Flying pheasants, bird dogs pointing, retrievers fetching and girls gunning. Or more appropriately, wing shooting ladies, sporting vintage attire from the glory days of upland bird hunts, demonstrating their markswomen’s skills on rocketing pheasants.
Royal Flush, a 400 acre bird hunting preserve in Giles County, provides the experience during their annual continental pheasant hunt for women only. Ladies can invite their gentlemen to participate in the white tablecloth dinner after the hunt, but only the gals get to shoot.
Twin brothers Rick and Randy Chambers also offer quail and pheasant hunts to the general public from November through February. Royal Flush’s charming and lovely hostess, Becky Yannayon, includes fresh homemade bread and fried pies to the over the top cuisine at the feast. Overnight accommodations complete the adventure for weary hunters relaxing by the wood fire in the preserve’s cabins.
Plenty of upland birds, good dogs, exceptional food and a hunting paradise: I need to practice on the skeet range. A superb southern bird hunt is as good as a Royal Flush. It cannot be beat!
