*** The Preserve is open for hunting and we have outstanding cover, little snow and lots of fast flying birds! All weekends are in high demand, especially the holiday period with between December 21 and January 5. Please call now so you can get your preferred dates. Thank you!
Late season hunting at Peaceable Hill is enjoyable and you can cover lots of ground. Birds will be found along the hedgerows, in the thick switchgrass, under juniper trees and in the annual field crops. We are fortunate to have many acres of heavy, natural cover and the birds will go there early and late in the day so be sure to poke around anyplace the cover is thick.
*** We supply ringneck pheasants, eggs and chicks! Please plan ahead for next year as we will begin to take orders again on January 15, 2014. For complete information including pricing click here:**Pheasant Eggs, Chicks and Hatchery Information**
You're not in Kansas anymore and you do not have to travel any farther than Shoreham, Vermont for some of the best pheasant hunting in the country. These pictures are Peaceable Hill. What makes for the best pheasant hunting? Habitat. Hunt pheasants where pheasants want to be, where they act naturally and offer the same challenges experienced in the Dakotas. Why hunt small areas of converted woodlands and areas unnatural to pheasants, when you can hunt many acres of fantastic natural habitat at Peaceable Hill in Vermont. If you are a first time guest and we do not meet your expectations your hunt is free. It's that simple. What other preserve or club has made you that offer? Please click the photos above to enlarge and look at the our outstanding pheasant habitat and call us today to reserve your next hunt.
Our 2013 hunting season has been great and we see pheasants in the fields each day. It is most enjoyable to hear the cackle of the roosters and see birds flying as they move from tight covers to feed locations. This year the heavy rain we had in the summer compromised the corn crop some, but the other cover is fantastic and we will again have hunting in grain sorghum, switchgrass and of course our wonderful native areas which provide excellent natural hunting at it's best.
Judy, and I greatly appreciate your support and friendship, and should you have any questions please feel free to give us a call at (802) 897-5914

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.
