I grew up with a grandpa that hunted pheasants... my grandmother used to make the most amazing Christmas ornaments with feathers..... I still have a hide 20 years later that was harvested and salted for use..... I remember seeing the birds hanging on the back porch... I remember eating them.... I dont remember the taste... So here we are with 20 plus pheasants in hopes of keeping a breeding crop and harvesting for winter.... they are not friendly.. in fact you need to remain as OFF hand as possible to keep stress free. Pheasants.. EXCITED for them to progress.
