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.
Now that the snow has melted some, we can get back out for some bird hunting. We have pheasant and chukar still available and can hunt through April 30th on the preserve. So get those dogs out and get them some exercise after this loooong winter! Pheasant $20 per bird, chukar $17 per bird, 4 bird min per hunter. Give us a call to book your hunt at 269-365-4238.
Well, our deer season is over until fall again. The bucks have lost their antlers and the does are bred. We had several good hunts and guests who stayed at the lodge. (Wish I could post more pics, but not everyone wants their face on the web.)
Pheasants Hunts were extremely popular again this year. We do still have a few pheasants left for hunting, but this weather is not cooperating. Too much snow to even set the birds right now. Will update if we get a thaw and can do some hunts. We officially have until April 30th on the Game Ranch to hunt pheasant. And did you hear, beginning March 1st, pheasant hunters hunting on a licensed game ranch will not be required to purchase a small game license anymore.
Coyote hunting has been put on hold this year. We also snowplow and simply cannot keep up and try to get hunts in. Maybe next year.
Thanks for everyone’s support!
