2 Day Pheasant & Duck Hunt, 9th & 10th December
Come along and join us here at Green Acres Sportsman’s Club for two days of classic Dakota Style Pheasant and Duck hunting over our 1,200 acres of rolling prairie, woodlands and our purpose built water/flyway system, housing our “Keepered” free range Mallard Ducks.
Utilising the years of experience of owner operator Dan Ihrke and the skills of our resident Gamekeeper, Tyler Brenner, we will provide Hunters with the ultimate experience of coveys of rocketing Pheasants and a sky full of fast flying Mallards.
Day One: The team of 8 Guns will arrive at mid-day to a home cooked brunch and a welcome introduction from Dan Ihrke and a brief on the weekends hunt itinerary from gamekeeper Tyler Brenner.
At 1.30pm Guns will move to our unique “Simulated Duck Flight Flurry” where unlimited Clay targets thrown from an array of 9 Traps and using an authentic “Blind”, everyone will get the perfect opportunity to warm up their barrels and get “their eye in!” for the following afternoons Duck flight.
From here, at around 2.30pm Guns will move to the waterway and take position in their “Blinds” (2 Blinds of 4 Guns) for the 3pm start of the “Dusk Mallard Flight”.
With Sunset around 5pm Guns return back to the Lodge for a chance to relax and freshen up before 6pm when a gourmet home cooked, 3 course, dinner is served.
Day Two: Begins at 8am with Breakfast at the Clubhouse and a brief on the days hunt.
Guns will split into two teams of 4 and with their Guides head out to the fields for a 9.30 start.
Mid way through the morning guns return to the Club House for “Elevensies”, an imported hunt tradition from the UK where a break is taken to refuel and warm up on some hot snacks and a mug of soup.
Around 12 o’clock guns return to Hunt a different field and complete the day’s bag.
The successful days hunt will draw to a close at 2.30pm and Guns will make their way back to the Clubhouse.
A home cooked farm house style Lunch will be served at 3pm, during which birds will be cleaned and prepared for the Guns departure from 4.30pm onward.
