Crossed my mind as well but likely they are too high to be hit with shotgun pellets in an effective way.

Came here to say much the same thing; effective shotgun ranges are much less than those for rifled weapons.

Added to which pheasant shoots tend to take place in unpopulated areas, and are likely to be "driven" so that pellet fall can be guaranteed to be in a safe area.
