Pheasant with bow?

Recommended Posts

Is it legal to take a pheasant with a bow and arrow. No where in the regs do i see anything with bow and arrow. I had the same question about geese earlier in the year and yes it was legal to take geese with a bow. Ended up getting 7 so far this year what a rush. Starting to see all the roosters huddled up under evergreens and on corners of some land i have permission for. Gun is just to easy to do.

I am 99.99% sure that it is legal. The 0.01% of not being sure is simply because you are asking the question. I am pretty sure I have heard of people hunting pheasants with a bow and trying to take them in flight.

I miss enough with a gun, I do not need the extra challenge.

Yes, it is legal, I have hunted a few times with people using bow and flu flu arrows.

yes you can, if you go to you tube and do a search for pheasant hunting with a bow it should pull up some videos of people getting pheasants with a bow.

I normally have a smallgame lic & stamp when I deer hunt and carry 2 flu flus with blunts,In the evenings on woods edges when pheasants come to roost, I'd get a few.This year I didn't get a smallgame lic. But I've had the most birds walk up on me hunting a different area sparcely treed.

Dont see deer but lots of birds!

I just checked out some videos on you tube lookes like they where using a recurve to shoot them. It looks fun, but very tricky.

I think this year they made it so ANYONE small game hunting must be wearing some blaze orange. So it might not be a good idea to have blunt tips in your quiver if you aren't wearing orange.

Page 30 of the regs:

Small Game Seasons: You may not take small game unless a

visible portion of at least one article of clothing above the waist is blaze orange, except when hunting wild turkeys, migratory birds, raccoons, predators, when hunting by falconry, or while trapping.

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .

    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
