A Guide to European Pheasant Hunts

Introduction To European Pheasant Hunts

European pheasant hunts are where hunting a specific game, like pheasant, is allowed under controlled conditions. These privately owned and managed hunting areas are licensed by states such as Kansas. European pheasant hunts have an extended upland bird season that runs from September 1st through March 31st. In some states and cases, you need to have a special hunting license to hunt during the extended season. 


10 Gauge Outfitters has put endless hours of work into providing clients with more opportunities hunting upland game. European Pheasant Hunts with 10 Gauge are amazing! Hunting these grounds as early as September gives you an opportunity to prepare for the fall season. Also, European Pheasant Hunts are extended until the end of March. So, if you still need to get your fill of pheasants during the regular season, you can get out there and enjoy them through March.

Planning Your European Pheasant Hunt

The best time for European pheasant hunts is early on in the season, like September. Additionally, the warmer weather makes hunting much more enjoyable. European pheasant hunts in the late winter are another great option. After the regular season has closed off, getting that last pheasant is always a great feeling. These hunts provide more hunting opportunities, supports wildlife conservation, and promotes responsible hunting practices.

The Hunting Experience 

During a pheasant hunt, hunters should practice walking into the wind as much as possible. This helps our dogs pick up the birds’ scent and prevents hunters from flushing the birds out of shooting range. While hunting, keeping your shotgun in a safe, pointed direction is essential. This also prepares you for a smooth transition to a hopefully successful shot. After a fun-filled hunt and a limited number of pheasants, you can find a delicious meal from our professional chef. Book your next European Pheasant Hunt with 10 Gauge Outfitters. 

Here are some tips to ensure a successful European Pheasant Hunts: 

  • Walk into the wind and use it to your advantage: Plan your approach to the grounds. Walking into the wind moves your scent away from the pheasant and allows the hunting dogs to pick up the scents of the birds. 
  • Be in good physical condition: Being physically fit gives you a steadier, quicker, and smoother shot and allows you to cover more distance without fatigue. 
  • Time your Hunts: The best times to go pheasant hunting are early morning and late evening.
  • Practice Field Safety: Safety is the most important factor when hunting. Ensure your party practices field safety, including shot angles and clearly identifying targets. 
  • Practice Handling and Shooting Skills: The more you practice, the better your shot will be! Practice mounting the gun to your shoulder and aiming.
