We have been hearing that some people believe the Allegany County Pheasant Program has been receiving government funding. We are not! The day old chicks are presently provided by the DEC and raised at the jail through the Inmate Working Program. All funding for feed and equipment has come through grants, donations, raffles and volunteer work. The sheriff’s Office provides the location to raise the birds and store equipment when not in use. All birds are released on property that is open to the general public to hunt on during the pheasant hunting season – none are sold or given to any private organization. We are always open to accepting donations – without them, this organization will fold! We are always looking for members to get involved and help with this program - without you we will FAIL!
Please refer to the History page for information on how the program has worked.
What We Do
The Program partners with organizations which include the New York State DEC and others who use scientific and environmental strategies and techniques.
