The Sandy Run Hunt Co. Continental Pheasant Shoot simulates an European, driven hunt consisting of pass shooting.
The day will begin at 8:30 with morning snacks and coffee. Wobble trap will be available before the shoot for warming up. The pheasant shoot will start after 9 am and be held in the Clubhouse Field. Pheasants will be released from a raised platform in the center of the field, with 12 to 16 shooting stations placed around the field. A round of birds will be released, equal to the number of shooters. After each round we will retrieve the downed birds before moving to another shooting station for the next round. This will continue for 12 rounds and all shooters have had an opportunity at each station. We will have retrieving dogs available or you are welcome to bring your own.
After the hunt around 12:30 all the birds will be cleaned and divided equally among the shooters. Lunch will be served in the clubhouse..
