Pheasents Forever??

13 posts in this topic

It seems kinda strange to me, with this Pheasants Forever group, pushing conservation and saving habitat. Planting for pheasants, if you really wanted them forever, maybe stop shooting them. Shouldn't it really be called Pheasants for us to shoot?

Just seems kinda strange.

The goal is to selectively shoot them. raise and maintain certain populations

Wazz, what's with the trolling???? Pheasants Forever and other sporting organizations like them and us hunters that fund them have done more for wildlife than any other group including all the bird watcher groups put together.

If you are not kidding:

It's all about habitat - and not just for pheasants. Many species from songbirds to fish to humans benefit from the work PF does with habitat.

As for hunting the birds, or any other wildlife, hunters take the surplus. They take what the habitat or arrangement cannot hold or sustain.

Without the work of groups like PF, MN Waterfowl, DU, TU, the list goes on, there would be less wildlife today, even if we stopped hunting all-together.

If you've looked at wazz's other posts you see that he is a hunter. His post was not "anti-" in any way. It sounds like its just a question of definitions.

Like anything, if left unchecked they will get out of hand and if there is no conservation efforts, they will not survive in any considerable numbers.

I got it right away, sorry, I thought your post was funny. As for those who defended it I think you guys did a super job. Informative and nice, I've ran into some of the PETA cult people and all they want is an argument. Keep em commin' wazz!!

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
