What size shell is best for pheasant?

Shotgun Shot Size 4, 5, 6, and 7 1/2 shot Each morning as we greet people and get them checked in, there is a list of typical questions that we ask. We might ask if their dogs are ready to go, or if they need a description of their area and its boundaries.

  • One question we usually ask before they walk away though is if they have enough shells.
  • That question, if answered with a yes, is followed with this question: Are they hunting loads? Many times, people look at us confused, because they didn’t stop to think if they needing something different from what they normally shoot.We’d like to address that, and hopefully explain the reasoning behind it.All shotgun loads, no matter the caliber, are loaded with different size of shot, or BB’s.

The larger the number, the smaller the BB’s will be. All sizes of shot have different uses, and have times when they should (and should not!) be used. We aren’t going to go over all sizes of shot, but rather we will address the most common size of shells used for pheasant hunting.7 ½ and 8 shotThese are some of the smallest shot we commonly see.

  1. It is the cheapest to buy, so some hunters buy it not realizing it is NOT what is recommended for bird hunting out here.
  2. Some use it for small birds, such as quail and doves, but when it comes to pheasants, it simply doesn’t cut it out here.
  3. Its best use will be up on our clay range for target practice on clay pigeons.Best use: Target practice and skeet shooting6 shotThe lightest of all the pheasant loads we sell, 6 shot is the next step up from the target loads.

This lighter load is a good load to use in early fall, before first frosts have set in, when the birds have not fully feathered up. After they have fully feathered up, however, 6 shot is not as effective. Best use: Early fall hunting5 Shot5 shot is the most common size of load for pheasant hunting.

It is a great load that will carry you through the year. It be something that you can use from September, when are season starts, through the winter, and clear until the end of March when our season wraps up. It has good penetration on the pheasant and chukars’ layers of thick winter feathers, and will bring down whatever upland game you can hit.Best use: Yearlong upland hunting4 ShotThis is the heaviest load that we sell at PVHP.

It is twice as heavy and as large as 8 shot, and has the weight to drop anything you may be shooting at. Because it is a bigger load, it can do more damage to the meat on your birds, so it should be used with that understanding. However, on windy and stormy days, 4 shot is a great load to cut through the bitter wind and still be able to bring your game down.

  1. Best use: Cold winter and stormy weather huntingShould you have any questions as to what load would be best for your hunt, any of us at PVHP would be glad to answer your question.
  2. We also stock all of the loads that have been named, so should you ever need some shells for hunting, you can pick them up here when you come out for a hunt.

We look forward to seeing you! : Shotgun Shot Size

What does a Czech nymph imitate?

Flies for European Nymphing Classic flies for Czech nymphing are called Bobesh’s – this original Czech name we do not translate throughout all of the patterns because the name Czech nymph has quickly spread and now it is widely used when referring to the flies.

Just imagine that someone asks what you are using and you have to tell them a Bobesh. They are going to wonder what planet you are from! Czech nymphs are weighted flies tied on grub style hooks that imitate fresh water shrimp or case-less larvae of caddis flies. These imitative as well as super flashy patterns called clowns are tied mostly in size 8 – 16.

Their characteristic sign is a rounded (bent) grub hook, that is weighted with lead wire, lead tape and/or a tungsten bead. The body is created from natural Hare or Squirrel dubbing or a synthetic dubbing like Sow-Scud or Life Cycle. Another typical feature of a Czech nymph is the back, made from latex strips or a material with similar characteristics like clear plastic bags or Thin Skin.

For ribbing under the back material, Krystal Flash or Flashabou is used and for the ribbing on top of the back material, monofilament or colored wire is a great choice to give you that realistic segmentation. A real Czech nymph is always tied very thin so that it will sink quickly towards the bottom and there is usually some sort of “hot spot” incorporated into the fly.

