Wanting to take a friend Pheasant Hunting
« on: November 15, 2017, 02:42:44 PM »
A good friend of mine just started hunting and she really wants to get onto some pheasant. I have an English Springer who does OKAY. Last weekend we got her a nice little whitetail buck, early season she got a freaking ripper of a cougar while deer hunting. I'm just wanting to work my dogs and guide her mainly. Not even be the shooter, Id carry my camera. She is coming to Spokane this weekend and we plan on chasing birds Sunday. Any help would be HUGE.

thanks

If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

Not everyone's cup of tea i know, but being able to know there are birds for the dogs to work can be well worth it  :twocents:
To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

X2...Finding truely wild pheasants locally around Spokane is a "crap shoot"; so a very good suggestion for a new hunter and a young dog.

I did my first "planted" hunt at a ranch in Oregon a couple weekends ago.  After a decade of not hunting pheasants and two years of trying the WDFW release sites I wish I would have done it sooner.  It was well worth the price paid for the experience to work my dog on some birds and get my wife her first pheasants.  Not something I would do every weekend for financial reasons but I will definitely be going back.  2-3 trips a year seems reasonable and worth it to me anyway.

I live very close to Double Barrel and I was a friend of now former worker who would show me his arm scratches from the pheasants..."He (the owner ) imports those things from South Dakota...They are very 'wild' for planted birds..."

Everyone is hung up on pheasants, but they stock Huns, too and they react very much like wild ones.

If your friend is from out of state and does not have the NR WA small game license it may be cheaper to go to one of the pheasant farms.   We released a bunch of Idaho pheasants for the youth Pheasants Forever event in September and those were long tailed active birds.

TeacherMan...A followup? Were you able to get your friend into some birds?
