Hunter farms
« on: June 29, 2022, 03:24:01 PM »
With price of gas and new pup to train looking at to stay closer to home for bird hunting. How busy does the hunter farms release sites get for pheasant. Ducks I know I can make reservations which help but the pheasant access is a feel free to hunt site so open 7 days a week. Just wondering what to expect

Thanks

The few times I've driven by there was a few trucks parked but not super packed. I haven't hunted it though.

Saturdays can be a zoo, with multiple groups working towards each other. In the past I had a dog put up a bird and the guy across a slough shot at the bird and almost shot my dog. He and I exchanged  few heated words but in the end he apologized and left.
I will only hunt it in the afternoon and on weekdays. The early part of the season is nice as the fields are still mostly dry. That's said when the rains start it turns into real nice waterfowl habitat, it floods quickly.

Im used to hunting these crazy wet side release areas for years. I have also hunted "hunters farms" a few times. My advice with any release site on the west side is to wait until 10 am before you leave your truck. Maybe I shouldnt be be saying this because that is what I do. There are fewer birds, but do you want your dogs to work or just shoot birds in a barrel and leave in 15 minutes? Im not sure where your located, but I would (again probably shouldnt be doing this) suggest scatter creek after the zoo has left. Its most likely all west side release sites are similar. Stay away from the 8 am line of hunters. It is not a pleasant experience and its really not hunting. If you love upland hunting, try the east side public land. Skip the release sights, although fun and easy, pic something that doesnt get a commercial release. Its not the 80's and your not going limit 3 people in an hour. Need a pointer? Start with Dodson Rd. and then branch out from there. I have probably said too much. Have a great hunting season and enjoy your dog. In my opinion that is the entire purpose. *censored* goose livers. Pm me if you would like a few extra tips. BTW, What breed of dog do you have?

I have a yellow lab looking to get into the field. I have some hunts planned for the East side later in the year just wanted him to get in the field a bit more and flush up some birds. I was planning on hitting up the opener on hunter farms but maybe I'll just go later in the day after the big rush as im sure it will be a rush. I would agree and say I would like my dog to be in the field a while birds or no birds he will smell them and have more of a chance to work then be crowded and rushed. Coming from the Key Peninsula its just a nice drive there and back so that why i ask about the area.
