The dry springs across the Midwest has hurt the pheasant hunting across the prime ground from Colorado to Illinois. Dry May and June hatching times do not allow the recently hatched chicks to find bugs during the critical first 30-60 days of their life. The bugs are the chicks food, protein and moisture required to get a hold on this world. Without the moisture the rooster that you shoot each fall do not making past the fuzzy chick stage and the chick survival rate plummet. Three years in a row starts to eat away at the nesting hen population and that makes recover slow even if we do get spring moisture.
This is true with all upland game birds, quail, pheasant, grouse and even turkeys but to a lower degree.
We have plenty of good cover but no wild birds to fill it. Releasing pen raised pheasants to build the local wild population just makes the coyotes and hawks fat.
So knowing how important the upland game bird hunting is for dogs and men we provide pheasant, Chukar and quail raise in specially constructed flight pens that allow them to build their wing strength as they grow. These birds are available for hunting from September 1st to February 28th. Feel free to bring your own dogs or hunt without dogs. The bird’s releases are in accordance to the pricing below.
The hunting area is by the lodge so it is easy to make it an overnight stay or put it in with a deer, dove or turkey hunt. No Colorado Hunting license required. Al l hunts are guided or unguided as you request.
