Ohio releasing pheasants in Northwest Ohio

Nov 11, 2020 | Ottawa Outdoors | 0 comments

Local upland game hunters will have the chance to bag a ring-necked pheasant or two when the season kicks off this week. The daily bag limit during the regular season from last Friday, Nov. 6, to Jan. 10 is two roosters. The Ohio Division of Wildlife is releasing 14,000 roosters, or male pheasants, around the state. Hen pheasants are not legal to hunt. While no pheasants will be released in Ottawa County by wildlife officials, the nearby Resthaven Wildlife Area in Erie County received stockings of birds, as well as the Ringneck Ridge Area in Sandusky County, where free permits are needed. Other Northwest Ohio pheasant stockings included the Oxbow, Tiffin River and Wyandot wildlife areas.

Upcoming pheasant stockings include Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, Nov. 26.
