New York’s Allegany County Pheasant Program prevails amid flu outbreak in March

A unique pheasant raising and stocking program in Allegany County, N.Y., has been able to move forward this year, despite an Avian flu outbreak that decimated the state’s entire breeder flock in March. The result is plenty of pheasants for area hunters, including youth hunts. (Photo provided)

The Allegany County Pheasant Program is a collaboration between a group of private stakeholders and the Allegany County Sheriff’s Office, and since 2008 has supplemented ring-necked stocking by the state Department of Environmental Conservation with hundreds of additional birds and multiple available hunting locations.
