    A friend and I are going to start raising pheasants in Michigan. We are planning on using them for put and take hunting. The flight pen will be roughly 50'X100'. We have been talking about how tall to make it. Most of my research suggests around 12'. We thought a taller pen might result in stronger flying birds. What are the disadvantages or concern a taller pen might present?

    Also, anything else to consider when it comes to pen design would also be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Joe
