Can't believe the number of pheasants around here!!! Last winter was VERY mild so a lot of birds made it through!!! I don't think you can go a mile with out seeing at least 10 birds or more!! Had a great hatch also Saw one group of chicks with a hen crossing the road and there were 12 in that group alone and were already flying. I'm quessing that she picked up some strays from a hen that was killed but they are all over the place. Should be an awesome season!!
