The different breeds of pheasant living in Central-Europe are the mixture of the Asian Pheasant subspecies. The pheasant is the most eurytopic small game in Hungary. The pheasant shooting is the most popular collective hunting in the fall. 1,5-2 million pheasant will be put out every year and 5-700000 will be bagged.
The most common way of hunting is by foot. A smaller group of hunters with a few game keepers and the well-trained dogs comb through banks of small canals and reed spots along the creeks. The hunters have the chance to shoot some hares and wild ducks too.
The ideal habitats of pheasant are agricultural fields divided by forest strips, wet reed spots and calm willow thickets. The pheasant shooting can be varied with hare and duck shooting at the same time.
