Have your butcher bone out pheasant in one piece, cutting open back. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Combine pecans, cherries, cornbread and stock; season to taste with salt and pepper. Season pheasant inside and out; fill it up with stuffing. Roll up pheasant to fully enclose stuffing and place in a roasting pan, seam-side down. Wrap bacon securely around bird, tucking it under to secure. Roast until an instant-reading thermometer inserted in thigh area registers 180 degrees F, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer roulade to a serving platter and slice at table.
