Ring-necked Pheasant Releases
Pheasants survey their new habitat before taking flight.
In 2001, Montana's Legislature revamped the state's Upland Game Bird Release Program. The program can reimburse landowners for raising and releasing pheasants in suitable habitats.
The intent of the program is to establish new pheasant populations for public hunting.
Projects on private land submitted in partnership with youth organizations, 4-H clubs, sports groups, or other associations that can guarantee the completion of all project requirements are also eligible.
