    This evening I was out scouting for ducks at a big conservation area in northern missouri that is known for phesants. Didnt see enouph ducks worth hunting but I did manage to kick up a rooster phesant. This isnt the first time Ive kicked up a phesant or too at this spot. Durring dove season I kicked them up all the time in the same area. Im not much of a phesant hunter, where Im origanaly from there just wasnt any around, but I figure I should give it a try at this spot. What is the likleyhood that this bird will be hanging around in the same strip of grass tommorow afternoon? You should know that this bird took off like a bat out of hell. Will this have much of an effect?

    I used to hunt pheasant in upstate New York, and then the population dropped so low I stopped hunting them. Same thing in Ohio, I see one every so often but don't hunt them. I think the coyotes and house cats get a lot of them.

      Work the cover in the area with wind in your face and sun at your back. And work quietly. It's almost criminal to hunt pheasants without a dog. If you wing one, you'll never get it without a dog. They run like the wind.
