EUROPEAN PHEASANT SHOOTING EVENTS and the FURY!
Yes we have shoot openings for 2023/24, we have 2 shoot dates open to host a shoot this fall! This is a one of a kind experience that you can only find here. See why hunters come from all over the world for this! This is extreme pheasant shooting and now clay target shooting included too! You can join a shoot with just one hunter or more! Email us for dates open, at firstname.lastname@example.org
YOU CAN JOIN A SHOOT THAT ANOTHER HUNTER HAS BOOKED THE DATE, or HOST A SHOOT AND PICK THE DATE. TWO DIFFERENT OPTIONS. New this year this program will include PHEASANT FURY, up to 160 clays in just 60 seconds or Wobble Trap and Shells for the clay shooting is included. Depending on the day and weather we at times shoot our new wobble trap range instead of Pheasant Fury. Both are a blast! Europeans are GREAT FOR OUR SENIORS, lots of shooting and a lot less walking required.

A comment from Kim Shira. I know there are others doing shoots at their resorts. Please consider a few facts before your booking.
1. We are the only resort that built “Disneyland for shooters” just for these shooting events.
2. We are the only resort that has the famous “show me bird BIRDS” where normal harvest is usually around 60%. Our extreme bird creates high volume shooting at birds up to 90 yards in the sky and 45 miles an hour. If you have been shooting at Doves – Ducks – Geese – that are coming to feed, land, water, or roost. You will not believe the shooting here, these birds are not coming in. They are flying for their life, climbing and gaining speed every second. Nothing in the hunting world like it.
3. We are the only resort that offer a shoot package, not grab a gun and go to a cow pasture and shoot. Our program has all the extras that others try to copy. Some have even copy and pasted our web site, but they can’t copy the shoot nor the birds here.
4. We are the only resort that hosts almost 50 shoots a year! Why? Because it is the best program in America.
5. We are the only resort that offers 52 dog handlers on staff to show off well over 110 labs that work here!
6. We are the largest pheasant resort in America for a reason. It is our staff, our birds, our farms, our dogs, our hospitality, that makes this resort one of a kind. One visit and you will understand why we proudly have over 85% repeat bookings! God bless!
TO BOOK A SHOOT OPENING CALL 620-674-8863. OFFICE HOURS 9-5 from one to 20 shooters can join a shoot. You do not need a group! Call or email us for dates to host a shoot or dates to join a shoot someone else is hosting!
Our European shooting program is like no other. Kim Shira, our owner, actually went to Spain to learn how to organize a European shoot, over 30 years ago! It is so exciting to be able to shoot at hundreds of pheasants. Shoot plenty of shells as the bird has the advantage here. THE ONLY THING COMPARABLE TO THIS IS AN ARGENTINA DOVE SHOOT, BUT THIS IS A LOT CLOSER TO HOME AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS CHEAPER! Pheasants will come flying high above you, some up to 90 yards! Plus they are moving along at a mere 40-45 miles per hour! Our shooting course has 10 stations, so we can take a minimum of 10 shooters, or up to 20 shooters. Most of the shoots are 300-400 or 500 bird shoots. But we can do up to 1500 birds. That’s a lot of shooting for a 3-hour shoot. One group last year shot 846 birds in 3 hours, but they had to spend over 4,486 shells doing it! One of the shooters told me, this was the best 3 hours of my life!? Another group in Feb. 09 did a 1000 bird shoot, downed 750 birds but shot over 7000 shells to do it! But, there is more to a fine quality European shoot than just shooting at pheasants. We add the King’s Feast before the shoot, then we do an orientation meeting with the history of Lord Ripon, the master of European bird shooting. THE MEETING IS NOW DONE ON A 52 INCH TV, THE SHOW TOOK 6 MONTHS TO PRODUCE! You will learn all about the shoot before it happens so you will have more fun and excitement! We load up on the hunt wagon after the Kings Feast for the ride to the shooting course. There the gundogs are introduced to the shooters by the dog handlers. All shooters rotate stations during the shoot. So you will have your time at the famous stands, like “roosters revenge”, “oh hell,” we even shoot out of a “goose pit” and from a “Caribbean Island”! There is no other shooting course like this in America! In the center of the course is a 25-foot release area, which is hidden in the timber; all you see is trees in front of you or over your head. NOTHING LIKE WHAT SOME RESORTS DO! THIS IS REAL and NATURAL SHOOTING where you can’t see where the birds are coming from. How many are coming, How high or High Fast. The pheasants begin their flight high above the ground, then have 60 yards of flying time before they get to the shooters. It is very challenging for the shooters. Few groups shoot over 70% of the birds. On our first shoot our professional staff spent 756 shells on a 175- bird shoot. They only downed 74 birds that day! They still make excuses for that day, and can’t wait for the next staff shoot.The shooting is so challenging, it is common for 2,000 to 9,000 shells to be spent in three hours! This depends on the number of birds in the shoot. In Dec. of 2008 we had a group from Arkansas shoot 3500 shells and downed 178 birds! They now have two shoots booked for the 2022 season!You must see it to believe it! JUST WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE! Another group from Exxon on Feb. 6, 2010 did a 1000 bird shoot! They had 14 or the 20 shooters with extended mag. 11 shot autoloaders. In all they spent over 7100 shells and got 703 birds! Another group of 20 shooters did a 300 bird event. None had ever been here before; it was a WOW experience they said. After the smoke cleared they had shot 21 cases of shells at 300 birds and got 96! This set a record for the 2010 season! The birds have complete advantage here, as high as a bird can be and 45 miles a hour. At times you are shooting at dots in the sky. That is why a 60% harvest in normal! You will not believe the fun it is. Call the office to host a shoot for your friends or clients. 620-674-8863 This is Disneyland for Hunters I have been told! Just look at some of the shooting course below. Great for corporate groups, church groups, any group that want to make wonderful hunting memories! Normal shooting is 6-8 boxes of shells per shooter on a 300 bird event. Then 8-10 boxes per shooter on a 400 bird event. Or consider that most shooters shoot 10-12 boxes of shells per shooter on the 500 bird shoots! Plus on top of the extreme shooting you will be watching world class labs do water retrieves. These dogs see more retrieves in a shoot then most dogs do in a season. It is a show!!! We are allowed to buy shells DIRECT FROM FEDERAL so our prices beat the discount stores, so get your shells here and save. On March, 27 2013 we hosted a 1220 bird event. After the smoke from over 9000 shells had cleared we have 686 birds in the freezer! This just shows you how much fun this is,,,, yet a true shooting experience that can’t be matched anywhere else. It is a real challenge for any shooter that gives the birds the advantage! Only done at Show Me Birds Hunting Resort, LLc. Call 620-674-8863 to make it happen for you and your hunting buddies. Or email us for openings to join a shoot at email@example.com
A refreshment break is held halfway through the shoot, mainly to give your shoulder a break! After the shoot, the birds are divided evenly by the number of shooters. They are then breasted by the staff and packaged for your convenience. In an effort to recover all birds hit, we have a trained retriever within sight of each station. As a bonus, all dog handlers have radios, so you can hear the excitement, excuses, and all the grand bull coming from your fellow shooters. Then to finish the day, we make a group photo of all the shooters and the day’s bag. Make sure your hunting buddies are sitting down when you show them a picture of you and hundreds of birds! Compare your bag of birds to those that went to states with a 3 or 4 bird bag limit! Most spent more money but shot less shells and birds. No bag limit here on our field hunts and European shoots. The real fun is at Show Me Birds, that is how it got it’s name. We are not in Missouri the show me state; we show you birds!!