This is really important because it is a drastic color change that will entice the fish to strike. The first Czech nymphs were tied from materials that would bring smiles to faces of today’s fly tiers. Imagine a plastic foam body from a kitchen sponge, horsehair ribbing and a shellback from a salami skin.

The use of grub style hooks gave the Czech nymph its characteristic shape and the original thicker patterns gave way to thinner, heavier patterns with the introduction of new materials that were readily available to the Czechs. In the beginning, imitative patterns were preferred, like scuds and caddis larvae but as time progressed and more and more anglers began experimenting, really colorful patterns began to emerge and work really well, especially on European Grayling.

Original single color bodies were enriched with various color or hot spots and eventually graduated to flies that are so colorful, the really do not imitate any natural insects in the river. European Woven nymphs have been used over the years with great success, especially by former World Champion fly fisherman, Vladi Trzebunia.

What does a humpy fly imitate?

Fly Tying: The Yellow Humpy My favorite backcountry attractor dry fly might be the venerable humpy. Tied in yellow or red (or even “royal” fashion), the Humpy is a high-floating dry fly that imitates a host of bugs, from larger mayflies to caddis, but doesn’t exactly resemble anything in particular.

It just looks buggy. And backcountry trout in austere environments absolutely love them. They can be a bit tricky to tie at the vise, but if you follow Matt Grobert’s method in the video above, and listen Tim Flagler’s narration, you’ll get it down pretty quickly with maybe only a fly or two landing the “reject box.” This is the time of year to spend tying your summer bugs, and the Humpy ought to be in every fly fisher’s box come dry-fly season.

Do you need split shot with nymph?

A few years ago, we introduced a new weekly “Ask the Experts” Column and asked you to pose some questions for our panel of experts. Our latest question comes from an anonymous reader, who asked: “How do you know how many and what size split shot to use?” I put the question to our panel of experts, and their answers are below.

If you’ve got a question you’d like to ask our panel, write it in the comments section below, Joe Demalderis, Cross Current Guide Service (Milford, Pennsylvania) : The first thing to ask yourself is, do I even need to use split shot? Maybe a tandem nymph rig with a nice heavy point fly–edible weight instead of a ball or three of tin or tungsten crimped on your leader–and some diligent mending will get your fly in the zone it needs to be in.

Or even two heavy flies. But, sometimes not, so out comes the split shot. How much and how big becomes an educated guess based on past experience–and depth and current speed, and whether you’re packing lighter tin shot or heavier tungsten shot. Take your best guess, and then use a little less than you think and see how it goes.

You can always add another shot or two or go bigger. Now having said that, think about foregoing split shot for added weight and get a container of reusable non-toxic tungsten putty. You can shape it how you want, so it’s less likely to hang up; and if it does, you can usually pull free and just lose a bit of putty instead of a fly or two.

You can also use it to turn an unweighted, non-beadhead fly into a beadhead by simply making a little ball with the stuff and jamming it on the eye of the hook. In the past, I had issues with sink putty getting all gooey on the leader, especially when it was in the sun.

When I took it off, the leader would be slimed with it too. For quite awhile I stayed away from using it because of that. Then I switched from brand X and started using the Orvis putty, and the problem was eliminated. It’s the best I’ve found. So give the putty a serious consideration. It doesn’t mess up your leader, it goes on easy and comes off the same way, and you’re not in danger of breaking a tooth.

(I know: you shouldn’t bite split shot to crimp it, but hey, we’ve all done it at one time or another.) If it turns out you don’t like it, go back up to the first two paragraphs and carry on. It’s all about how to sink your flies, so use the method that best floats your boat.

