Summer is here and we are looking forward to the opening of the Preserve to hunting on September 1! Our seasonal crops look great as we have had perfect weather for the corn, sorghum and seasonal grasses, all of which give Peaceable Hill some of the finest pheasant hunting habitiat in the eastern US.
Of course many of you will want to know about our progress since the fire. We have cleaned everything up and constructed a new barn. The pheasant hatch was excellent this year and we have approximately 5800 birds ready for the flight pens. These fast Kansas Blue Backs and the larger Mongolian pheasants will provide you with outstanding hunting right through April of 2015. Our 2014-2015 membership packages are available now so please be sure to contact us soon.
Peaceable Hill Pheasant Hunting Preserve is a “Regulated Shooting Ground” located in the beautiful Champlain Valley of Vermont. The Valley is typical New England habitat rich with active dairies, apple orchards, diversified farms and conservation managed buffers. At Peaceable Hill we have hundreds of acres of outstanding pheasant and upland bird habitat that consists of open cropland with corn, milo and grain fields bordered by swale grass ditches and cool season grasses with thicket edges. We also are fortunate to have many acres of "traditional" Vermont game bird habitat. We manage our cover crops so that excellent pheasant hunting is available year-round. We also have available for sale through our hatchery pheasant eggs, chicks and mature birds.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing all our friends, both old and new!

Peaceable Hill is comprised of two farms; The Home Farm and The Gunnery. Each farm is managed exclusively for prime bird habitat, and each has unique characteristics which will satisfy any situation. Bird contact is what Peaceable Hill is all about. Whether you are training a young pup or challenging an experienced brace, the combination of cover, bird contact and the surrounding beauty will satisfy all your senses. Loud cackling Ringnecks, strong and flashy, blasting off from under the nose of a tight Pointer, or a birdie Flusher bumping a skittish hen, is the experience you will not easily forget!

Our goal is to provide you with an outstanding experience and we have the desire and ability to customize a hunt to your
needs. We have spectacular fields and open cropland habitat which allows excellent visual reference for training a
young pup, as well as secluded areas where distractions are minimal. We plant fields of grain sorghum (Milo), corn,
perennial switch grass and reed canary grass. Crops and planting arrangements are planned in order to establish nesting cover,
feed plots and challenging cover. Our natural and planted covers make for outstanding hunting the in the fall and hold up very well through the winter. We have fantastic hunting right into the month of May.
You are welcome to hunt with your dogs, or we can arrange a professionally handled hunt with experienced guides working over trained pointers or flushing dogs.
For those of you visiting Vermont who would like to hunt with us, single day hunting licenses are available for $5.00. To obtain a one day Vermont license, you must have a current hunting license from any state or you have had a previous hunting license. You also can get a license if you have completed a certified Hunter Safety course.
Whether you are a single hunter looking to train your new pup, or if you have a large group and need an all-day guided
hunt, we can accommodate you. Please call anytime for further information, references or to book your hunt. Same
day reservations are always welcome based on availability. We also have available for sale through our hatchery pheasant eggs, chicks and mature birds. Simply click on the links below for more information.
