Thread: Bird reports

    The county mowed a field by my house Thursday next to a patch of cattails, and last evening there were 17 or 18 pheasants between the cattails and my neighbor's feeder. Three were adult hens, and the rest were all young, and very small birds for this time of the year. I really could not tell roosters from the hens. That's the only place I've seen any real numbers of birds (pheasants) here in Spokane County.
    I also spoke with a rancher friend that I hunt on in the south central part of the state that told me in the last week or so he has started to see quite a few young birds around his home. He said there was a 2nd hatch, and that looks what happened here around the house.
    This week I'm going to run my dog and scout around on at least 2 or 3 of the ranches I hunt in Whitman County. Last season I took it easy on most of my places closer to home with the hope the numbers would be better this year. My trip, the week before last in that area didn't look very promising between what I didn't see and the ranchers I have spoken with.
    My gut feeling is I'll be spending a lot of time on the road if I want to get into many birds, pheasants or quail this season.

    I was out and for the Quail opener in Eastern WA. I saw no Quail. I did one spot with 2 Pheasant Roosters and 8 Hens. Boy that made my blood run warm. One of the Roosters flew just right, A perfect dream shot, Oh man come on season.........Bob

    Question

    When is Pheasant season in eastern WA, I thought it was from end of October to Jan?
    Or am I understanding the WA Fish and Game wrong?
