From 2007 to 2009 nearly 1,000 wild pheasants were released in the Wild Pheasant
Recovery Area that includes parts of Montour, Columbia, and Northumberland counties.
This area is now closed to pheasant hunting until further notice. The area is
also closed to dog training from the first Sunday in February until July 31st. This
closed area includes hunting areas around PPL in Montour County. Please see the
link at bottom of the page for a map of the closed area.
Game lands 226 near Millville and 252 near Allenwood will receive additional game
farm birds for hunters who cannot hunt in the closed areas.
