Michigan DNR Offers Fall Pheasant Hunt for Women
The Department of Natural Resources is offering a guided fall pheasant hunt designed for women through the department’s Becoming an Outdoors-Woman program (BOW). Hunters Creek Club in Metamora will host the hunt, on Saturday, Oct. 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Beginners are welcome for this three-bird-limit hunt. The day will start with safety orientation, then target practice with one-on-one instruction and extra attention and instruction for those who have never bird-hunted before.

After lunch, participants will break up into small groups and head out to the field for a guided, walk-up hunt with dogs. Birds will be cleaned by Hunters Creek staff.

For this hunt, participants will need a small game license or apprentice license. For license information, visit www.mdnr-elicense.com. Hunter orange as the outermost clothing layer is required by law.

Several 20-gauge shotguns, hunter orange vests, and eye and ear protection for target practice will be available for participants’ use. Target ammunition, donated by Federal Ammunition, also will be provided.


Attendees should bring one box of shotgun shells – field load – for the hunt in the afternoon. Ammunition is available for purchase at the Hunters Creek Pro Shop.


The $150-per-person cost includes target practice, the guided hunt and lunch with participants’ menu choice in the Hunters Creek dining room. Hunting license and guide gratuities are not included in the registration fee. The registration deadline is Oct. 6.

Hunters Creek Club is located at 675 E. Sutton Rd. in Metamora. For driving directions and more information, visit www.hunterscreekclub.com.

BOW is designed to be a noncompetitive program in which each individual is encouraged to learn at her own pace. The emphasis is on the enjoyment, fun and camaraderie of outdoor activities, and sharing in the success of one another.

The Department of Natural Resources is committed to the conservation, protection, management, and accessible use and enjoyment of the state's environment, natural resources, and related economic interests for current and future generations. Learn more at www.michigan.gov/dnr.
