Drier than average conditions have persisted

Reports have been coming in across pheasant range: dry conditions have persisted after the peak hatch, leading many to wonder if the forage base of insects was sufficient to provide that critical protein for those young and growing chicks. Habitat quality could also be in jeopardy in some places that are especially short of rain. For your convenience, Pheasants Forever has consolidated Drought Monitor Reports for states across pheasant range.
