In the late nineties, a few Kentucky outfitters decided to offer limitless quail and pheasant wing shooting format to guests. The gently rolling countryside of Northwestern Kentucky became distinguished as Kentucky’s premiere pheasant-hunting attraction. This tremendous honor culminated during the 2006-07 season with several prestigious awards for many outfitters! Equal to the quality of the hunt is the quality of the lodge itself, as any good pheasant hunter can attest. Prompt, courteous service is a must – and what better place to demonstrate hospitality than in the heart of a southern state: Kentucky.
Accommodations must be first-rate and always clean and comfortable, and in this context, so many Kentucky pheasant-hunting guides deliver. Depending on your choice of outfitter, there are some great amenities – from Hors d’oeuvres and open bars to after-hunt hours and dining – always a memorable experience. Additionally, southern hospitality dictates that guides never accommodate more clients than to which they can personally attend. If their staff isn't on a first-name basis with you when you arrive, they will be by the time you depart, no matter which company you choose!
In Kentucky, you will savor the wilderness, coupled with staunch points and the highest volume, one-fee quail and pheasant hunting in the nation. The establishment of native Kentucky warm-season grasses, and Kentuckyans’ unique method of replenishing pheasant populations are keys to unparalleled wing shooting. A variety of quail and pheasant packages are available in Kentucky:
Traditional Kentucky hunts provide for 16-bird daily limits, but the most popular hunts, however, are conducted under an exclusive one-fee, no-limit quail and pheasant format. Contacts of 18-24 coveys and honest opportunities at 200 pheasants can be expected during a full day of hunting in Kentucky. Add chukar birds, red-leg and Hungarian partridges, and Kentucky mallards for an unforgettable wing shooting experience. Plus, average temperatures of 30-50 degrees Fahrenheit provide comfortable hunting conditions throughout Kentucky’s October-through-March extended pheasant-hunting season.
In addition to the overwhelming quantity and quality of both Kentucky quail and pheasant, personal service is a leading contributor to Kentucky’s sterling reputation. Professional, hospitable guides will escort you afield and ensure that your time outdoors is well-spent and of the highest quality.
