Habitat and Food Food Plots
Photos by Nick Myers
Pheasant habitat does not only benefit pheasants, it benefits all wildlife! Since its beginning, the McHenry County Pheasants Forever chapter has impacted more than 2,000 acres of pheasant habitat and planted several thousands of acres of winter survival food plots. Both habitat and food plots are vital for wildlife survival.
Why is quality winter habitat so important to pheasants? See what happens when pheasants do not have large areas of quality winter shelter to escape wind driven snow. (photos and video by N.Myers)
