I am new to this site and have been really impressed by the numbers of people I have seen with pheasants in Missouri! I live in Warren County MO and have a 9 year old GSP and a 8 year old lab. I grew up hunting pheasants in Granger Iowa and now mostly hunt quail on public and a few private spots around my house. I also frequent a preserve close by to keep the dogs working. I have a goal for 2020 to kill a wild Missouri rooster, and seeing some of your post it makes me think I might actually be able to do it!
