What is your favorite pheasant load?


Recommended Posts

Pen raised birds at a pay-to-hunt farm, or wild birds?


Over dogs or no?


If pen-raised, over dogs, just about any plain old target load 3 dram (1200 fps) with 7-1/2 will work.


If wild birds, I like 5 shot at about 1330 fps.


Several manufacturers make nice pheasant loads. Search/look through old threads on this upland game forum for recommendations. This has been covered before.


If you reload (which for hunting is probably not that cost effective) I have a good pheasant load I'll share with you.


Good luck. Pheasants are wayyy too much fun!
