your last words are worth to read brother.

few weeks back a guy from bonair who work in my village invited me to hunt at his place in upcoming winter

he also quoted this specific word "Jungli murghi"
i was in doubt but now pretty clear.

thanks for your helpful words.

Best Regards.

KP= Khaiber Pakhtoon Khwa

Its Murgh e Zareen (local name is junglee murghee, IMHO) and our wild life department is working hard (at least on papers) to increase its population in pothohar & Azad Kashmir.
I know one wild life officer who was attached with a hatchery in Lahore and was asigned to transport Murgh e Zareen chicks to Azad Kasmir (story I am writting here was told by himself personaly) on his trip to Azad kashmir he traded more than half of the batch for, Amroods (Guava), lunch at a truck hotel etc :o

We have following types of pheasants in Pakistan

• Ring Necks
• Indian Peafowl
• Western Horned Tragopan Pheasant
• Cheer Pheasant
• Himalayan Monal Pheasant
• Koklass Pheasant
• White Crested Khalij

Rings Necks and peafowls are found in Punjab. Wildlife has established different conservancies for ring necks in Punjab like Kalar Kahar, Pirowal (Khanewal), etc. Wildlife department of Punjab do offer permits for hunting ring necks occasionally. This permits costs around Rs. 10000

Other pheasants are found in the hilly areas from Kashmir to Northern Areas including Maree, Nathia Galli, etc. A few species are also found at upper areas of Margalla hills at the bored of Punjab and Khyber Pakhton Khawa. A few species are also found in the hills of Dir Bala, Kohistan Valley and Chitral

For further details please visit

http://www.wildlifeofpakistan.com/Birds.html

All of these pheasant are protected species and hunting thereof is prohibited. In a few areas like Ayubia national park wildlife department is very active but in the other and area locals not only hunt themselves but also facilitate others hunters for personal relations and benefits………………

In the surroundings and even in some areas within the city of Islamabad grey and black partridges are found in abundant. “Does anyone noticed that how much sound of calling partridges fascinate while hiking at the back side of Bari Imam or gossiping at Shakar Darra or walking in Fatima Jinnah Park, etc. when know the species we are listing”.

Similarly these pheasants multiply beauty of our mountains therefore ……?????????????????????

By the way Afzaal sb.. you have to be extra careful if you go for the hunt as there are leopards in the jungle.

Good Link Zarar.I have been keeping Ring necks as pets from the last 10 years.Once i had more then 50 eggs tried to incubate but the chicks didnt came out.Once i got successful when the eggs were kept under a Hen :D
The pair of a Ring neck was available around 3000 but now it costs 5000.Golden Pheasants are around 15000 per pair and silver costs 8000.

Yep you are right. During daytime one can see dead pheasants on every road side/highway in UK. They normally sit on the road at night and get hit by cars.

pheasants are called paigar and are different from jungli murghi which is called jungli kukar in the north, murgh e zareen is also different male is more beautiful with long tail female is callee lainth they are found in naraan valley, jungli kukar can be found even in moderate temp like huripur, pheasants are also sighted in galyat area though huntung them is not legal so is the case with mrgh e zareen, jungle murghi is called re jungle fowl in english.
