We have been super busy with the pheasant hunts. This beautiful Golden is getting ready to head to the Dakotas hunting and wanted a little warm up here first. He had a great morning!
Looks like they are starting to size each other up.
We will begin our pheasant hunts starting Saturday, September 27th. Call now to get your hunt scheduled, 269-365-4238. New this year…you are not required to have a small game license for pheasant hunting on a preserve. Yeah!
This is our first buck to lose all his velvet.
Here are a few of this year’s bucks from the game camera. They are looking good and we will have bucks of all sizes.
We set the game camera up next to one of the fox dens and got some great pictures of a few of the babies. Check them out.
We had our last hunt for the spring this past Sunday. We are now out of birds. I will get chick in May and we’ll be ready for more hunts in September. Thanks to Andrea, Zach and Randy for coming out and Mike for bringing them. See you all in the fall.
We have a momma fox with 5 babies out in the fields. We put our game camera up and got a few neat pictures. Not the best thing to have on a pheasant preserve, but they are beautiful to watch.
Now that the snow has melted off, we can resume our pheasant hunts. We can go until April 30th on our preserve. We are down to just a few birds. Here are a couple of recent hunts. Thanks guys for coming out.
Ever seen a pheasant egg? Our hens have been laying eggs recently. Here is a picture showing the green/brownish pheasant eggs with a few regular white chicken eggs. The pheasant eggs are about 1/2 the size of a chicken egg. The average pheasant egg weighed 1 oz vs. the chicken egg at 2 oz. We tried some and they taste like chicken eggs to me. Maybe a higher yolk ratio. But it takes more to make breakfast.
