What You Provide for your Hunt
- Outdoor clothing applicable to the season. (See below)
- Check our “WEATHER” for a 7 day forecast with the understanding that we have found that beyond 48 hours the forecast accuracy declines significantly.
- Shotgun-12, 16, and 20 gauge are normally used for pheasants at the ranch. Choke selection can be discussed for days, but improved or modified are usually appropriate.
- Blaze Orange-Minimum of a cap (complimentary) and vest. The rule is – more is better.
- Protective Eyewear-We require the utilization of protective eyewear while shotgunning. We have good inexpensive eyewear available for purchase.
- Ammunition-We have both premium and promotional ammunition for sale at the ranch. If you elect to bring ammunition, we recommend high velocity #6’s. For safety we prohibit the use of larger shot size and very high powered shot shells. We have seen problems with “heavy game loads” as having inadequate velocity to consistently bring down pheasants.
