Private & Corporate Pheasant Ring Shoots
Ring Shoots, sometimes called European or Continental Shoots, are hunts where pheasants are driven toward the shooters as they fly overhead. Here's how it works...
Our Release Pad is in the center of a ring, within a 70 acre broom sedge field. Around the ring are 10 Shooting Stations. Each station can accommodate 2 shooters. The minimum number of shooters is 10, the maximum is 20. The total number of pheasants released is 15 per shooter. Pheasants are released one or sometimes two at a time. After one tenth of the birds are released, shooters change stands so every shooter visits each stand. Retrievers outside the Ring collect the bag. After the shoot, lunch is provided. Then, participants may opt into a 1.5 hour "Mop-Up", where pointing breeds are used to find birds that escaped the ring. A $140 guide fee (split between hunters) is charged; it is not uncommon to bag another 10-20 pheasant on this added excursion.
You are welcome to bring your own bird dog on a mop-up; however, many customers take full advantage of this opportunity by reserving a pro-guide and their dogs ($140 - maximum 4 hunters per guide).
Ring Shoots can be scheduled on any day of the week, including Sundays. Lunch is included and is served before or after the Ring shoot. Ring shoots make for truly memorable corporate outings and fundraising events.
Each Retriever will get a pheasant to take home. After that, the bag will be divided evenly among the shooters. The cost is $450 per shooter, breasting of pheasants is $4.00 per bird.
These events provide hours of fun and are a great experience for friends and families, business associates, or any other group of hunters. Most gunners will use 3-4 boxes of shells. Released pheasants present a formidable challenge, and many will escape the Ring. For the cost of a trip to South Dakota (where the limit is 3) you can enjoy a Ring Shoot 4 or 5 times. There is no bag limit at Orapax!

Ring Shoot Cancellation and "No Show" Policy: You MUST call our office (804-556-2261) at least 1 week prior to the ring shoot date, or you will be charged the full fee of the Shoot. This policy will be enforced without exception, and you must pay upon receipt of invoice.
