PA Pheasant Hunt

A few weeks ago, I took my nephew, a neighbor and an old friend on a semi-annual pheasant hunt in the Altoona area. We shot 29 birds and had a great time. I am trying to post pictures of the group, birds and dogs. It was a great time and I watched my nephew shoot his first birds on the wing. My nephew shoots a lot of trap so he was an instant hunting success.

This place we hunted is a regulated shooting ground with over 500 acres and they put out 20,000 birds a year. What makes them different is that they keep putting out birds throughout the 9-month hunting season.

All the best...
Gil

More bird hunts this year

The old regulars are going out again this fall. We are booked for early November and will try to get a second fall hunt scheduled. Some of us remember the "good old days" when there were native pheasants around to be hunted. Those days are gone. If you want to hunt pheasants today in Pennsylvania it is stocked birds or nothing. Take care. All the best...

Gil,

I think you are getting some fine PA pheasant shooting. What is the cost these days for each shooing ground pheasant? Does that price per bird cover cleaning, plucking and prep for the trek home?

It depends

Adam,
The package deal covers a 40-bird hunt, dog handler, staying in the lodge, cleaning the birds and packing them in ice for about $1,800.00. The cost per bird is about $35 per each. For four hunters it comes out to about $450 per hunter for a two-day hunt. It is my favorite hunt. All the best...
