It seems like there are a lot people in the Pacific Northwest that raise pheasants and pretty much just release them into the wilds of their neighborhoods. Right now there is a pheasant that is enjoying the back half of our property that we do not use for anything yet. I was wondering if it would be practical to raise pheasants in this manner and use them as early predator detection, as pheasants seem to be very skittish and somewhat loud when disturbed. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I think I really just want to justify raising a few pheasants and trying to keep them around.
