The biggest reason for bird decline is a lack of grass in the corn rows caused by better farming chemicals. If the farmers planted hay in the corn rows to add to there corn bails and people can raise and release pheasants==PROBLEM SOLVED
WE COULD BE RIGHT THERE WITH NORTH DAKOTA OR BETTER WITH ALL THE CORN LAND WE HAVE!

Pheasant hunting is the most simple and boring of upland hunting. If you want a challenge, come to the WV mountains and walk some benches and shoot some grouse then you will see how good you are at bird hunting.
