Ringneck Pheasant - Another great photo of the North Dakota chicken! LOL :) (I say this because they out number any other bird, are so plentiful, that they are as common as chicken to eat).

Ring-necked Pheasant.  Winter,1990. Cope, Colorado.  My father and brother used to go to the little town of Cope Colorado for the pheasant hunt every year.  I was a terrible shot and could never bag a bird.

I would like to raise Ring Neck Pheasants and release them to increase the population.  I used to hunt with my Dad when I was little, one of my fondest childhood memories, although I never carried a gun and was most content walking the slew and watching the dogs work.  Hunting is not as good as it used to be due to a diminished population.  What a fun and rewarding way to give back!

Ring-Necked Pheasant - came across one of these (male) while walking my dogs one day. I would NEVER have seen him if it were not for my dogs, who were straining at the leash to get closer. Amazing how such a colourful bird can be virtually invisible! I was within a couple metres of it!
