One was shot a couple of years ago near Clarkfield. I got to see the pictures and it was a cool looking bird. Never saw one myself but I did see an albino partridge years ago. Consider yourself lucky prechlerker you saw what most never will. grin

I know of a property in Iowa where the gene has been passed on several times. Always exciting. I have seen several who have blochy white patches, but never a true all white and pink albino. Neet find if you can get one.

I have a spot just a few miles away where there have been a few spotted for the past 5 years. I could shoot this bird but I enjoy seeing it from time to time. They sure are pretty.

Might be a dumb question, but if one was to see an albino pheasant while hunting, how do you know if it's a rooster and can shoot it? Tail feather size?

Wish I could say I have had this problem. But yes, I would vote for tail feather.

But I am sure I can find the guys who will tell me that their dog is sooooooooo good it only points/flushes roosters! hehehehehe that cracks me up every time!

I would say either long tail feathers, the red patch on the head, or best of all, it cackles when it gets up.

runhotshot, I didn't know that they could breed albino pheasants? Must be some new pheasant raising technology to appeal to the rich and famous.

My dad shot one years ago in Iowa, it wasn't completly albino but it has large white patches, it cackled when it got up. He also shot a bird that apparently never matured into a male or female, it had some red in it, but mostly was brown, long tail feathers though, and it cackled so once again, bang. He took it into the DNR and had them look at it, it was mounted and is somewhere in a box in the basement.

    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
