Aurora, Colo. –-(Ammoland.com)- While some may think the formula for producing pheasants is confusing or downright mysterious, science tells us weather and habitat are the two critical variables determining our pheasant population.
Evidenced by our 2014 Pheasant Hunting Forecast, positive weather patterns during the winter and spring seasons have assisted in population increases for most states.
For bird hunters who enjoy walking tracts of pheasant habitat, the fall hunting season of 2014 should provide a high level of anticipation compared to recent years. Read your own state’s Pheasant Hunting Forecast HERE.
While Pheasants Forever is obviously thrilled about this year’s upturn in bird numbers, “The Habitat Organization” remains steadfast in our commitment to improving both the quantity and quality of prairies and grasslands throughout pheasant country.
Favorable weather conditions can lead to short-term population gains, however, it’s habitat that remains the key to a long-term turnaround in bird numbers. Even in the most challenging of times for habitat and wildlife, our member’s support of our mission for wild things and wild places is crucial for protecting habitat and our hunting heritage.
