Numbers up on opening weekend of pheasant season
[Excerpt] While the weather didn’t fully cooperate, at least the pheasants did. Iowa’s opening weekend of pheasant hunting began wet and ended with mostly satisfied hunters.
“Comparing hunter numbers to the past five to eight years, this opening weekend had a much higher participation rate, that I observed,” said Ben Bergman, conservation officer in Cerro Gordo County. Hunter success was also better.
In Sac County, the morning rain ended earlier and hunters were on birds early. A group of seven hunters had seven roosters in the bag within 45 minutes of the season opening, hunting on a restored prairie on the Burrows Pond Complex.
“I would guess we saw around 40 pheasants on that 80-acre tract, maybe more,” said Pete Hildreth, supervisor for the southwest wildlife district for the DNR..
