Shoots at Dorchester
Pheasant shooting isn't just for hunter in the mid-west!
Throughout the hunting season, Dorchester organizes Continental Pheasant
Shoots, an activity that offers high volume shooting that is perfect for
a corporate outing or entertaining guests.
Here's How It's Done:
During a pheasant hunt, participants (in pairs) occupy one of 12
stations located in a circle approximately 150 yards from a 60-foot
tower. The stations are situated approximately 50-60 yards apart.
The shooting round begins when a signal is given from the tower. All
guns are to remain unloaded until the signal is given. Once the
pheasants for that shooting round have been released, and the downed
birds are retrieved, another signal will be given to end the shooting
round. Hunters unload their guns, and rotate clockwise to the next
shooting station; no shooting is allowed while rotating stations. Once
each pair of hunters has arrived at the next station, another signal is
given and the next shooting round will begin. The shoot continues in
this manner until each pair of hunters has visited all stations.
At $275 per person, Continental Pheasant Shoot Packages Include:
- 10 Pheasants
