Grosse Pointe is about as urban as it can be with Detroit suburbs all around
them. They have quite a few pheasants running around there and I think it's
quite unlikely that a commercial breeding farm or a hunting sort of place
is within many miles of there.

Geddes Lake condo complex is not too different from Grosse Pointe in that it
is surrounded by lots of trees as well as lots of houses and developments
and near major highway with lots of traffic. I can't think of any hunting
type place anywhere near there. It's not too far from our place of business
on Plymouth Rd.

If you're interested in a better picture, Google Earth will give it to you.
Just type Geddes Lake Condominium into the search box and the next think you
know, you'll be looking at it from high above.

Sometimes these are escapees, not breeding wild. Are you anywhere near a
hunting sort of place?
Or there are people and places, some relatively small scale, that breed to
sell to "hunting" places.
You'd be surprised where some places are.
