“The hunt was such a success last year, and all the ladies had a great time. Some had never shot a gun before and were shooting birds out of the sky by late morning.” said Donna Jones, DNR wildlife technician at Flat River State Game Area. “We look forward to making this experience available again to ladies who want to try pheasant hunting.”
Established in 1975, Pine Hill Sportsman’s Club offers its members some of the finest in upland bird hunting anywhere on four farms totaling more than 600 acres. Pine Hill’s intensive land management program not only benefits the population of free-ranging upland birds, but also enhances habitat for deer, turkey and waterfowl.
