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!

it will be pen raisded over dogs...

 

thanks timb!

They will let you get right up on them. Dogs will flush out a few. I have literally kicked pen raised in the rear to get them to fly off. I don't consider them to sporty but it gives newer hunters confidence in the beginning.
