OPINION: Pheasant habitat is a community effort
It's been more than 20 years since I bagged my first pheasant. I don't recall exactly where we were hunting, but I do remember the crunching leaves underfoot on that beautiful fall day. I also remember having quite a time cocking the hammer of my dad's break-action, single-shot 20...
