Pheasant season opens tomorrow and will continue through Dec. 31, and the daily limit is a single bird. Compared to past pheasant seasons, this one is pretty thin.Knock out two weeks for deer season, when no one in his right mind would be following a bird dog or busting through heavy cover, Sundays when no hunting is allowed, a couple of days for the muzzleloader deer hunt, Christmas Eve and Day, and a few nasty weather days and the real season length is more like two Saturdays and a handful of weekdays.

I've carried pheasant fever for as long as, well, it's been an awfully long time. We had good populations of ringnecks throughout north-central Maryland right up through the 1970s and I did my best to keep them shot down to a manageable number.There were some around my boyhood home, but the mother lode of Baltimore County pheasants had to have been two adjoining farms near Mount Carmel Road that butted against Prettyboy Reservoir property.The first was owned by my uncle Elm; the second by a bachelor and his sisters.

"I've got to admit that I really didn't think today was going to be as great as it turned out to be. I don't know what I was expecting, but it sure wasn't what we just enjoyed," said local sportsman Dick Broden as we pulled out of the Foxy Pheasant Hunting Preserve last Monday.Pheasant hunting throughout my central Maryland home turf has declined so sharply over the past decade that my former ringneck gunning pals and I don't even bother anymore. Take Carroll County Bank & Trust Company vice president Bob Chrest, for example.

Some say pheasant shooting is more of a sport for dogs and their handlers than for hunters.Though ringnecks are not a particularly difficult target, I'm not convinced.There's something about the harsh cry of a cockbird when flushed (especially as a dog stands by on point) that compensates for its somewhat diminished challenge as a target, though it is capable of a burst of speed approaching a mile a minute -- while its cruising speed is about half that.Thus, it's with a feeling akin to nostalgia that I anticipate Friday's opening of the season.

SUBLETTE, Kan. -- The day starts before dawn, with Kyle Simmons bumping along a frozen field in the back of a red Chevy pickup, the wind abusing him as he yanks a befuddled bird from a cage and chucks it out of the truck.The bird flaps cramped wings, soars, circles, then plops down into a shelter of buffalo grass.Simmons grabs another bird. Yank, chuck, soar, plop.By 8 a.m., Simmons will have dumped about 80 ringneck pheasants into this field. Then the hunters will arrive.This is how pheasant season looks these days across much of the Midwest.

Tavern on the Square has opened in the Canton. It's in the old Fins space. Mel Carter, the general manager and part owner of Blue Hill Tavern , also in Canton, purchased Fins last September and, for a few months, kept things as they were. Right after the new year, Carter says, he closed the property for one week. Fins reopened on Monday with a cosmetic makeover, a new menu and new name. The new interior, Carter says, is decorated with black wood furniture and trim and vintage black-and-white photography of old Baltimore.  Carter describes the menu at Tavern on the Square as "contemporary American bar fare with a focus on game oriented dishes.

Is there an ornithologist in the house? I think I might have seen a wild turkey this morning. No, not the kind in the bottle. That won't happen before 5. On my bike ride into work I saw a kind of bird I had never before seen in these parts. I was on the pathway on the west shore of Jackson Pond in Long Reach. Standing in the grass just off the pathway was a dun-colored critter that, from beak to tailfeathers, was three or four feet long. As I approached, it sauntered behind one of the apartment buildings.

BOONSBORO - Joseph Michael has held invitation-only pheasant hunts on his family farm here for nearly five years. He has casually hunted other birds on the land for as long as he can remember. But high-priced McMansions have sprouted on the farm next door - when all are built, there will be 65 homes with sticker prices of more than $500,000. They bring concerns about bullets being fired so close to those new floor-to-ceiling windows. Situations like this have left officials struggling with questions of whether their rural way of life will have to be curtailed to make room for the suburban living that is coming their way, whether in this case it is too dangerous to allow hunting so close to where more and more outsiders plan to lay their heads.

Funny, you'd think it would please me to walk into Tio Pepe and find it half empty, considering all those times I couldn't get a reservation or had to wait an hour when I did have one. But it just made me sad, as though an era had passed without my noticing it.Then the maitre d' -- about to seat us -- answered the phone, turned his back on us and had a lengthy conversation while we cooled our heels. I felt better. This was Tio Pepe as I remember it.I was there because so many new places have opened up recently I haven't gotten back to the area's older restaurants as often as I used to. But now those restaurants are closing at an alarming rate.

Forester, vice president and development director for River Hill, the 10th and last village being developed in Columbia by the Rouse Co. Pheasant Ridge is one of the village's two neighborhoods.
