Hunt

I have been to similar pheasant hunts, they are a blast.

Show me birds

This was 2 years ago up in Baxter Springs KS. This was a European hunt. Google it, great fun but a little costly. I've gone 3 times and twice the president of my company picked up the tab. So much fun that I jumped at a third chance at my cost. All in for a 500 bird hunt was $750 and change. The wife said no more. The basic idea is 20 hunters at 10 hunting stations unleash hell as they release the birds. Not as easy as it sounds. They are flying high and fast and you can only use #6 shot or smaller. I shot about 190 12 gauge that day. My shoulder was black and blue for a week. That hunt I got 12 birds I think. Like I said, not as easy as first thought.

I was sore for a week, great fun though. I was using my grandfather's auto 5 and that recoil system kicked my butt after a case of shells. It's worth a try even if you aren't any good with a shot gun.

Yes they hatch and raise all of the pheasant. They also have quail and chuker. As you pull up to the ranch, you park right by the pens. They have miles of fields for regular field hunts. It's a nice well run place.

I didn't know that they had duck operations like this, sounds fun too. I never really got into duck hunting. Deer was always my favorite. I did like to hunt quail on our farm, but my grandfather treated the quail like pets so I stopped hunting them out of respect. I like the Show Me Birds set up because it's putting more birds out there then what is being taken out.
