Jeff and Dog Experiencing Wingshooting

Pheasant

European-style driven Pheasant Shoots

Hunters are stationed in 10 blinds surrounding a hidden tower. Three hundred birds are flighted as single or doubles through the shooters as blinds are rotated every 15 shots. Our elite experienced Labrador Retrievers collect every downed bird.  Events consist of two 20-gun shoots: one morning session and one in the afternoon.  Refreshments are provided during the shoot. Pheasant shooting is a perfect activity for charity fundraisers.  Contact us to learn how you can host one of these events.

Dove

Dove Shooting in Alabama is a deeply rooted southern tradition and has been an annual event at Westervelt Lodge for over forty years.  It’s the time honored tradition of a pre-hunt fried chicken lunch or BBQ shared with good friends.  After lunch you are transported to the dove fields in the early mid-day.  Car radios are faithfully tuned to live SEC college football games as dove hunters are dropped off at pre-determined stands.  Our dove fields have been planted and prepared for several months in anticipation of the season, doing everything legally possible to insure a “good shoot.”  Food and water are important ingredients for a good dove field, as well as proximity to good roosting habitat.  Fields are routinely scouted to provide our clients with the latest intel on dove activities. We like to offer our dove hunts to previously organized or corporate groups who are looking for the “Westervelt Experience” and an enjoyable sporting environment. Dove season opportunities are based the availability of birds, as doves are migratory wild birds that can go and come at will.

Quail

At Westervelt Lodge in Alabama, our hard-running bird dogs and experienced hunting guides take you on a traditional plantation-style quail hunt full of fast flushing birds and multiple opportunities to fill your game bag. Our intensive quail management program has created the optimum landscape for a challenging experience. The towering Southern pines surround well-groomed quality hunting courses. We offer plantation-style quail hunting or mixed bag hunting that include chukar and pheasant. From the challenge of hunting hard-flying birds in our old growth upland pine forests to our fencerow style of open field hunting, our bird hunting experience is unmatched.
