Extensive pheasant (Phasianus colchicus)population surveys were begun by the Wisconsin Conservation Department in the years following World War II. Among their objectives were the provision of information on: (1) the regional pattern of population distribution and productivity in the state and the relations of these to habitat characteristics; (2) short-term fluctuations and the mechanisms and factors involved; and (3) the extent of hunting take and its effect on the populations.
