***Peaceable Hill Pheasant Hunting Preserve is a “Regulated Shooting Ground” located in the beautiful Champlain Valley of Vermont. The Valley is typical New England habitat rich with active dairies, apple orchards, diversified farms and conservation managed buffers. At Peaceable Hill we have hundreds of acres of outstanding pheasant and upland bird habitat that consists of open cropland with corn, milo and grain fields bordered by swale grass ditches and cool season grasses with thicket edges. We also are fortunate to have many acres of "traditional" Vermont game bird habitat. We manage our cover crops so that excellent pheasant hunting is available year-round.
Peaceable Hill is managed exclusively for prime bird habitat and bird contact is what we are all about. Whether you are training a young pup or challenging an experienced brace, the combination of cover, bird contact and the surrounding beauty will satisfy all your senses. Loud cackling Ringnecks, strong and flashy, blasting off from under the nose of a tight Pointer, or a birdie Flusher bumping a skittish hen, is the experience you will not easily forget!
Our goal is to provide you with an outstanding experience and we have the desire and ability to customize a hunt to your needs. We have spectacular fields and open cropland habitat which allows excellent visual reference for training a young pup, as well as secluded areas where distractions are minimal. We plant fields of grain sorghum (Milo), corn, perennial switch grass and reed canary grass. Crops and planting arrangements are planned in order to establish nesting cover, feed plots and challenging cover. Our natural and planted covers make for outstanding hunting throughout the season.
You are welcome to hunt with your dogs, or we can arrange a professionally handled hunt with experienced guides working over trained pointers or flushing dogs.
Whether you are a single hunter looking to train your new pup, or if you have a large group and need an all-day guided hunt, we can accommodate you. Please call anytime for further information, references or to book your hunt. Same day reservations are always welcome based on availability. Again, thanks for visiting our web site and please let us know if we can answer any questions.
