Our shooting preserve hunts are by far our most popular. The methods we use to run our shooting preserves make it impossible to tell the difference between our wild and released birds. The most popular package we sell is our two hunt package. Hunt the afternoon of the first day, stay the night in Tallgrass lodge, hunt the next morning, and depart that afternoon for a great two day hunt.
Free Extra Birds: Any lost birds remaining in the shooting preserves from previous hunts may be harvested by your group at no cost. Availability of extra birds is not guaranteed. The number of groups in front of you and their shooting ability will dictate extra bird availability.
If you wish to continue hunting you may add additional birds to your hunt for a fee of $80 for 4 pheasant, or 6 chukar, or 10 quail. Please give me two weeks notice for extra birds.
We would be happy to process your birds, vacuum pack them, and freeze them for your trip for the fee of $1.50 per quail and $2.50 per pheasant. You are more than welcome to process your own birds if you wish.
Planted Birds Only: We would be happy to plant birds in one of our Controlled Shooting Areas for you to do a do it yourself hunt, or just tune up your dogs, for a fee or $80 for 4 pheasant, or 6 chukar or 10 quail.
We have a kennel full of very experienced and very talented hunting dogs. However you are more than welcome to bring your own dogs. There is nothing like spending the day afield with your own dogs. Harvesting birds is great but spending the day watching hunting dogs do what they love best is why we are really out there. There is no greater rush than having three or four pointing dogs locked up at once.
