Pheasant Hunt Information

Our pheasant hunting begins September 29th, 2018. Reservations are limited, to guarantee a hunt book your reservation soon. A discounted price per bird is available if your reservation is paid in full before September 21st, 2018.

  • Regular price: $22.00 per bird.

Pheasant Minimums

  • There is a 10 bird minimum per hunt on weekday mornings.
  • There is a 20 bird minimum per weekday afternoon or weekend hunt.

Field Guides

For safety reasons, guides are mandatory on each hunt.

  • Guide Per Hunt – $50.00
  • Guide & Preserve Dog – $80.00

General Rules and Guidelines

  • No license required
  • There is a maximum of 5 guns per field. We have found that 4 guns per field are ideal and what we prefer.
  • If you cancel a hunting date, you must call before 6:00 a.m. the day of the scheduled hunt or the birds will be charged against your account.
  • Should we get early winter snow, making it difficult to hunt, the owner of the preserve will be the sole factor in deciding when we will close for the season. Any birds not shot by that time will be processed, and the cost paid by the client.
  • There will be no refund of money, and birds will not be carried over to the following year. No exceptions.

Additional Info

If you would like to shoot a round of sporting clays before your hunt please let us know in advance.


Our Sporting Clays range is one of the most beautiful and interesting ranges in the entire state. Spread out over 450 acres of wooded terrain 20 minutes north of Duluth.
