Oklahoma's pheasant season could be a bust

Normally high pheasant producing areas likely still will have birds, although fewer, Schoeling said. Areas that only produced a few pheasants in the past, however, may not have any this season, he said.

“If an area has some cover, it's going to hold some pheasants,” Schoeling said.

Schoeling thinks the best hunting areas probably will be in the northern tier of counties along the Kansas border.

Pheasant season is open through Jan. 31 in the counties of Alfalfa, Beaver, Cimarron, Garfield, Grant, Harper, Kay, Noble, Texas, Woods and Woodward.

Pheasant hunting also is open in a portion of Osage County (west of SH 18 only) and portions of Blaine, Dewey, Ellis, Kingfisher and Logan counties (north of SH 51 only).

The daily limit is three roosters.
