Ring-Necked Pheasant Season Opens Oct. 17
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/09/2020

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced that the upcoming 2020 pheasant hunting season opens statewide on October 17.

Wildlife officials say properties that used to have a 2 p.m. closure will now close at 12 p.m. to reduce safety conflicts for staff and to allow pheasants a resting period before being pursued.

Several other seasons also open October 17, including bobwhite quail and Hungarian partridge statewide, and ruffed grouse in Zone B.

"Pheasant hunting offers a fantastic means to work your hunting dog while also experiencing the unique grassland habitats spread across the southern part of the state," said Alaina Gerrits, DNR assistant upland wildlife ecologist.

During the 2019 pheasant hunting season, an estimated 40,800 hunters went out in search of pheasants and reported harvesting approximately 291,400 birds.
