What's the significance of the 9 AM shooting time for pheasants? Just curious as ND/SD don't have times, not sure about Wisconsin.

SD is even later than MN. From what I know, it protects the birds some.

SD is noon for the first 2 weeks and then 10am after that.

Iowa runs 8:00 to 4:30.

It lets the birds get into the fields and off the roads in the early morning so they won't be so easy to find is my guess.

IA is 8am. It gives the birds time to get up and get moving.

Nebraska doesn't have a time limit either, at least a few years back when I was there, and they were easy to find early - all eating in the bean field. But, by 8:30, they were back in the grass.

I assume then that feeding time must have something to do with it.

yeah, as stated earlier, the pheasants come out to feed in the morning and alot of times are right on the road picking stones.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
