Continental Hunts

Join us for a Continental Hunt

4 Shooting Dates Set

Shooters of high birds know August 12th is the start of the British driven shooting season. It’s the time when family and friends gather together to celebrate a tradition of pheasant hunting that has endured the test of time. Join us for a series of Continental hunts reminiscent of the Edwardian period which is the Golden Era of shooting.

Continental Hunts at The Preserve

Break out your Plus 2’s, flashings, and Wellingtons as five shooting dates are offered this year. We’ll begin the morning with breakfast in our clubhouse featuring an omelet station, eggs served any way, applewood smoked bacon, waffles, and coffee, tea and juice.
Or, shoot our compact sporting clays to warm-up your shot.

Our shoot orientation begins mid-morning followed by a 1,500 bird release. Twenty-four shooters rotate between our 12 shooting pegs and 13th peg warming station. Dinner follows with a filet and lobster combination, mini bison meatballs, roasted pheasant with endive and a Scotch and cigar pairing.

Whether you are shooting clean-up after one of our European Tower Hunts or choose to reserve a morning for you and your friends to shoot stocked game, we here at The Preserve can accommodate nearly any shooting experience.

“I’ve shot around the entire country and this is by far the best tower shoot  and some of the best shooting grounds in the United States.”

– Larry Martin CEO & Founder Field and Stream Products

High Tower Hunts

Our European tower stands the tallest in the Northeast region at 210’ above its lowest station. With 12 stations, 24 shooters, and enough guides and dogs to support all of the fun, The Preserve hosts the finest tower hunts in the country.

“The shot presentation was unlike anything I had ever experienced, the bird soared higher than I had ever seen in America.  The great sounds of shotguns firing and friends applauding surrounded us, echoing over the high rough pitch of crackling roosters all around. For a moment it was quiet, we all took a breath and glanced over the wall to take it all in.”
