Over your guys pheasant career what is the total Number of birds you would say you have shoot in Mn only ?
Ive been pheasant hunting for about 13yrs. now my best season so far was when i was unemployed does this count:confused: I hunted alot and bagged 43 Roosters here that year that I could say were soley mine ! Lets just say I consumed more than my far share and gave more than enough to family members and friends that year but not keeping a true log on my counts each year which ive started one now thought it would be interesting to here others id guess mine over 100 !

Well....... I would have to say around 75. Im going to have to start keeping a log like Mitch from here on out. Hopefully it does not snow as much this year and I can get out more. Plowing snow in the winter sure does make if dificult to get out of town.

Well lets see. Started hunting phez in MN in 1956 and lived there until 1978. I'd estimate I shot an average of 30 birds a year, maybe more, during those good ol' soil bank days. So that would be an easy 600+, then add the 10 per year I've shot during the past 6-7 years hunting around Canby. So I'd estimate I've taken a good 700 MN pheasants. Now SD that's a tough one to add up. Been hunting out here for 34 seasons. I suppose that's another thousand or two. I think last year's tally was nearly 90. Best year ever. Actually ended up with less than normal in the freezer as I gave the majority of them away. Now I'm not bragging about the above numbers. It's just the results of 55 years of hunting pheasants and living where the numbers were/are good.

I have a grand total of one Minnesota pheasant.:thumbsup: It is mounted and is a fine example from your state. Not too bad since I've only hunted Minnesota once in my life. The year was 1987 around Caledonia.

71 for me. Only had 3 seasons to hunt the state. Best 3 seasons of pheasant hunting I've had.
