WRIGHT COUNTY PHEASANTS FOREVER CHAPTER #95
WCPF Sponsors a corn giveaway as a supplement to naturally occurring grains and food plots in harsher than normal winters in the hope of carrying a few extra birds through the winter. However, we make every effort to stress that grassland habitat (nesting and brood rearing cover) is still the primary limiting factor facing pheasant populations in Minnesota and should be the focus of any pheasant management plan. In addition we provide the following guidance below if you choose to feed pheasants.
During normal winters, with food plots and waste grain in crop stubble, feeding pheasants is usually not necessary. However, during severe winters some flocks can benefit from feeding if people have interest and do it properly.
Many pheasants die from exposure during and after severe winter storms when their cover is blown full of snow. Pheasants need adequate cover to survive harsh winters. This critical cover can be provided by tree plantings with cedar and evergreens and by preserving wetland areas of cane, cattails, and willow. The best way to provide food is with a planned and managed food plot every year. Cost sharing is available for food plots and woody cover plantings.
