Find Indiana Pheasant Hunting Locations
Use game bird hunts directory to find Indiana hunting lodges. Ringneck Pheasants & Bobwhite Quail were once abundant across Indiana and the populations peaked in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. At that time there were millions acres of Indiana farmland idled in USDA land retirement programs. These idled farmlands provided Indiana pheasants and quail with ideal conditions to nest and raise their young. However, farm policy has since changed such that it is more difficult for Indian farmers to have their land accepted into USDA land retirement programs.
Currently there is only slightly more than 250,000 acres of idled farmland across the state. To help address the pheasant and quail population decline, the Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife has designated priority areas to focus on pheasant and quail habitat management. The pheasant habitat development program is beginning to restore the wild populations in Indiana. In addition to the 1000's of acers of public hunting lands in Indiana, the state is also home to some top quality pheasant hunting lodges.
