Game Farm

 Dry Hollow Ranch

Shooting Preserve and Game Bird Farm
near Pomeroy, Washington

Ring-necked Pheasants, Bobwhite Quail and Chukar Partridge
  Hunting Season runs September through May

Dog training birds released year round on request 

No limit on our game farm birds 
No Hunting License required.

The Ranch offers quality bird habitat for our hunts.  Land that was once farmed has been developed into premier cover, habitat feed plots, and watering areas. In addition to continual efforts to revive and nurture natural bird populations through improved habitat, Dry Hollow Ranch also releases mature, fast flying birds for hunters interested in a more “sure thing.”  Restocked Birds make a great way to train young hunters and pups! 
We also have terrain for senior and physically challenged hunters available. 
If your gun-dog needs a good workout before the general season, or
if you like to keep him “tuned” our hard flying Upland birds should do the trick.  
Purchase some of our colorful birds released in challenging cover to help
fill the game bag and your spirits. 

One of our pheasant flight pens.  
These birds are not crowed,
human contact is minimal, and we raise them to be wild!
Raising birds this way creates explosive , naturally strong flyers.
