This beautiful Ring-Necked Pheasant is part of a large flock being raised at a game ranch down the road from mom's place.

I saw a ring-necked pheasant in the yard across the street this week, just after the snow came. I had never seen one on the loose around here (although we used to hear them at the farm), and then I see one right in town! But the only picture I got was the wing marks in the snow where he took off.

What is a game ranch? It doesn't sound good.

My uncle has a few of these in an enclosed pen with his chickens.

No, it's not what I'd call a fun place, the owner raises these for hunters who pay a fee to shoot them on his ranch. Like shooting ducks in a barrel I'd say.

Were you "yumming" the pheasant or Vivacious Vegan? Watch out friend, as you probably know by now, "Hell hath no wrath like a woman's scorn".
