Continental Hunts

Join us for a Continental Hunt

5 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 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.

Our shoot orientation begins mid-morning followed by a 1,000 bird release. Twenty-six 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.

The Preserve at Boulder Hills

Sporting Clays

Our Chris Batha and Jack O’Brien designed, compact sporting clays courses, integrate steep and rigid terrain creating multiple shots on field 1 that will pressure even the most experienced shooter. Field 2 is a more relaxed compact sporting setting, creating the perfect canvas for some pre-hunting practice and/or beginner range space. A 14 station full sporting clays course is underway, as well as a multi station 5 stand that will impress even the highest class of shooters.

Specially designated fields are available where man and dog unite to meet the challenges of bird hunting. The Preserve is home to 8 new bird hunting fields, with the smallest being 300x100 yards. 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 and every 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

High Tower Hunts

Our NEW 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 is the latest and greatest in driven tower hunts this country has ever seen.

“The shot presentation was unlike anything I had ever experienced, the bird soared higher than I had ever seen in America.  Myself an avid wing shooter and this is type of European hunt everyone should experience. 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.”
