Minnesota’s Pheasant & Waterfowl Hunts

At Watson Hunting Camp, our pheasant hunts can take place on our private prairie preserve or if you’d rather, you can chase them on the 30,000 public acres of pheasant ground. Most hunters pair these hunts up with our world class caliber waterfowl hunts. The waterfowl hunts take place in the morning and the pheasant hunts take place in the afternoon for a full day of action. Our goal is to provide the best possible Minnesota pheasant hunting experience! From the beginner to the more experienced hunter, we can accommodate everyone. Our private hunting land consists of over 1,500 acres of the best Minnesota pheasant habitat, and the most abundant population in the state! Our pheasant hunting guides are experienced and have been hunting pheasants for years to provide the best experience possible. We have fantastic hunting dogs that come along on every trip and welcome you to bring your own well-trained dogs.

A Typical Day

If you have paired your upland hunt with a waterfowl hunt, as most hunters do, we’ll start a couple hours before sunrise. First, you’ll have the chance to grab breakfast at The Watson Hunting Camp then we’ll head out to the field or water to chase ducks and/or geese. After you’re morning waterfowl hunt, you’ll have a chance to grab a snack or lunch (depending on when we return from our morning hunt) then we’ll chase pheasants. We have two options for you’re pheasant hunt: our private 165 acre CRP prairie preserve or on the 30,000 acres of public pheasant ground. For our public land hunts you’ll start your guided pheasant hunts we’ll give the introduction of the fields and hunting options in the area. With over 30,000 public acres if you don’t take your limit in the first couple fields, we’ll have plenty of field options for you to hunt. After your hunt, swing back to the Watson Hunting Camp, enjoy lunch and relax.

If you prefer to hunt our 165 acre CRP prairie preserve we’ll be able to coordinate a time for your hunt. Prior to the hunt you’ll purchase your birds. These hunts can be taken on your own or you can hunt with one of our guides and dog.
