Michigan Grassland Coalition

Ring-necked pheasant

The DNR is partnering with Pheasants Forever, Michigan United Conservation Clubs, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, local conservation districts and other conservation organizations. These groups are working together to improve habitat and increase the number of Michigan pheasants. This initiative, formerly known as the Michigan Pheasant Restoration Initiative, has the potential to change small game hunting opportunities. It should also increase wildlife populations, improve hunter satisfaction and help Michigan's economy.
