It would be impossible to tell the difference between a wild hen and a pen raised hen. We need the wild hens for future broods.
Iron Bear, can you read? Read the reference article, the folks back East disagree with you, and that goes for deer as well.Bullshi+!
As you have been told time and time again when you bring up this pesticide crap.
Back east pesticides are used and they have plenty of pheasant and deer.
Conservation and releasing pheasants are two very different things, and that difference is why we have these conversations.Support the upland and waterfowl slams, that's basically a stamp for state conservation.
Nothing beats pheasant hunting with a dog that can find pheasants.I would love a pheasant stamp that helps out on predators and plowing some fields and making more public pheasant habitat because we do have wild pheasants in Utah I get into them every year I hate when I read that we don't like I have access to some good private hooper fields and Willard and guess what most of what we get up is wild big spur and tail birds but the thing people don't realize is if you don't have a great dog them wild birds will run run run and snake your mediocre dog everytime we got smart birds and I've killed multiple birds with 24inch plus tails hell today I went out and jumped 5 big roosters and 6 hens just in the morning then came home and watched football the rest of day I don't take part in hunting the pen raised birds but I also don't disagree with it it gives people with no access to where wild birds are a opportunity and also it gives people with not very good dogs still get some birds up!! Sorry for the vent it just gets to me when people say we have no wild birds as I hunt them every year and watch them breed every spring in spare time I enjoy it I love pheasants!!!!! Have a wonderful day good hunting get em up!!!!
