Recommended Posts

browndog

I have some pheasants hanging around on the woods behind my house. Where can I get some corn to feed them. It use to be at Hiway ag in LeCenter but is not there this year, where are they distributing the corn this year?

Thank you

good luck finding some. i don't know how often or if you generally feed them but:

1. if you start feeding them make sure to feed them the entire winter.

2.make sure you put plenty of grit around your feeding areas

good luck, keep em going!

My dad farms and when he combines some cobs are tossed off the corn head and thrown onto the ground never to be picked up so before we plow i have a box for my fourwheeler and pick up as many cobs as i can.store them in a 50 gal. barrel then i have my supply for my pheasants to keep going all winter! just takes time!

Not sure how much you are willing to pay, but Tractor Supply Company has 50#bags for $7.50. Like was mentioned before, if you start feeding them, keep feeding them till most of the snow and ice is gone. Later, Paul

When I needed a few bags, the local feedmill was the place to go. The prices were a heck of a lot cheaper, and the quality is good. Never checked Fleet Farm, but I 'm sure some Chicken Feed.and Grit is available there too.

Just go to the source,drive around a bit and find a farmer that has some ear corn,usually able to spot from the road.Stop and ask if u can buy some for the pheasants,take some sacks or pails or something to put it in,i cant imagine them saying no.Ihave shelled corn handy if u are interested,but ear corn works better.

I agree with Charlie ear corn works great because you can just throw it to the spot were pheasants are you dont have to walk through waist deep drifts

being a farmer i leave some next to the woods in some low ground probably a acre pheasents,turkeys,the deer and whatever else.u could do the same if u have a little ground get some seed and plant some like u would sweet corn,then just take the garden tiller down the rows a couple times and u will get some corn it wont look like the farmers field but the birds can eat good.

the last couple of years the pheasant forever group had problems with a few people taking corn for there pigs and deer. and its getting harder to get ear corn from farmers as fewer and fewer are growing it.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!

      We hunt 108 and are overrun by wolves. You can count the number of deer tracks up there. Same thing to the west of us. Once they deplete the deer enough they either starve or move on. Problem is if they have a neighboring pack the fight is on and they have nowhere to go. So we go through these endless cycles between having deer or having wolves. Biologists have determined a wolf can eat 25 deer a year!
