Pheasants Aren't Native!
Pheasant hunting is a rite of passage and a first-time hunt for many. The colorful game bird has been a popular quarry for almost a century, but many people don't realize that pheasants were introduced to the United States in the late 1800s. In Wyoming today, pheasants are raised at bird farms to support the thousands of hunters that benefit from this hunting opportunity. The bird is excellent table fare and serves as a valuable hunting recruitment opportunity.
