Michigan’s pheasant release program growing slowly

The budget for next year will increase by $25,000 – from $150,000 to $175,000 – which translates, roughly, into about 1,000 more birds being released next year through Michigan's pheasant release program. (Stock photo by Eric Morken)

Michigan’s pheasant release program on state game areas was a success again this year, according to Adam Bump, upland game bird specialist with the Department of Natural Resources.
“Everything seemed to go well,” Bump said. “People seemed to be pretty satisfied. The new areas we opened were pretty popular and people seemed to be happy.”
