Pheasant season should improve with fall harvest

By Bill Bartusek

Enter the third week of October and we are well on our way into fall. The pheasant season opened last Saturday and the outlook was very good. We had a good winter, spring and summer for raising birds and for the most part, they responded.

As usual, hunters faced a lot of cover in unharvested crops so that may have hampered their success. With a good dog, hunters were able to do fairly well. Hunting will improve as farmers make their way through the fields harvesting their crops.

The deer season for gun hunters opens on November 5.
