Are Pheasants Affected By Shooting Noise?

Recommended Posts

I like to practise clay shooting in my 2.5 acre field but there are pheasant pens at the end of it, although with a good amount of cover in front of them. I do stop for a few weeks when the birds are first put in the pens but once they settle in they don't seem to take much notice of shotgun or rifle shots, opinions please.

We have a big crow problem , I sometimes have to decoy in the pens (8 acres ) and it doesn't seem to bother them at all ..

On our place we shoot vermin on the rearing field and in and around the release pens with shotguns and centrefires. If anything it seems to help on a shoot day as the pheasants don't take it personally.