Determine where in the water column you want your flies to ride. Determine the approximate depth of the water you intend to fish. Gauge the current speed and decide what size (weight) split shot to start with. Keep in mind the current is always faster near the surface and that it’s most important to have your flies quickly penetrate the first 24 inches of the water column in faster currents. Give it your best guess and always stay lighter from the start since you can always add more shot if necessary. Make a cast upstream with just your leader and watch how quickly your split shot and flies sink. If your chosen split shot didn’t penetrate the water column and get your flies down to the depth you desire, add more. Adding more shot can mean another shot of the same size, a smaller one, or a bigger size. That will all depend on conditions. After you’ve added what you think is the appropriate size and number of additional split shot, make another cast upstream with just the leader, watch your gear, and see what you think. Continue adding or removing split shot until you notice your flies are riding at the depth you desire. It really shouldn’t take more than a few casts.

Maggie Mae Monaghan, The Tackle Shop Outfitters (Ennis, Montana) : Using the correct amount of weight or split shot is crucial when nymph fishing. Water depth, current speed, and the weight of the flies are three things to assess when adding weight. If I am fishing with large stonefly patterns or streamers, I will not add much split shot.

If I have smaller flies and am fishing a deep, slow moving hole, then I like to add weight. There have been multiple times where I have been fishing and not getting any strikes because I did not have the correct amount of weight on and was not getting my fly down where it needed to be. The second I put split shot, BAM! Fish! I would rather add a larger split shot such as a #4 or #3 than adding a bunch of smaller split shot.

I feel it’s easier to cast one large one, versus casting many small split shot. I also notice it’s easier to adjust one larger split shot and change out. I will add enough weight to where I am knocking the bottom occasionally and getting stuck. If it’s getting stuck too much, then I simply adjust to smaller weight.

I like to carry various sizes, and lots of it! Next time you’re out nymph fishing and you’re not getting any strikes, add some weight and see what happens! Doc Thompson, High Country Anglers (Ute Park, New Mexico) : My basic theory is if I don’t hang up on bottom every now and then, I probably need more weight.

Basically the amount of weight is dictated by depth and speed of water. Deep fast current water usually requires more weight than the same depth water that is a slow current. Start a little light then add as you need it. Brown Hobson, Brown Trout Fly Fishing (Asheville, North Carolina) : The number one thing for me is that trout are much more likely to eat something above them than below.

  • So too much shot might be the worst situation to be in.
  • I do find trout will pick flies like eggs and leeches off the bottom in winter, but that is really the only time I want flies rolling across the bottom.
  • If the trout are down low, I will add shot until I hit bottom or get bites.
  • If I hit bottom, I’ll back off a few pieces of shot with my goal being right above the bottom.

By starting light, if fish are suspended, I’ll find out before I get below them. Oftentimes in early spring, I’ll be fishing super heavy, like maybe two AB weights, all morning. After lunch, I will have lost my bite. What I’ve learned is that often fish have come off the bottom to eat swimming bugs and I’m now below them.

  1. I’ll take almost all the shot off or switch to a dry-dropper and be back in fish.
  2. Mike Canady, Ellensburg Angler (Ellensburg, Washington) : That is a great question, as we are always playing with split shot here on the Yakima.
  3. When we get to a deeper bucket, we will definitely add another shot or two, depending on the depth.

If we are ticking the bottom a lot, we will take a little off, but if we aren’t ticking bottom in the deeper buckets, we will add another shot. But I would say that, over the day while fishing from a drift boat and covering lots of water, we usually keep the same amount of split on.

Do you need split shot on a nymph rig?

When to Use Split Shot on Your Nymph Rigs – Adding split shot to your nymph rig is a convenient way to get your flies to sink. With a wide range of split shot sizes available, adjusting your rig’s sink rate and depth is as easy as moving to a larger size shot or simply crimping on a few additional small ones.

  • Using split shot instead of weighted flies also gives you a lot of flexibility in customizing how your flies ride in the water.
  • With a typical, crimping your split shot above your flies will cause them to ride very close to the river bottom, more or less in a horizontal line.
  • If you crimp the split shot between the two flies, however, you’ll have one that rides higher and one that trails behind lower.

