Enjoy Hunting Season at this Private Outdoor Paradise

One of the many great features of Liberty County is the beautiful array of ecosystems ranging from the marshes and coastline to the forests further inland. It brings many different people and activities to our community and one place highly sought after is Dorchester Shooting Preserve.

What started as a small hunting club established by Charlie & Chuck Gaskin is now a 5,000-acre hunting hotspot tucked away into the pines and oaks of the old colonial Dorchester village just outside of Midway. The father and son team have turned their interests and passion for outdoors, hunting and fishing into a place where families or individuals can come to enjoy a piece of Liberty County paradise. The preserve features different types of hunting and fishing excursions as well as lodging and dining on site.

Dorchester Shooting Preserve does offer year-round hunting for wild boar, which is important as wild boars cause damage to property. One of the biggest highlights of the property are the bird hunting options which include quail and pheasant. Hunters can enjoy half-day or full-day hunts complete with well-trained hunting dogs and guides to assist. Quail hunting runs from October 1st through March 31st. Continental pheasant shoots are available late November through mid-March.

A sporting clay course is another activity of the preserve which can be enjoyed privately or in a group. Are looking to sight in a rifle or simply practice shooting with a pistol? Dorchester has a rifle and pistol range to meet those needs. Shooting lessons are available by reservation.

If you’re more of an angler, Dorchester has plenty of options for that as well. You can choose fresh or salt water, as well as if you would prefer to stay inshore or take a boat 60 miles off the coast to do some deep-sea fishing. Fish range in size from Spot Tail Bass inshore to large Mahi Mahi offshore, both guaranteed to give you good fishing stories for quite some time.

No matter if you prefer hunting, fishing or simply getting back to the basics in the great outdoors, Dorchester Shooting Preserve definitely has plenty of options to enjoy.
