      They are beautiful @tersha! We don’t have any pheasants at all here in South Africa so they are fascinating to look at!

        They are beautiful Tobie, but can be a nuisance in the garden!

        Thanks Robert, they are beautiful, but pesty, they eat all the bulbs and young flower shoots in the garden. Not so keen on the taste. I used to know someone that did a lot of pheasant shoots, and I got too many, and got bored with them.

          We used to get 500 chicks every year from the fish and game dept and raise them for release around the ranch, then you had to allow a certain amount of public access to the release areas during hunting season. We were so remote we didn’t see too many strangers, most were neighbors, one who brewed a sizable amount of beer so his hunting visits always included a case or two of liquid refreshment, and we would get pies ,cookies, fresh made bread and a variety of pickled goods and jams, it was more then a fair trade. opening day of the season almost always was the day of the thanksgiving holiday so quite often we would all get together and hunt after  the holiday dinner. Photos of these birds always inspire some good memories for myself.
