Experience the thrill of a of high flying pass shooting usually only available at a European driven pheasant hunt. Visit Lower Wetumpka Shotgun Sports Club for our next continental pheasant hunt to have that same rush.
Shooters are awaiting at sixteen stations arranged in a circle around the tower. At each station pheasants are released from our 80 foot tower. Periodically an air horn is sounded and shooters unload and rotate to the next station until all stations are shot. The Club utilizes retrievers to harvest the downed birds so all you have to do is shoot and enjoy. At the end of the shoot all birds are cleaned and divided evenly as shooters are enjoying a nice steak lunch with all the trimmings.
