OK, I know NB has some pheasant preserves and I think I'd like to spend a day on one. I'm near Fredericton and prefer to spend my time in the field rather than driving all day, so does anyone have personal experience with any pheasant preserves say near Woodstock, Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and/or St. Stephen areas. I would travel further if it meant a highly recommended preserve.

I'm not looking to fill my freezer with birds, rather I want to experience hunting over some good dogs and perhaps to make it even more memorable, do it with my muzzle loader.

There is one out on the Nashwaalk I hunted at last year. Its not a bad spot. I think you have to have your own dog but give him a call. I don't have the number but I'm sure someone on here has it. Not to far outside Marysville if you want to go looking for it, they have a sign out by the road.

go to fredericton outfitters, he has the information has he helped to set up the preserve. I know a couple years ago they would let you use a dog but you would have to see... This spring seen a wild turkey on route 8 right on the boundary of the pheasant preserve as well.

Dixon's in Riverside-Albert (Albert Co.) has a good reputation.
I've only been there to see the place -- never actually hunted there.
That was a few yaers back, and at least back then he had his own dogs you could use if you want. You can also stay overnight. He'll feed you, too, or at least they did back then.
Those who have been there say good things.
He's also got other species like chukars, woodcock, partridge, etc... Trap shooting warm-up is part of their package, too.
Open 7 days a week.
Shepody Hunting Preserve or Shepody PHeasant Hunting Preserve is what they're called. Good luck.

About 20 years ago a couple of buddies and I hunted the Shepody pheaeant preserve in or near Alma,they had their own dog but if I remember right you could bring your own dog ....lots of birds and lots of fun.

I just did a two day hunt in September with Hanscome Outdoor Adventures just outside of Perth-Andover. I was treated like royalty the whole time I was at their camp. I spent two nights and hunted over three days there. I had a great guide, and I worked over three excellent dogs. They use Brittany's, and they are so energetic and eager to please - a real treat to hunt over such well trained dogs. The food was great and plentiful, the accommodations more than comfortable, and the hunting was absolutely great. You can't beat the price, either.

When I went with Hanscome's, I booked at the April Sportsman's show and got a 2 day hunt for the cost of a day and a half. $400 for two nights accommodations, all meals, your guide and the dog, unlimited birds, cleaned and packed for you to go home.

I loved it so much, I'm going back in two weeks!

I own a preserve just outside fredericton and have been in operation for 6 yrs. Besides pheasants, I also raise quail for hunts and for anyone who wish to use my facilities for fog training.This year I am ordering a sml number of Hungarian partridge for hunts as they have become in demand at a preserve in Nova Scotia. If you want more info, call me at 459-3839.
