Pheasant Stocking an Unfortunate Waste of Money
OCTOBER 2, 2011
Flooding related to Tropical Storm Lee severely damaged the two farms used for raising Ring-necked Pheasants in Pennsylvania earlier this year, limiting the number of birds that will be released for slaughter by hunters (and slaughter is exactly what shooting farm-raised birds is). Never fear, hunters ! In an effort to appease small game hunters, Roe said the commission will increase its production of pheasants to 200,000 birds for the 2012-13 season.
