The Cherokee County Chapter of Pheasants Forever has free shelled corn for wildlife in the county available. The wagon of shelled corn is located in the parking lot of Hy-Vee Food Store in Cherokee. Bring a pail and help yourself.

Chapter President Tim Haupert notes that with the snow cover experienced this winter, many of the smaller wildlife are struggling to find necessary food. Haupert cautions all to be aware of where they are feeding the smaller birds and animals, to make them less susceptible to predatory animals such as hawks.

Haupert advises they be fed in sheltered areas, including evergreen groves or thickets.

If you would like more information about this or any other Cherokee County Pheasants Forever programs, contact Tim Haupert at 225-4139 or 225-2711, or any other chapter members.
