If you like to shoot, our European Hunts are just your ticket. They are a great time to be had with friends and family or to entertain your business clients/employees. They are excellent for team building and for those who aren’t able to field hunt. The shoots can also be easily combined with lunch, dinner, appetizers and/or drinks to continue the fun and camaraderie at our Orvis Endorsed Facility.
The event requires a minimum of 12 shooters or a maximum of 36.
Our European Hunts typically comprise of the release of anywhere between 200 and 600 pheasants. Those birds are divided and released during 12 different rounds from a centrally located location.
The hunt consists of 12 rounds and 12 different shooting locations. A siren will rotate the hunter(s) throughout all 12 stations during the shoot.
The location features a brushy thicket atop an enormous hill that looks over our beautiful and scenic Loess Hills landscape and into Western Iowa. Because of the unique location, you and your buddy can work together to bring down those quick and high-flying roosters or give each other a hard time when you miss those slow and steady incomers.
Shells… lots and lots of shells. Please also come with a clean gun. You don’t want to be having gun problems during this hunt. Rental guns and ammunition are available in our pro-shop. Licenses and permits can be acquired upon arrival. Get ready for the action; these are the ultimate experiences in wing-shooting!
