Hunting pheasants in Idaho is a tradition and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game is cultivating that by stocking pheasants on nine WMAs.
WMAs, or Wildlife Management Areas, are sections of land controlled by IDFG to help wildlife when they become vulnerable, like mule deer. But, they also help to provide Idaho with unique hunting experiences.
CBS 2 News reports, IDFG has nine WMAs on their stocking schedule this season. They started last month and will stock birds through December when the season ends.
Pheasant hunting in southern Idaho starts Oct. 19 and ends Dec. 31st.
