establishing pheasant habitat in turkeyville..
« on: Yesterday at 10:06:30 AM »
Is it possible to establish a pheasant population with so many turkey? 


I'm wanting to establish permanent nesting pheasant habitat, but I'm thinking I'll have to settle for pen raised release birds.  I'd like them to be as close to wild as possible.

I'm sure that this could be reverse engendered with what's available.

My focus was on the habitat itself and if turkeys could be kept from eating the nesting pheasant eggs by planting something thick enough the turkeys avoid going into.  Just wondering if anyone here as established a permanent population of pheasant in the presence of turkey. 



I see on other sites they talk about pheasant populations cratering with the arrival of turkey, and plenty of discussion about the same happening with grouse and other ground nesting birds.

Interesting.

I know very little about turkey/pheasant dynamics, but I do know that I hunt an area that is infested with turkeys north of Spokane, and there are always pheasant around.

So they can coexist.

Good luck.   It would be cool if it worked for you.

Did you get some PMs for locations after you used that word in relation to wildlife?
