Pheasant gamefarm hunt

Recommended Posts

Gold Medows in St. Cloud is a great place.

And I second the outdoor news for a listing of some farms there.

My wife and I want to shoot some birds on a gamefarm October 18. Does anyone know of a directory or HSOforum that would give us names and numbers?

Or are there any that you would recommend? I would prefer something in the Annandale, Hutchinson area. We live in Rogers.

Why would you spend your money at a game farm when the real pheasant season just opened, with one of the highest pheasant forecasts in recent years? Spend your money on a good map of public lands and some gas, look for a public area where the crops are going out and then go after some real pheasants. When you get one of them, you have something to be proud of!

I will admit that I am biased against game farms, I think that they give hunting and hunters a bad name, especially when they start pushing to allow deer and elk to be released and shot in a pen. Maybe the pheasant farms would be good for a new pup, but thats about it. Plus I work too hard for my money, rather than spend $10-15 per released bird I'll put it toward a $105 SoDak licence.

Another vote for Gold Meadows, make sure you tell him what kind of dogs you will be bringing as it may determine which field he puts you on. He runs a clean, safe preserve and his birds all always big and healthy.
Here is his number 1-320-597-2747

Another vote for Gold Meadows. Top notch place and nice folks to boot.

I usually hunt there in the off season. Great way to relieve cabin fever.

Another vote for Gold Meadows, The Doubecks run a first class operation. As someone stated let Joe know what kind of dogs your running and how much experience they have. He will set up your hunt accordingly.

Gold Meadow's:
Ask Joe if Ralf is still there, he is the old timer and I think Joes father.
This guy really puts the effort into getting you your birds.But so do the rest of the guides, if you go with a guide any ways.

    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.    
    • lol. my brother hates them also cuz they thow a robin chick out of the nest sometimes. Only a couple here, if i had too my they would meet my 17 pellet. Red squirrels get a pass. not enough here. Grays are a different story. 
    • put a new floor in over the past month and finished it off by winterized it on Saturday.
