A Few Highlights of the 2020 OCFSC Pheasant Program

The 2020 OCFSC Pheasant Program produced one of the better total releases, with our overall success of approx.88.5%.  We had a healthy crop (sunflower/corn/sorghum} producing some good size, strong, healthy birds. The 2020 program functioned completely on volunteer help, which was a large factor for the success!  THANK YOU !

The 2021 program plans include a number of repair/upgrades for the building/grounds hope to see you there.
