Unfortunately there are thousands of stocked birds in South Dakota that's why they have the bird numbers that they do. I raise roosters to release and I can't tell the difference between a released bird and a wild bird.
What do you mean? I dont even pheasant hunt but i think its a fair assumption the roosters i see hanging out in the parking lot picking at gravel at high noon or walking right down the middle of the path 20 yards in front of me when im on my way out to bowhunt are likely released birds. Am I wrong?
