i went to the beach city wildlife area on thanksgiving morning, and i was in awe at how dangerous these pheasant releases are. more than 100 hunters swarming thru the woods with no organization what so ever. i had birdshot rained down on my head more than once and even had a guy pull his gun up on my hound. i think these hunts need to be lottery hunts or something because its only a matter of time before someone or someones dog gets shot i shot one pheasant and as it hit the ground another two guys unloaded on it i let them fight over what was left. very frustrating. now i know why i rabbit hunt because i never see anyone else doing it. i seen more than one guy leave with more than 2 birds i asked the one if he knew the limit was only 2 and his reply was what do you care its only illegal ya get caught. i just shook my head as i head for the truck.
