Country Sport Scotland - Pheasant

Pheasant

The pheasant forms the backbone of both driven and walked up game shooting in Scotland today.

Native to Asia and the extreme south-eastern tip of Europe, the pheasant has been widely introduced across Europe and North America. It was known to the Romans, who may have introduced it to Britain. The Normans certainly kept it to supply food. It naturally adapts to a broad variety of habitats. In the UK they are usually found in woodland, hedgerows, field margins and open farmland with adjacent cover. Large numbers are reared and released into managed woods well before the shooting season starts, and provide sport for many days’ shooting, both large and small. Pheasants that are shot make excellent eating and are widely available at butchers and supermarkets. The habitats managed for them are valuable for a wide range of other wildlife species and enrich the countryside.
