Thread: pheasants breeds

    pheasants breeds

    I have around 500 acres looking to put down a few pheasants. What breeds stay the best?

    Don't have any blue backs or blue crosses, kansas, or japanese greens.
    Some old style black necks or ring necks may be your best bet.

    Blacknecks hold well but have poor flying ability. Michigan fly very, very well but wander and tend to like hedgerows rather than woodland. I use Kansas that work well for me - good returns and good flying ability. Flying quality over quantity.
    Try a few strains and tag them
