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.

    • I have a 2013 ecoboost since new, now have 85,000. Starts right up.
    • 1/16 oz chartreuse forage minnow. No need for anything else.
    • Got out on local trails for a quick 60 mile ride ,,,, 3rd set of tracks on a freshly groomed trail ,,, It was like riding on a ribbon,,, Trail conditions near Duluth  are ideal with all the snow we have received,,, Ya gotta love riding during the week  
    • Demons are good!  I always have some with too.  But I usually start with a forage minnow in blue/glow.  Another I’ve learned to keep handy is a Rattling Blade Spoon.   Can’t say I have a hard go to for sunnies.  Sometimes they hit the forage minnow anyway.  But I do normally have a tungsten jig head with plastic ready to go if a good marking fish is interested but just won’t commit.
    • Oops, you’re right Del. I have deer too and feed corn to them. Birds are fighting for perches many times throughout the day. I’ve been trying to coordinate the frenzy times With those major/minor  feeding activity tables but so far not much similarity. It gets REAL crazy at times. 
    • What is everyone's favorite crappie and sunfish jig?  I always like to a have a demon jig on at least one of my rods. I have had great luck with a white body and a purple, orange or pink head. The demon has been my go to crappie jig for many winters! I also like a red/ yellow demon for sunnies.
    • Wisconsin had a series of snowfall across the entire state this week, dropping anywhere from 6 to more than a foot of snow in many locations. With Wisconsin finally completely covered with snow, this should be one of the best weekends of the season for outdoor winter recreation.Snowmobile trails have reopened through much of central Wisconsin counties and a few southern counties. Trails across the northern half of the state were good to excellent on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-country ski trails were groomed or will be by the weekend and many properties are reporting ski trail conditions are excellent or good. After several snowfalls this week, crews have been busy grooming ski trails. Many properties are reporting excellent conditions going into the weekend.Photo credit: DNRNorthern lakes are ice covered with 20-plus inches of ice. With the snowfall the lakes are heavy with snow and travel out on the ice is difficult. There have been a few diehard ice anglers out there fishing for walleye, crappie and perch with not much to show for their efforts. .
    • Careful with your spelling there, dude.  You never know who is reading.... Maybe that is why the packages seem to now all say Nyjer seed instead of niger.  😀
    • How many Deer tracks do you have around your feeders or else the squirrels are getting at it!  😉
