Tells you the status of wild pheasants in michigan, no post in two years.
Alot of fun though. Some years are better than others.I’m optimistic! I’ve got a few out my back door(can’t hunt here). My parents property 10 minutes away has a few birds for the first time in years. I just bought a property (41 acres) that’s currently holding more than a dozen birds. I have a few state land spots where I can count on putting birds up...That said, it’s definitely tough hunting public land in Michigan. The places that do have birds get pounded..
Yes there are. After demolition of tens of thousands of dilapidated/vacant homes and other structures, a fair bit of the city has reverted back to grassland. I wish our DNR would consider trapping these birds and releasing them in areas of the state with some habitat to allow birds to regain a foothold. Pheasants from the 'hood appear to have good genes!Isn't there a lot of pheasants in Detroit? My cousin lived there for a few years and said he'd hear them crowing all the time.
