This is a 3-4hr hunt, depending on weather. On hotter days in the fall – above 70*F, this trip will be limited to the amount of time the dog(s) can tolerate the heat. Be prepared to walk, as pheasants on public land in Wisconsin are notoriously crafty. The terrain, depending on location, is usually mild. We have covered up to 7 miles on this hunt in the past. Limited to 2 guests, $50 per guest. Includes how two methods to clean a pheasant and a cooking course of the guest(s) choice. Battered and fried pheasant with a side of mac n cheese is always popular; we also offer a creamy pheasant and wild rice soup with homemade bread option that is phenomenal.
This experience involves a lot of walking and can be very fast paced. We recommend a very good pair of waterproof boots, a good pair of brush pants, and excellent socks. Weather in WI varies wildly, so plan accordingly for 70F – 30F. We will pre-determine a location to meet and will meet in the DNR parking lot of the chosen starting property. Guide can pick you up if necessary, depending on where you are staying.
The gun that fits the best – can borrow a shotgun from the outfitter, I have multiple 12gauges and a 20g
Shotguns preferred, could use a bow
$50 per guest, up to two guests. $50 per gun to rent Guide can purchase shells ahead of time for guests. Guests would be responsible for reimbursing guide the cost of the shells.
All Accommodations are at the choice of the guest. We can make recommendations for all situations, air-bnb / VRBO are usually a great option in our area for a comfortable place to stay.
Disabled hunters COULD be accommodated, depending on their mobility – IE wheelchairs on tracks would not be a problem.
We could end up walking 6-7 miles on this hunt, so be prepared to carry up to 10lbs – between gun, shells, water, and snacks