Another great option is to crimp your split shot below both flies off a short section of tippet known as a “drop shot rig” which keeps your split shot in contact with the bottom and the flies at two different depths. Split shot also affords the ability to fish unweighted flies of any size at practically any depth. Pheasant Tail Nymph Resepti using split shot with nymphs flies While there are many benefits to using split shot, there are also some downsides. One concern is that continuously adding and removing split shot can damage your leader and create weak spots vulnerable to breakage. In terms of performance, if you place your split shot above your flies, your strike detection sensitivity will be slightly compromised as the fish will have to move the split shot for you to feel it.

How far down should indicator nymph rig be?

As a general rule, rig your nymphing system with the indicator and the weight separated by 11/2 times the water depth. If the water is 2 feet deep, then the indicator should be 3 feet above your weight. For water deeper than 3 feet, double the distance: 3 feet of water, 6 feet between the weight and indicator.

Do you hang pheasant by head or feet?

A Guide to Plucking Pheasants To hang or not to hang? The theory behind hanging a bird is to make the meat more tender and add depth of flavour. This is particularly the case for muscly old cock birds that have wandered the fields and hedgerows for a couple of seasons, flying out from under the feet of unsuspecting walkers and strutting their stuff in the spring to impress the local hens! But for the sporting young birds so many of us will now shoot, hanging is a question of personal taste.

So now you have shot your bird, how do you go about hanging a pheasant? In the ideal world, you should try to cool the bird as soon as possible after its been shot, so stuffing them into a game bag or piling them into the boot of your 4×4 for the rest of the day is not ideal – even if often unavoidable! Do inspect your birds before you hang them.

If you find that any of them have been shot in the gut or badly torn in the retrieve, then skin or butcher these straight away for cooking or freezing. At the end of a day’s shooting, we hang our pheasants in braces, from a beam in a shed using twine around the neck.

We leave the pheasants completely intact (not plucked or gutted) and hang them by the neck to keep the blood in the carcass. This helps prevent the meat from drying out or freezing if temperatures drop dramatically. We usually leave our birds to hang for a maximum of 3 days. We find that the younger members of the family prefer the milder taste of a pheasant that hasn’t hung around too long.

For old cock birds, we tend to breast these and label the freezer bags accordingly – I use these for my long, slow cook recipes so it becomes deliciously tender during the cooking process.

  • I’m not completely convinced, but some people say that the bird becomes even more flavoursome if left hanging for up to 7 days, I suppose it depends how ‘gamey’ you like your meat – but you would really need to watch the outdoor temperatures especially in the mild winters we’ve experienced recently.
  • Preparing your bird for the freezer or oven
  • Plucking

If we have had a good day and there are a lot of birds, I don’t think it is ever too young to learn to pluck your first bird – all the family get involved. Many hands make light work! Most importantly, any young or novice guns should definitely be encouraged to pluck their own bird.

It really reinforces the idea that shooting is not just about the sport, but about respect for the birds and the satisfaction to be gained from preparing and eating the just rewards of all your hard work! You’ll find it is much easier to pluck a bird when it is warm – if it has been hanging in your shed or game larder bring it inside to reach room temperature before you start.

Plucking a bird is a messy business, feathers can get everywhere. I remember my mother taking our birds ‘for a walk’ – she would head off up the hill with a bird in her hand and pluck as she walked leaving the feathers to blow away in the wind! A much simpler and handy tip is to pluck the bird directly into a plastic carrier bag or bin bag.

Depending on the weather (and the number and age of plucking assistants!), you may want to do this outside. Put your bag in a sink, or put a clean bin liner in a big kitchen bin, pull up a seat, draw up the sides of the bag and hold the bird inside. Feathers will still escape, so I recommend putting a few sheets of newspaper down too.

It can help to slightly dampen your hands when plucking so that the feathers stick to your hands rather than floating up to tickle your nose or down to stick to your clothes. Hold the pheasant by its legs and back comb the feathers (against the grain), so they are proud of the bird.

