    Came in from pheasant hunting Saturday on the farm, and my 85 year old mother said there was a hen pheasant in the front yard with 9 small baby chicks. I thought that can’t be this late in the season in Washington county. Sure enough, that afternoon there she was on the other side of the yard with 9 baby chicks in tow. Awful cold last night for that small of chicks that can’t even fly yet. Anyone ever seen baby pheasants this late in the year?

    Nope I have not. She must have been determined to have some. Pheasant hunting this weekend in North Central was very tough sledding. Lots of corn still in. Worst opening weekend I can remember.

    Not in my 30 plus years of hunting pheasant. They are several months behind the norm.

    A few years ago on opening weekend the dog went on point and when I went in to flush a group of 6-7 pheasant poults got up. They weren’t even the size of a bobwhite.
