Pheasants and Labs: Photo Essay

To a Lab nothing else matters once the smell of a rooster fills their nostrils.


These majestic birds display colors that are almost other worldly.

The bird is reward enough but a little petting is always appreciated.

All the attention goes to the head, but the subtle shades of turquoise and silver on the back should not to be missed.

  1. I want to try pheasant hunting really bad. But Wisconsin’s pheasant population is extremely low. I’ve seen one pheasant in nearly three years of living here. I can remember seeing them running alongside the road back home in Illinois, but apparently the population there is dwindling, too. Mostly, pheasant hunting is done at hunt clubs now.

    • They are a ton of fun to hunt for sure! I don’t know much about the population/habitat in Wisconsin, but Wyoming certainly isn’t a hotbed for pheasants. Many of the places I like to hunt have relatively small numbers of wily, wild birds. I find it extremely rewarding to hunt them even though it results in few birds in the bag. Maybe you could find some similar places near you?
