With the finding of the bird flu in several different locations in Wisconsin. What are everyone's thoughts on what the DNR will do for production and release numbers. May your dogs work good and your shot be true come October.
2022 Pheasant Hunting
The dnr has posted the holiday hunt properties , there are 25 of them. I like checking out different areas as the season gets long.
Too bad Lake Link removed all the previous years of posts as it used to display. If you could look, as in the past, you would see a dramatic decrease in posts in this forum the last couple years.
A dramatic loss of posts. Must have been Covid 19. No one had time to hunt or something I guess.
Wisconsin used to do Christmas planting all over the state. Wisconsin stopped it after 2011.
Now Wisconsin DNR focuses on central and southern counties for unknown reasons: money, money money? Mandate and sell a stamp to fund the birds and then resell these birds for extra at Bong. Hmmmm. . .
Wisconsin started stocking and selling state birds, 11,000 birds per season, at Bong. about the same time as the DNR stopped a statewide Christmas release. That is like stocking 9 Killsnake Wildlife or 10 Billion Wildlife or 6 Kettle Moraine Wildlife areas, https://dnr.wi.gov/pheasantstocking/
Thank gosh the politicians at Madison and folks paying extra to hunt at Bong will have extra Christma pheasant stockings I guess.
Merry Merry Christmas Wisconsin
The Wisconsin DNR can stuff it someplace deep and dark for Thanksgiving
Got out today the pup kicked up three woodcock.
We were done and I was casing my gun , the wind changed and the dog whirled around and ran to the edge of the lot and flushed a nice bird. Made me laugh after all the walking.
Got out this morning put up 2 roosters. Not sure how to post pictures. Tomorrow will be pheasant fettuccine alfredo with some broccoli. Love watching the dog work.
2022 is off and running. Surprised how few hunters were out. Granted I hunted later in the day, but odd. Good luck this year everyone.
