Pelee Island Pheasant Hunt

Pelee Island should be on your BUCKET LIST of hunts TO DO.

We were guests and hosted by Lonnie Beckett. As members  of SCI Canada, QDMA Canada and of course O.F.H.A.

Steve Elmy of Rack Stacker Deer Products and my self enjoyed an awesome pheasant hunt on Pelee Island with Lonnie as our host and guide.

The first of three pheasant hunts on the island. There were over 400 bird hunters on Canada’s southern most point of land.

The two day hunt starts at 8am until 5pm both days. Getting to a bird filled field early certainly helps in filling the two day ten bird limit.

I shot my first pheasant at 8:02 am. By 11 am we had 26 birds in the bag after walking non stop along hedge rows and cut wheat fields.

MNR and OPP were in the field checking licenses and patrolling the roads.

I talked briefly with the officers and no charges or problems had occurred by hunters.

Steve’s dog Kobe a Chocolate Lab performed great flushing tight sitting birds. Lonnies Nova Scotia Troller also did a great job finding a couple of roosters in thick hedges.
