areas with pheasants forever habitat signs
Pheasants Forever members and followers contribute to local habitat projects in many different ways, including funding for seed, food plot equipment, planting of trees, or installation of native grass plantings. Here are some guidelines regarding areas posted with Pheasants Forever habitat signs:
Signs are located on both public AND private lands
If on a WPA, WMA, GPA, etc., it is open to public hunting
If you don't see a WMA or WPA sign, you MUST ask permission—this is private land
Private land is where over 90 percent of our pheasant habitat is located, thus our focus on private land is important to the health and sustainability of our pheasant population.
Public land resources
Over 60 percent of land in the United States is privately owned. If you own or have hunting access to private land, you know there are prime hunting opportunities to be had. Not in either of those categories? Don't let that deter you from accessing great public land opportunities throughout the United States!
Seasoned pheasant hunters find that having a mix of public and private hunting opportunities marked on the map is the best recipe for success. For public land access, here are some pointers to help you plan your next day afield:
