There is not many places the pheasant populations did good this winter and leading into this spring. Iowa and SD had terrible amounts of snow and now will have flooding basically all of early spring. Birds up here in SD have been trying to feed on roadsides for along time now with most the state still snow covered. The birds were getting pretty skinny. But if it drys out quick and we do not have abundant rainfall in the spring the ones that do make it could be pretty successful.
