Pheasant shooting isn’t just for hunters in the mid-west! Throughout the hunting season, Dorchester organizes Continental Pheasant Shoots, an activity that offers high volume shooting that is perfect for a corporate outing or entertaining multiple guests.
Here’s How It Works:
During a pheasant hunt, participants (in pairs) occupy one of 12 stations located in a circle approximately 150 yards from a 60-foot tower. The stations are situated approximately 50-60 yards apart.
The shooting round begins when a signal is given from the tower. All guns are to remain unloaded until the signal is given. Once the pheasants for that shooting round have been released, and the downed birds are retrieved, another signal will be given to end the shooting round.
Hunters unload their guns, and rotate clockwise to the next shooting station; no shooting is allowed while rotating stations. Once each pair of hunters has arrived at the next station, another signal is given and the next shooting round will begin. The shoot continues in this manner until each pair of hunters has visited all stations.
