Tom Dedmon Raising Pheasants
For Release In Cleveland County
Tom Dedmon, enterprising young
fAfmer living on the northeastern
edge "of the city, is raising pheasants
Mid Is dotns It on a more extensive
settle than any one else in the
ecrontv. PT-edsent rrlslng is en
eAiire^d bv the game division of
the Stale Deonrtnvnt of Conser

two-fold nurppse of increasing the
supply of wild i>«mp nod dc'trov
liHt tnseots which do untold damage
to fir'd and garden crops.
Ti'e rtngn"ok verletv is the most
p-Ulflo rn it is this variety wh'eh
Mr. Demon is sBe*',e'i,',nff on. Th»
male bird is bcauti'ul with a varied
B'sortment.^f brlerhf fenthers while
the female is speckled and drab
like the wild quail. A full grown
pheasant weighs from two and a
half to three pounds end makes a
delicious dish of white meat In
their native haunts thev rove the
woods and fields and destroy the
insect* which are the most costly
menace to growing drops.
Many Tairs Kelrased.
Already Mr. Dedrnon has released
about 80 pairs in varluos sections
of the county and a check-up re
veals that they are thriving and
multiplying. He has about 40 birds

oi* hand and 1* speculating now on
the sale of eggs for hatching, sell
ing the eggs at reduced prices to
get them started on the game pre
serves of the county. There has
never been an open hunting season
for pheasants in Cleveland county,
but Game Warden H. C. "Shorty’'
l,ong„sa.Vfc the State game warden
will no-doubt declare a short open
season In a few years when pheas
ants become more plentiful. Then
the sportsmen will enjoy a form of
hunting to which they have not
been accustomed for many years.
• A pheasant hen will lay about 60
eggs during the laying season. She
may go as high as 105 In a season.
Mr. Dedmon gets his hatches under
bantam hens for they make good
mothers and are more constantly
on duty during the setting period.
This is the best method while the
birds are in captivity. Of course
when they arc released, the pheas
ant hen docs her own setting and
caring for her young. When they
are released the pheasants usually
roam around on the farms where
they belong and keep in droves like
partridges. The pheasant eggs are
bluish gray, somewhat smaller in
size than a guinea egg.
Farmers declare the pheasant to
be one of the most valuable wild
birds for insect eaters and for de
licious .meat. Many farmers visit
the Dedmon pheasant farm and
study the birds. Mr. Dedmon Is an
authority on raiding them and has
done more than any other individ
ual In the county to encourage their
propagation throughout the coun
