September ~ 2014: It's Pheasant Hunting Season at
The Ringneck Ranch LLC
We Love to Hunt
We're all about showing you a incredibly great time hunting for beautiful, cunning and great tasting Ringneck Pheasant in southern Michigan!
As always, The Ringneck Ranch LLC welcomes all the terrific hunters that come here to hunt pheasant. Pheasant hunters look forward to their Ringneck Ranch hunts with co-workers, family and friends; all of them great outdoorsmen, women and young hunters who are working to keep Michigan's hunting heritage alive and well.
We've hosted some spectacular hunts at the Ranch over the years. Countless shooters come out to bust those cagey ringnecks with great success . It doesn't matter whether hunters come out to spend a few hours field hunting, or if they come out to obliterate massive numbers of those crazy pheasants as they come burning out of the tower during one of "Big Daddy Ron's European Hunts", it's always another great day of pheasant hunting at The Ringneck Ranch LLC. We can't even begin to tell you how much we enjoy having all of you out, and how much we appreciate the time you spend with us.
Whether your hunt party consists of you, or you and 30 of your closest hunting buddies, we're going to bend over backwards to make your time hunting with us unforgettable. When you get here we'll meet in the "Shot-Lodge". Bring your gear in, grab some fresh coffee and get registered. While you're busy gearing up to head out into the field Ron's going to be a step ahead of you planting your birds per your directions.
Don't think you'll have some oh-so-easy hunting, or that those birds are going to pop right up so you can take a pot-shot. Not these ringnecks. These birds are raised in extra large flight pens with heavy cover with minimal exposure to humans and dogs. Our ringnecks are strong flyers, and as wary and wily as any pheasant you'll hunt in Idaho, Iowa, Kansas or the Dakota's. You're going to have some high-times shooting.
You're always welcome to plug in your crock-pots; use the range, the fridge and just about anything else you need. Give us a heads-up if you want to do a little grilling. We'll have the grill ready and waiting. If you want to skip hauling food with you we'll be glad to pull a lunch together for your group with advance notice. Give us a call (517/524-8294), or send an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org so we can show you the The Ringneck Ranch LLC has it happening when it comes to hunting pheasants.
Big Daddy Ron's European Style Hunt
Ten Pheasants, Bird Cleaning & Our N.Y. Strip Steak Lunch
If you 're looking for shooting that's a little more intense and action packed but hate to give up the opportunity of a traditional field hunt you need to take part in one of "Big Daddy Ron's European Hunts" That's right, this is it! You're going to have to get up early to get here in time for coffee and fresh baked that morning pastries in the Shot-Lodge. Once that caffine and sugar start to shake you awake there will be a few minutes to catch up with old and new friends and to get your gear; guns and shells together before the safety meeting. Then it's out to the tower field and a quick walk to one of fifteen shooting stations and some incredible shooting action. You're going to have ten wiley pheasants per shooter pitched out of the tower in rounds of ten birds each for up to 30 shooters Shooters are going to be moving to the next station after each round. While you're out in the firestorm things are happening at the Shot-Lodge as we pull together a spectacular lunch. We'll be serving juicy and tender, thick-cut New York Strip Steaks, hot off the grill, served with salad, baked potato, rolls, beverage and seasonal desserts. You're going to eat too much; but don't worry, you'll be burning that and more off in the afternoon. There won't be any stretching out for a little afternoon snooze because after lunch it's back to the fields for a walk-up to kick up those birds that made it through the circle of fire that morning. It's the best of the best: a full day of running and gunning the entire Ringneck Ranch for participants of Big Daddy Ron's European Hunt. When the days over you'll be loaded down with your own fresh, plucked clean and processed pheasants. We've included everything except your hunting clothes, shoes, gun and ammo. All you have to do is show up and shoot! You're going to have some hunting fun. When you contact us remember to ask about the cash discount for the groups coordinator who pulls it all together and makes a European Tower Hunt happen.
Having a superior hunt always comes back to the same three elements. You need healthy; hard flying game birds, great field cover for those birds to hunker down in while they wait for you and that great flushing or pointing dog to roust them out and bust them into flight. Did I mention the excitement of bringing your gun up to your shoulder; aiming, firing and watching that cockbird careen to the ground? And then there's the pure beauty of watching that incredible pointing or flushing dog make a perfect retrieve and drop it right into your hand, all proud of himself and the great job he just did for you.The three magic elements of a great hunt: a dog that lives for the hunt; healthy, hard flying gamebirds and exceptional cover.
Anyone that hunts at The Ringneck Ranch LLC will tell you that we have those three magic elements all available to you in one place all at the same time. Birds here are treated to a special diet for maximum performance and conditioning and are housed in areas with plenty of room for them to hone their flight skills.
We work hard to provide you not only with great service: the best birds; and a top notch facility, but also with superior cover in comparison to many other preserves. The cover here is excellent in the early fall, but sorghum seems to come into it's own after it's been hit by a few heavy frosts, two or three wet snowfalls and a little freezing rain. One tip to remember is to always look beyond what's right in front of and around you. Remember to work those fence rows, wooded lanes, plots of corn and hit the brushy areas that are included in your designated hunting area. Chances are whether you're hunting with your own dog, or one of ours you're going to find an extra bird or two hiding out in some of the most unlikely places.
