Wild Pheasant Hunting

Pheasant hunting at Johannsen Farms Outfitting is second to none. 
WE ARE NOT A HUNTING PRESERVE. All the birds on our farm are 100% WILD. We pride ourselves on providing a challenging wild pheasant hunting experience even the most accomplished wingshooter can appreciate.

We specialize in guiding smaller hunting parties ranging in number from 3-10 hunters. All hunts are guided by professional pheasant hunting guides and include the following:

  • Transportation to and from the field
  • Our professionally trained flushing/pointing labs and/or your dogs
  • Sack lunch in the field or hot lunch in the clubhouse
  • Bird cleaning and packaging
  • Daily round of clays at our trap shooting area
  • Johannsen Farms Outfitting hunting hat
  • Heated dog kennels for your four legged hunting partner

For over 20 years our hunters have experienced a 95% success rate, seeing hundreds of birds while bagging their daily limit of 3 wild roosters each day. Don't let our success rate fool you into thinking this is an easy hunt. These hunts are challenging and the crafty roosters tend to humble the greatest wing shooters. Our success rate is mainly due to our carefully managed, limited harvest of birds. This ensures that there is a proper ratio of roosters to hens heading into winter. Careful habitat management ensures a healthy population of thousands of ringneck pheasants each season.

Season dates for the fall of 2023 run from October 21st to January 31st 2024. Due to possible late season weather concerns, no hunts will be scheduled after December 16th.
