For all Counties, the Game and Fish Department is giving away free seed to land owners who are interested in planting their plot land for pheasants.

Game and Fish is offering a mixed seed for plant diversity.

They say you do not need to have a PLOTS contract but are asking the landowners to allow some public access.

You can sign up online by March 31 if this is something you would like to do, the department will provide enough seed to plant up to 5 acres of land.
