ACA & 4-H Pheasant Raise and Release Project

A big THANK YOU to the partners, sponsors, and members that made this year’s pheasant raise and release such a success. In all, 11,353 pheasant chicks were raised by 4-H members with an additional 6,587 chicks raised by landowners, schools, Boy Scout troops, and Fish & Game clubs. 

This year, we ran a photo contest for participants and their parents, sponsored by Calgary Fish & Game Association. Congratulations to all the winners in each category.  Shout out to Lethbridge Fish & Game, Southern Alberta Bow Hunters Association and members Dennis and Cheryl Meyer, Wheatland Conservation and Wildlife Association, and every single person that donated (we exceeded $15,500!) for purchasing the birds to be released into various areas of the province. Without this continued support, the program would not be the success that it is.
