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.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
