         Elkhorn Lake Hunt Club is open to the public, not limited to memberships, offering Ohio ringneck pheasant, chukar partridge and Hungarian partridge hunting, as well as sporting clays and 5-stand clays shooting. Our hunting packages allow you  that once-a-year hunt, or let you try out our facilities.

          Our pheasant season opens September 1st with the dog training special, September 1 through mid October, using your dog for a 6 hen-pheasant bag limit per hunter for $80, closed for Family Field Day the 4th Saturday in September... and continues October 1 through March 31st for guided hunts, or using your own dog. Weekend minimums apply.

             We also offer an April Spring Quail Special for dog owners. Reservation required by March 25th. Watch email newsletter for details.          

           Our hunts consist of morning or afternoon reservations  so we can better ensure your safety. Payment is for birds released. Although we do our best to see that you get your birds, we cannot guarantee your ability, or that of your dog.
          We offer good quality ringneck pheasant, chukar and Hungarian partridge hunting, the best possible to find anywhere. Our experienced dogs and handlers are here to see you have an enjoyable hunt. Why travel so far for what’s so close to home?
