Pheasant hunting is partially about the thrill of the chase and the excitement of the explosion of the pheasants once they are flushed and partially about the bird dogs and watching them work. Both parts are captivating and exciting and bring pheasant hunters back time and time again to enjoy the sport. From September 15 to the end of March every year we chase wily pheasants through the Duchesne River Valley in eastern Utah. We look forward to this season all year long. We love the crisp mornings watching the gun dogs excitedly running through the cattails and rushes. Nothing beats the raucous call of the pheasants and the excitement as the bird explodes out of the thicket. The thrill of the shot and watching the dogs retrieve the pheasant and bring it back as they look up eager for a pat on the head.
At Falcon’s Ledge Lodge we love to see people experience pheasant hunting from all over the United States. We have had people from all across the country and all walks of life come and experience the thrill of the chase and the watch in awe as gun dogs show off their skill and ability at tracking and retrieving pheasants. We love to feed them a hearty breakfast in the morning and take them down to the Duchesne River Valley to our Orvis-endorsed pheasant hunting grounds. We love to see the excitement in their eyes as they walk into the fields and see the dogs work through the brush searching for pheasants. Our favorite part of course is seeing them return to the lodge and sit down to a spectacular dinner and tell us about the great shot they made, the pheasants that got away and all of the wonderful adventures they had that day. Pheasant hunting has become one of our favorite times of year because we get to share this sport we love with other people and help them make memories they will never forget.
