The hunt will begin at 12:00 p.m. for the first week and 10:00 a.m. for the rest of the season. If you are an early riser, feel free to grab some fresh coffee, watch some t.v., or get your dog ready for the day. Sometimes the hunts last all day and sometimes they only last a couple hours, depending on how the birds are and mainly on how the shooters are. For groups with 5 or less hunters, we may combine them together depending on the availability.
With over 4,000 acres, there is plenty of land to make sure that there is a different type of hunt every day. Please remember that you are coming here to hunt, so we can not guarantee you will get your limit every day. All of this will depend on many factors such as the weather, the dogs, the pheasants, and obviously how well the hunters can shoot.
*** For those of you that are bringing dogs, we do ask that you keep them from roaming around the lodge. Males tend to mark their area which creates all kinds of problems. Females that are in heat WILL NOT BE ALLOWED for obvious reasons. We do ask that the dogs stay in the run area or in a kennel. ***
