That is all in the past now and a great hunting experience is now all but forgotten here and leaves a great hole in an old man’s heart ! Farming practices have changed dramatically, no more set aside fields, no more fence rows, no more habitat for nesting. And the growth of yotes in this area has not helped the pheasant situation either ! No need anymore to worry about how to prepare a pheasant when none are available to be cooked, and thst little bit of wisdom does not bring happiness !
    I am afraid Buck that it will be difficult for the state to do anything if farming practices remain the same. In my area I have seen the few small areas that still existed that were possible nesting locations being plowed under and now producing crops. Granted, crops are also needed as food for game birds, but that is only important if there is nesting habitat in order to produce those game birds in the first place ! I really do not see what the state can control in that situation. For a long time habitat was made possible thru the government funded CRP program which paid farmers to leave fields to grow into nesting areas, but that situation appears to have declined drastically in this area and everything is now being put into crop production, and the loss of habitat.

      Seems like nesting cover is a big part of the plan. You can read about it here:
