2017 Pheasant Allocation

 

Consult the chart below to find out where and when the Pennsylvania Game Commission will be releasing ring-necked pheasants. Click on your region of interest in the chart below, to get a breakdown of stockings within each of the state's six regions. The region tables outline the number of birds to be stocked in each county, the public properties slated to be stocked and a one- to four-day window in which stockings will take place within the counties. This stocking information is offered to all hunters to take some of the guesswork out of deciding when to go hunting and insurance that hunters will have improved opportunities. Best of luck afield!
