Pheasant Numbers Are Increasing For Fall Hunts

Iowa’s pheasant hunters can expect to find more birds this fall when they head to the fields, according to state wildlife experts.

 The forecast is based on the recently completed statewide population survey of pheasants, quail, partridge, cottontail rabbits and jackrabbits.

Iowa’s pheasant population increased in every nine county region except northwest where it was similar to last year.  

The survey counted a state average of 21 birds per 30 mile route wich is 250 to 300 thousand roosters this fall.
