The percentages will stay relatively the same. My point I guess is the hatch is more important than winter survival.How many acres is your hypothetical farm?
Moegoggie,Yes the hatch is most important to end numbers. But Hockey Bob doesn't make a good point. His figures are grossly skewed. Unless hes talking about the Warne Ranch or properly managed habitat! their aren't 10 pheasants per farm in the region where I live!! He must not live in South Dakota or has hunted only planted birds!
