    Take a look at the number of WILD birds flushed on four farms!

    Lol. !

    The ONLY reason this Program would not succeed would be that not enough upland hunters support it!

    I see that the WPRA program seems to be shrinking. Whatís going on? Has the State concluded that pheasants can no longer sustain a wild population in PA?

    If so, that is really disappointing.

    Unfortunately some of the WPRA's haven't received the support of the sportsman in Pa., relying only on the local PF Chapter to do all the work . A couple WPRA's are still doing very well and are offering youth hunts. Even in these units it's just a handful of sportsman doing all the work.
    There ARE still pockets of wild birds outside of the WPRA's , but these are few and far between .

    Thatís a shame. I spend weekends in Berks County. Iím going to try to get involved there. It would be nice to see less pointless mowing.

    Berks County...I have very fond memories of hunting wild birds in that area in years gone by! There is a very large Game Preserve not far from there that has promise and has had reports of broods.

    Welcome to the site!

    It's probably not a wise thing for me to give exact locations of the few remaining locations of wild birds on a public Forum.
    We spend a great deal of time and effort locating these areas and I wouldn't want to jeopardize someone's favorite spot.
