Frequently Asked Questions


What is upland hunting?

Upland hunting is bird hunting of pheasants, quail, partridge, grouse, chucker or other birds which make their habitat in croplands, grass fields or wooded terrain.  Upland usually involves the use of specially trained pointing or flushing dogs.


Do I need to have my own hunting gear?

No.  Guns and all necessary gear including boots, vests, gloves and safety goggles are provided with our Excursion Package. See Hunting for more information.


Do I need a license or any permits?

No.  Most hunts take place on privately-owned game farms which do not require licenses or permits.


Is it possible to hunt off-season?

Yes.  Wisconsin Adventures guide services may be used year-round provided the availability of game farms.


How long is a typical hunt?

At Wisconsin Adventures we tailor the day to your needs and preferences.  Most hunts last two to three hours, but they may be shorter or longer depending on the amount of birds desired, the distance covered and your time requirements.


How safe is upland hunting?

Ultimately any activity that involves the use of firearms puts the user at risk of injury, danger or harm. Our goal at Wisconsin Adventures is to make the experience as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone involved.  Prior to every hunt, we equip our clients with the proper safety gear and with basic gun-handling skills.   A pre-target shooting practice may be arranged to familiarize clients with our guns and increase the chances of a successful hunt.


We reserve the right to deny our services to anyone unwilling to acknowledge their responsibility in the safety of themselves and anyone involved on the hunting premises.
