Additional Pheasants to be Stocked
December 20, 2006
The Division of Fish and Wildlife will release an additional 1000 to 1500 pheasants on stocked Wildlife Management Areas beginning December 22 . This increase is above and beyond the 55,000 bird baseline established for this season. The surplus birds are a product of the normal Rockport Pheasant Farm operations.
