FLOYDADA – It's no secret that pheasant hunting is big business on the Texas High Plains, but managing the birds sometimes seems as if it is. Texas Cooperative Extension has scheduled three Pheasant Management Workshops to bring producers up to date on management findings relating to the elusive game bird.

The meetings are scheduled for:

- 6 p.m. Oct. 26 at Floyd County Extension Office in Floydada;

- 8:30 a.m. Oct. 28 at Sherman County Exhibit Building in Stratford; and

- 8:30 a.m. Oct. 29 at the Perrytown Expo Center Fairgrounds.

Ken Cearley, Extension wildlife specialist in Extension's North Region is coordinating the events. He said game hunting-related dollars are rolling in at an all-time high and revenues from pheasant venues are no exception.

"Pheasants have long been a hunting mainstay across much of this area," Cearley said. "But keeping the birds at a huntable level year in and year out has been a trick few have been able to consistently master. Our aim for this series of meetings is to give producers answers to their areas' specific pheasant-related questions.

"Topics for the three programs are similar, but we have made a real effort to acquire speakers who can put a local twist to management questions specific to each site. If you're a pheasant enthusiast, it will pay you to attend one of the meetings. I can assure you it will be time well-spent."

General topics include: "Origin and Biology of Ring-necked Pheasants," "Current Population Status," "Pheasant Habitat Management in the Texas Panhandle," Economic Importance of Pheasants to Local Communities," "Pheasants Forever," and "Farm Bill Provisions Related to Pheasants."

Each of the programs is set to conclude with a panel of local pheasant hunting operators.