  1. Using short downwards movements, pluck the feathers away from the bird – straight into the bag.
  2. If you find you are pulling away skin from the bird, then you are being too rough.
  3. Don’t give up, you’ll soon find a technique and rhythm that works for you.
  4. Now hold the body of the bird and pull out the tail feathers one at time.

For the legs, pluck the feathers away and down from the bird (but this time ‘with the grain’). To remove the lower legs, run a sharp knife around the first leg joint, and cut through the main (hamstring) tendon. Then pull the foot away firmly until it comes off, taking the smaller tendons with it.

Look out for the spurs on older cock birds – they’re sharp and can hurt! To remove the wings, feel where the wing meets the body and cut them off as close to the joint as you can. Gutting First, cut off the head at the base of the neck with a pair of scissors. If you don’t have a decent pair of scissors, place the bird on a chopping board and with a sharp knife chop through the neck right where it enters the body cavity.

Strip out the gullet, crop and windpipe by inserting a finger, rotating it gently to loosen and break all attachments. With a sharp knife nick a slice in the skin above the vent of the bird until it comes loose. Reach in to the body cavity with two to three fingers and draw out the intestines, gizzard, heart, coagulated blood, etc – discard these (although you may want to keep the liver).

  1. With practice you will be able to pull the guts of the bird out in one go.
  2. Check that nothing has been left behind.
  3. Wash and dry the bird all over including the body cavity.
  4. Skinning a pheasant Does that all sound too much like hard work? Well there is a quicker and easier option, but it will mean you can’t roast your bird unless you coat it in fat or bacon.

Cut the head, wings and feet off the pheasant as described above. Having removed the tail feathers, cut the whole tail off, including the bird’s vent. Place the bird down breast side up and make a cut in the skin just under the breastbone. Work your fingers under the skin and pull it apart from the breast and ease it off all the way round.

  1. Next gut and clean the bird as above, before butchering, cooking or freezing.
  2. Breasting a pheasant
  3. If you are really pressed for time or if you only need the pheasant breasts, a quick alternative is to,

To do this, lay the bird on its back on a flat surface (a chopping or draining board) and spread the wings. Pinch the loose skin on the body cavity between your fingers, lift it up and away from the flesh and slide a sharp knife in. Cut the skin straight down the middle from the neck to the vent, then pull the skin away from the flesh discarding any yellow fat (it’s bitter to taste).

Is 4 shot too big for pheasant?

Velocity & Ounce Size for Pheasant & Quail Hunting – Even if the shells you purchase are top of the line, there is no reason to have 1300+ feet per second lead loads to harvest upland birds, especially in 12 ga. heavy loads. Some manufacturers making these loads are sponsors for upland hunting tv shows which entices newbies that don’t pheasant or quail hunt much to buy them.

The extra recoil is unnecessary, unpleasant, will eventually cause a flinching problem for the shooter, and they will not kill a pheasant or quail any deader than a standard velocity hunting load. Some specialty loads with semi-exotic names (Prairie “Butt Kickers” for example) are great for pheasant drives with long shots taken on wild flushes or over flushing bird dogs, but the quality of the pheasant for the table is sadly lacking.

They tend to look like someone went postal on them with a large bore screwdriver. I have tried those in 12 ga. with 1 ¼ oz. of shot pushed at 1500 fps. I took two boxes with me on a pheasant hunting trip and shot exactly 2 of them, killing 2 pheasants before I made it back to the truck and swapped them out for my standard loads. Pheasant Tail Nymph Resepti Nontoxic shot was mandated by Federal law for waterfowl hunting and has infiltrated some State ran hunting areas for non-migrating species. Nontoxic loads have come a long way since the original mandate. Steel is cheapest and there are some loadings in other metals and combinations of metals that perform as well as or better than lead loads for upland game but are very expensive to say the least.
