Pheasant numbers in the Watertown area dismal at best. Moved here 2 years ago from Aberdeen and in 2+ seasons I've shot 2 roosters within 30 miles of Watertown. You have to get west of Clark and really out west of Redfield to find decent numbers. Unless you have some private land to hunt in the Watertown area that has some birds you need to travel west. Sorry for the bad news but it's just the way it is. I don't like it either. I can't just run out for a quick hour or two hunt anymore. Seems I have to drive for an hour or more. I just got a report from another guy on the UPH site and he said they found decent numbers west of Redfield in the Rockham and Zell area. Good luck.
