We encourage you to bring your young hunters. If you are 17 years old and under you may hunt for free with your parent or guardian. Which ever hunt the adult chooses, the bag limit will be shared. There are specials available to increase your bag limits. This will give you a lot more shooting. Youth hunters must also have proof of completing a Hunters Education Course to carry a gun. Father-son or daughter are always a rewarding experience.

The cost of the hunts include our guides and dogs. Past experience has shown us that dogs that hunted over hundreds of birds and guides that know the land make a positive difference.
Those of you wanting to hunt with your own dogs the prices are reduced but we can’t guarantee the same results. Their is a big difference in how many times a dog has been in the field to know how hunts. Experience is the best teacher. We all know young dogs need to be hunted a lot to become the best. The preserve has plenty of birds. This is far better than walking all day hoping to find a couple of birds to train him on. If you want action this is the place to be.
