This is Best Chance's most requested hunt. These hunts are a sell out every year.  Reservations are required during mid-to-late summer so birds are reserved for fall shooting. This hunt has been a corporate home run for years, with lots of shooting, pursing wild pheasnts after the release, and as simple as walking around a circle for senior hunters and youths. The hunt usually takes about 5 hours,  We can arrange for morning or after lunch shoots.
