Remember that them pheasants that you are feeding also need grit or sand to help digest the corn. If your swamps are loosing their cattails, you may have to many muskrats.

Winter conditions and spring nesting conditions only play a minimal role in the pheasant population. The biggest issue right now is grassland habitat. Pheasants can rebound quickly from year to year but not if they don't have any habitat to live in. Hopefully the newly passed Farm Bill will help this conservation effort.

You want to save Pheasants then get rid of Ethanol. That would save hundreds of thousands.
