I have a question for all the pheasant hunters out there. Sometimes my dog brings back a bird that is still alive. How do you quickly and humanely finish off the bird before putting into vest? To date I have simply choked the birds out, but I would really like to find a better way to finish them off. I could curt their heads off or something like that but then my vest would get all bloody. I have tried to snap their necks but have never had good success doing that. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Grab them by the head and start spinning. About two or three spins and you'll feel the neck break and separate. Spin them much more and the head will come off smile.gif

That, or once you get hold on the head, grab the neck in two places and stretch it out a bit, you'll feel it separate, dead bird.

I love pheasant hunting!

I have always just stepped on their head and pulled up by the feet untill I feel the neck pop. If you pull to hard you will pull the head off, which sometimes I do anyway.

Give a man a deer, he’ll eat for a day. Teach him to be a bowhunter, will feed his family for ever!!!!

I spent most of my life hunting, the rest I have wasted.
