Excellent post. In the early 1960s we have many pheasants in southeast PA.

I recall one Saturday morning , circa 1961, we had a corn picker machine and neighbor operator come pick our corn and I had to work and could not hunt birds. As the machine arrived, we also had a man and his wife and another couple bird hunters arrive at our farm to ask permission to hunt. Dad said they could and told them to go up back and get their pheasant limit.

About noon, all four folks came by the house and thanked us for permission to hunt. Dad asked, "Did you all get your limit?" One man said, "No, no birds even though we saw plenty. The problem was, every time we drew a bead on a pheasant, it took off."
