Pheasant Program

Onondaga County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs

The 2017 OCFSC Pheasant Program again produced a regular Fall release of hardy, strong flying pheasants. Overall production was down slightly (approx. 75% success) due to early loss of 1 to 5 day old chicks. Potential causes have been isolated & targeted for 2018 improvement.

The Mongolian-Chinese pheasants continue to do well on the corn, sunflower & sorghum.

The Pheasant Program feed remains the largest ongoing costs. Recently prices leveled somewhat and accordingly the requested donation for 2018 will again remain at $7.00 per bird.

  • Orders should be placed with me by March 1st.
  • To ensure the number of birds requested – A minimum of 50% of the total donation required will be due no later than June 1st – and the balance by Sept. 1st.
  • The number of birds ordered for the 2018 program will be approximately 2,300 unless there is strong club support to the contrary.
  • Please be sure your members are aware of the overall program details & issues – your feedback is essential in determining our future plans with pheasants.

The required 2018 three-part application form is available on the bottom of this webpage:
