European Pheasant Hunt

Our European pheasant hunt course is set up in a timbered area. The release tower is in the center of the timber. Ten shooting stations surround the tower in a large circle. Some of the shoot stations are in the open and others are nestled in the timber. We will release 1/10 of the birds, and then shooters rotate to a new station. (Shooters will shoot at all ten stations.) As pheasant are released they fly tree-top high, 40- mph past the shooting stations. This is a ‘shoot’; bring five boxes of shells and a trigger finger ready to fire! Three hundred pheasant will be released – we will see how many you can bring down.

$410.00 per shooter

The above cost is for fifteen pheasant per shooter. There are twenty shooters per shoot making a 300 pheasant release. A $75.00 non-refundable deposit is required and will be applied to the total cost of the shoot. Contact us to be placed on the shooter list and we will notify you of shoot dates. Individuals and groups are welcome.
