    I think he's F2 and he's in the woods thick with pine trees and is beautiful but i need someway to trap him .Has anyone ever used a bob trap for pheasants and baited him with feed? ps. there is no other food around because we have about a foot ofsnow!!!!

    The pheasant will come back if it has a hen. Then I set a box up and ran them into the box along the side of the pen when they came back. They came back between 1-4 days.

    If you know exactly where he is staying you might try one of the wire "Haveaheart" traps with some scratch grain in it for bait. This has worked for me a couple of times, but if your in a cold or snowy area you would have to monitor it frequenty. Hope you don.t have many predators around. Good Luck Amigo
