Tower Hunts

Tower Shoot offers the excitement of being in a group setting while enjoying live bird shooting. Small groups of 10 and large groups with as many as 40 can enjoy a day of pheasant or duck shooting from our two towers. Once each month a shoot is available during the regular hunting season for individuals. Check the web-site for dates and availability. Based upon the old English driven pheasant hunts, this style of hunting allows a new venue for those interested in doing a bird hunt. When you're looking for something new and fun, try one of these. We typically shoot pheasants, but we have done mallard ducks or chukars. Birds are "launched" from our special tower, while hunters are positioned around the field to try their skill at these fast flying birds.

Birds on the wing fly over at tree top level without warning to provide the ultimate in tower shooting. Don't miss this thrilling event - book now to avoid disappointment during the season. Coffee and danish are served in the clubhouse at 8:am, assignments are given, and you will proceed to one of ten stations alone or with a partner. Hunting begins at 9:00am. Lunch is prepared and served in the clubhouse at noon for all participants.

Guidelines for Tower Hunts

Two shooting grounds with 40 foot release towers each consist of 10 - 18 shooting positions that are from 100 to 200 yards from the tower. Pheasants are released one or two at a time. If you think you can kill the bird, you can shoot at it. Shooting positions are situated to allow only overhead shooting at pheasants that have a flying start of at least 100 yards. Most shots are from 40 to 60 yards. Shooters rotate after each shooting period. During the shoot each shooter rotates completely around the tower in order to afford equal opportunity in all areas. Half way through the shoot we take a break and supply plenty of refreshments.

All birds are divided equally among all at the tower hunt. The first six shooters paying a small cleanup hunt fee can return to the tower area to hunt the missed pheasants with dogs after shoot. Those paid will take a break before proceeding on the clean-up hunt. Individuals may bring their own retrievers for their group.

For those wishing to book a private tower shooting event please call the General Manager, Drew Smith at 302-528-1977 to sort out the details.
