Abstract

It was the purpose of this study to determine the cover types used by ring- necked pheasants during winter months. Game managers generally acknowledge winter to be the critical season in the life of pheasants, and they realize the importance of adequate winter cover. According to Eggen (1952), the destruction of wildlife habitats has a direct bearing on pheasant populations and, in Kansas, habitat development or cover restoration must be practiced if wildlife areas are to support the maximum number of pheasants. Starvation is not believed to be a limiting factor in the wild (Lyon, 1952).
