Year round 




While most people think of pheasant hunting involving traditional ringneck pheasants, Wessex offers some unique colour variations of pheasants which mix up the action it’s exciting to see a pheasant flush and try to decide if it’s one of the unique trophies. While our traditional looking pheasants make excellent wall mounts, the unique colour variations which are available provide an opportunity for some spectacular mounts.



Wessex offers a combination of blueback ringneck pheasants and greenback ringneck pheasants for our hunters. The greenbacks are very similar to our wild birds. The bluebacks are slightly smaller and tend to flush explosively -jumping skyward and then leveling off, while the greenbacks tend to rise slower. The blonde birds (shown below) are similar to the greenbacks in flight. Melanistic pheasants (or crosses) fly similar to the blonde birds and greenbacks, and come in beautiful dark colorations. Hen melanistic pheasants are a rich, nearly chocolate brown color and make striking mounts next to the dark roosters.
