Iowa Pheasant Hunting at The Reserve, the wildest hunt you will ever experience!

About Us

The Reserve offers an unparalleled pheasant hunting experience for three simple, yet unique, reasons. First, The Reserve is located in the geographic heart of Madison County, thus ensuring an abundance of pheasants derived from the short, but active, flight patterns between other pheasant hunting plantations in Central and Southern Iowa.

Second, our commitment to habitat restoration and conservation has allowed game populations to thrive. Nestled in picturesque Madison County, Iowa, The Reserve’s 750-acre grounds provide a quality pheasant habitat with water, food plots and cover for the growth and reproduction of pheasants. We offer plenty of birds to hunt by liberating birds into the wild population for each hunt. No other pheasant hunting service does it quite the same. And, most certainly, no one does it better.

Finally, our experienced guides strive to make every hunt memorable and safe. Our professional pheasant hunting guides are expert dog handlers and can always help guests who do not have their own dogs get into birds. They, along with some of the pheasant hunting dogs in the business, will ensure abundant shooting opportunities that challenge even the most veteran of hunters.

The Reserve is the perfect place for corporate hunts and small groups. The main cabin has space for meetings and hearty dining. The Reserve is also a short distance away from the Des Moines International Airport, with hotels located conveniently nearby.

Safety is our #1 priority, so orange hats and vests are required for field hunters. Sturdy boots, a long-sleeved shirt, jacket or sweatshirt and long pants are also recommended.

Every hunter must have a hunting license. Licenses and habitat stamps are not available for purchase at The Reserve, but they can be purchased from the Iowa DNR or at Scheels. In order to ensure complete safety, we ask that you check the state law for hunter safety requirements, prior to your arrival.
