Assunpink Pheasant

13 posts in this topic

Is it possible/practical to pheasant hunt at Assunpink without a dog? I took my son on youthday and the state provided dogs and guides and he loved it. I don't think he'll like walking around a field for hours and not even seeing a bird. I would hate for him to get turned off to hunting at such an early age. Outside of hiring a guide or going to a place like Bent Creek, is there any way to hook up with some one who just wants to run/train their dogs ? Getting my own dog is not an option at this time but might be in the future.

I think you'd get a much better response if you change the title of this thread to "PLEASE HELP MY SON HUNT PHEASANT".

See what happens & who responds.  Don't concentrate on the expectation of hunting in your own backyard (desired place), and instead travel to where the dog(s) will be with their trainer/owners.  Don't let a tank of gas cause your boy to be disenchanted with bird hunting.  Instead embrace the ride as a chance to put the phone down & bond.

Places like Bent Creek & Gibersons in Pemberton love to work with kids.  You may want to make a few inquires to see if they have any customers willing to help you.  There are mentors in more places than you realize :)

Yes you can bag pheasants without a dog but it's really hiking with a gun and occsionally you get to shoot at a pheasant. I did it for years but when I hunt with my buddy's dog we get allot more birds. 

I'm going to send you a PM

Actually Bent Creek won't let anyone under 12 on a guided hunt. I'm not sure how strict they are with this but that's what their brochure says.

Then go to Giberson's where I was on a hunting party with a 9 year old girl last March!  She got to watch her mom harvesting birds with the owners son, Pat Giberson!  If you have a Facebook page I can share both stills & a video of that hunt.  For some reason this site won't let me share them.
