"You have an excellent staff. It seems all they want is what is best for their client and I hunted with three of them. The cook is amazing and every time I seen him he was busy, a one man show."
"I just returned from Pheasant Bonanza and the hunt was incredible from the time I arrived, until I had to leave. I will definitely be back. Thanks, Trent, staff, and crew...."
Benelli Exhibition shooter
I’d wanted to visit Pheasant Bonanza since hunting with one of their dogs at another lodge. I was impressed then, and more so when we made some episodes of Wingshooting USA there recently. The grounds are varied and managed carefully for birds and good dog work. The setting is beautiful, staff accommodating and fun to be with. The dogs....were stellar!
"We recently purchased a black lab puppy from Pheasant Bonanza. We were very impressed with the care and communication we received about our dog. We also appreciated Trent and his efforts to get us the best deal & best dog. Thank you for all you did!!"

Our hunting area consists of thousands of acres of prime hunting land. Our controlled grounds provide an excellent mix of wild terrain, upland birds, white-tailed deer, wild turkey and migratory waterfowl.
We currently concentrate on providing the highest quality hunting experience for upland game bird hunters, but keep an eye out for our future game hunt additions.
Whether you are a novice or a seasoned hunter, we specifically tailor every hunt to your experience level. Pheasant Bonanza will provide you with expert guides and professionally trained sporting dogs for your convenience. If you would like to bring your own dog, feel free! They are always welcome at Pheasant Bonanza.
We can accommodate groups from as few as four to a large corporate event. We also encourage you to bring your young hunters along. The fast action in our controlled shooting area and the plentiful shooting is a great way to introduce the next generation to the excitement and rewards of hunting.
It is our promise that you have the most enjoyable and successful hunt. Your group will hunt our select grasslands and food plots behind our highly trained pointing dogs and professional guides.
You will experience the dogs quartering the fields closely to you and then going into a staunch point while you carefully get into position, giving you the time to place your well aimed shot after the bird flushes.

Imagine sitting in a comfortable blind, cooking up breakfast and having hundreds of snow geese spiraling down to land in the decoys. Hear the guide give the command, and then you shoot.

Hunting season starts September 1st.so lets bring on the pheasants!! If you like a lot of shooting, our European Tower Hunts are just the thing for you! We will be releasing 215-600 birds at each Tower Hunt.

These shoots are a great way to entertain your friends or business clients at Pheasant Bonanza. We can accommodate groups from 12 - 36 shooters on each course. These types of shoots are ideal and are a great tool for team building, corporate events and for those not able to field hunt.
Our European Hunting Course is a 40 ft. tall release tower surrounded by trees and 12 shooting stations. A hunt requires a minimum of 12 shooters (one for each station), up to a maximum of 36 shooters (three for each station).
The birds are released from a 40 foot tower. Once released, they fly full speed about 40 yards before they get into range. Many times, a bird will shoot the gap between stations giving the hunter a challenging shot.
Our signature Driven Corn Field Hunt features a corn field that is also surrounded by grassland with 12 shooting stations, which can accommodate groups from 12- 36 shooters.
The birds are driven out of the corn and are in full flight by the time they reach your shooting station, giving you the shooting experience of a lifetime.
Please come with a clean gun and several boxes of shells because you will have several opportunities to shoot at a passing bird. Rental guns and ammunition are available in our ProShop. Get ready for the action; these are the ultimate experiences in wing-shooting! Call for additional details - 1.888.366.HUNT.
