4-H Pheasant Rearing Workshop

  • Friday, March 22, 2024, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Learn how you can get free day-old pheasant chicks to raise and release into the wild!

Pheasant hunting has a long tradition as one the most popular small game hunting activities in New York State, but wild populations of this introduced species have reached all-time lows. Without propagation and release programs, pheasant hunting opportunities would not exist in New York.

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has a long history of propagating pheasants to help meet the demand for pheasant hunting opportunities.

Join CCE Educators in Cayuga, Schuyler or Seneca County to learn more about how you can get involved in this worthwhile project!
