Pheasants Have Arrived!

If you have visited the Club recently, you probably noticed that the pheasant pen located adjacent to the Main Clubhouse has been stocked with about 400-500 pheasants, which LSA raises for the state of Massachusetts. Every year, MassWildlife stocks an average of 40,000 pheasants on Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) and other lands open to the public. These birds are stocked for recreational hunting and are paid for by revenue from license fees; however, the cost of raising the pheasants is the responsibility of LSA, and the caretakers are all Club volunteers. We ask that you please do not let your dog(s) wander unattended over near the pen, and if you witness any suspicious or abnormal activity in/on/near the pen, to please contact President Doug Frank at (413) 822-6490 or doug@leesportsmen.com as soon as possible. Find hunting regulations and pheasant stocking information here: Hunting Pheasants in Massachusetts
