Another big advantage we have is our birds! Please allow me a minute to talk about pen raised birds. I know many of you have hunted at other preserves and have experienced less than stellar flight performance from "their" birds. This leads many hunters to say things like: "Pen raised birds are junk, they can't fly and they act like chickens." A lot of these performance issues have to do with the genetics of the bird, the conditions in which the birds are kept and also the food they are fed. Our pheasants are the smaller Chinese Ringnecks. Some people call them "bluebacks." Whatever you call them they are the fastest, wildest and best performing pheasants you will find at any preserve. We raise them in isolation, feed them only high quality game bird feed and maintain large flight pens so the birds look and perform just like any wild pheasant you might find anywhere in North America. You don't have to take my word for it look at our Testimonials Page and see what our clients have said about their hunt and our birds.
Our Chukar Partridge are a cross between European Red Leg Partridge and the Eurasian Chukar Partridge. They are a hybrid cross that we feel out performs the pure bred chukar. Our bird is slightly smaller than the pure bred chukar and much wilder! The Red Leg genes seem to impart a characteristic that makes these birds want to hide in the cover better and explode into fight when flushed. Give them a try, we think you will agree they are not your average Chukar!

It took a number of seasons to establish the habitat and cover we wanted to make the upland paradise we envisioned but today we are proud to say: No one can can offer you a better hunting experience than we can. The reason we can say this is what we call:
