Five states, 2,000 miles, three men, three dogs and one message—save the disappearing pheasant habitat.

Anthony Hauck, Andrew Vavra and Rehan Nana all work at the Pheasants Forever national headquarters and will hunt for five consecutive days in five different states this season. They’re be traveling to North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota to hunt on public fields to show their support for local conservation groups.

The lack of quality pheasant habitat is not something to be taken lightly, and these three men are trying to bring attention to the seriousness of the situation. Hundreds of thousands of acres of prime upland bird habitat have been destroyed in each of the five states. Pheasant numbers across these most popular states have dipped considerably this year, mainly due to this habitat loss.

“We’re trying to show the public not only what’s going on with the devastation of the habitat,” says Vavra, “but also that anyone can go with friends to public land and find birds. With the low bird counts, it’s easy to get frustrated and give up on the season before it starts. But that’s not the attitude to have.”

Vavra went on to mention that he and his buddies went home with birds from each of the five states last year.

Interestingly enough, the best hunting in past years has come from Iowa, a state that’s seen a considerable decrease in bird populations. Just the other week we talked about how hard Iowa hunters have had to work to bag a few birds.

“We had to work for our birds, but it came down to habitat,’’ said Vavra. “Where there’s habitat, there’s birds.’’

It’s the fourth time they’ve made the trip, and as they have done in past years, they  documented it with pictures and video of their experiences on a blog, making it easy for you to follow their adventure.
