Abstract

This study was undertaken in an attempt to determine some of the factors which may influence the survival of Utah game farm-reared pheasants following their release into the wild. The survival of these birds is below the desired level after they are released, as is indicated by the low percentage taken by the sportsmen during the hunting season. In recent years the return from released game farm-reared pheasants is about 7 to 8 percent. Consequently, if survival rate of these birds could be increased, more birds would be available to supplement the wild stock. Also, an increase in the pheasant population throughout the state would make more birds available to sportsmen during the hunting season.
