Pheasant Hunting Tips (And More) in the Next Pheasants Forever Journal
There is some great advice in the upcoming Winter Issue of the Pheasants Forever Journal (mailed Oct. 26) for the pheasant hunter, including:
- Pheasants Forever’s “Gun Dogs” writer Tom Davis, out of Green Bay, Wisconsin, penned a great piece for us on late season hunting, but his advice applies to any time of year. One simple tip: Don’t approach public areas from the parking lot like everybody else. You’ll find out the proper “how to” from Tom in a couple weeks.
- Frequent Pheasants Forever shooting contributor John Taylor will provide some good tips on coated ammo, what it’s good for and what it’s not.
- Idaho writer and outdoor celeb Ron Spomer gives a rare, detailed look at wing shooting in Argentina. (One thought: Don’t bring a .28 gauge.)
- Look for our first “Wild Game Cooking” special section. Hey, cooking is getting bigger all the time, and far be it for us to miss a fun trend. The pictures alone will have you drooling.
- On the conservation side, check out Dave Smith’s inside look at where the country’s marquee upland habitat effort, the Conservation Reserve Program, is heading.
As I do each fall, I’ll be visiting and hunting upland birds with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever chapters in west central Minnesota, western Iowa, central Kansas, central Texas, far southwest Nebraska, eastern North Dakota and a unique Pheasants Forever project on the south end of South Dakota’s Black Hills. We’ve told you how pheasant numbers are down this year, but don’t count out our chapter’s ability to find the birds anyway. I’m hoping for a good year.
