PA Pheasant

So the early season ended today and my pup's stats are as follows:

99 pheasant flushes from the end of her nose (had a few come up close but didn't count if it wasn't at the end of her nose) 33 Roosters, 3 of which were banded, 1 reward bird, 66 hens and plenty of kills. Needless to say we've ate a lot of pheasant so we could keep hunting. 6 in possession 2 per day is our law.

All birds were fair chase and on PA game lands... Take a look at the videos below to see my little girl in action over the past 4 weeks

First 2 weeks

We have a couple weeks of deer season before we hit the late season, best bird dog I've ever owned!

Looks like a lot of fun. Great working dog you got there, seems she likes to chew the birds a bit though, haha.
What is a reward bird? We don't have pheasants down here, wish we did.

PAGC tags 5000 birds, about 2% for information on survival rates. Of those some are green banded, which is for information, some are silver banded worth $100 reward. That one bird paid for my hunting license! I wasn't aware of the program until I called after the first banded bird I shot.
