winter. I am usually bow hunting deer then but would love to try the Dakota's some year. What is holding me back is the cost, not just the hunt but doubling that up with the fuel prices, etc just to get there.

I hate pheasant hunting . They scare the hell of me when they blowup when you almost step on them , by the time I compose myself there are out of range . Now dove hunting in Ca deserts or Mexico I love , you will flat wear a gun out with all the dove there .

I grew up hunting pheasants and quail and training bird dogs in Nebraska, back in the 60s. Deer were something of a novelty, then, but we could walk out our back door, grab the dog and disappear all day. A slow day was seeing only forty birds and only a couple of coveys of quail. Farming was old school, in those days - plenty of wind breaks, grass waterways, no insecticides. You could hunt, anywhere, simply by asking the farmer, but, of course, they knew us kids, anyway. It was heaven and I didn't even know it.

It's all gone, now, but I'll never forget it. Most of those farms are paved over into houses and parking lots. Farming is all done with chemicals - no shelter belts, no grass ways, not a weed in sight. Breaks my heart, but I have my memories and I still have a bird dog, even though there's little in the way of bird hunting, up here in northern Wisconsin. My Setter and I walk the woods, every day, and I still get a thrill watching him work the cover.

My family pheasant hunted when I was growing up. I'd walk along with my BB gun shooting once in a while. There is a man in our area that would hatch & release pheasants for years and we'd see them from time to time. But he doesn't hatch them anymore & I think the coyote and fox ate most of them.

I just love my wild turkeys. I bought 80lbs of shelled corn for them today. When I went out to grill some brats on the grill tonight, I had at least 30 of them waddling away to the neighbor's to scrounge food. The little buggers.

Neat pictures John. I buy chicken scratch and cat food for the critters in Ephrata. Plus some suet for the squirrels. The cat food feeder holds 30 lbs and they go through that once a week. The neighbor fills it when we are gone. These critters cost me about $100 a month to feed.

I grew up hunting pheasants and rabbits in western Iowa. There was so much game in them days (60's) you could hunt with a rock. These days we hunt mostly woodcock and grouse in northern Michigan. We still do the pheasant farm thing but I like the woods best. Me on the left. Audubon Autumn botton right.

Looks like a healthy bunch of gobblers. As to pheasant hunting referred to by the OP, try Kansas sometime. Great pheasant hunting.
