Exeter Game Farm is a fully-licensed bird hunting preserve. We are located in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, along the Ausable River and minutes from the small town of Exeter. Our game farm is a 200 acre mix of open grass fields, medium bush and river flats - perfect for bird hunting.
Since 1993, hunters have chosen Exeter Game Farm because it is the ideal place to sharpen their skills and keep their hunting dogs well-trained. We have ring-necked pheasants, bobwhite quails, and chukar partridges on site. We release the birds and you do the rest!
Our bird hunts work best if there are at least 2-3 hunters, and we can accommodate a group of up to 20 hunters at a time.
After hunting, you and your group can relax in our large cabin or walk along our forest trails and pond.
Our thanks to Dave Goodison and his team for featuring the Farm. Additional thanks to Chuck and Laurie.
We are open daily from sunrise to sunset, 365 days a year with weather and bird supplies permitting.
Call or e-mail Angelo today to book your hunt:
Price per bird: $20
Price per bird: $15
Price per bird: $10
There is a $100 minimum release of birds per hunter.
This is equal to either five pheasants, or seven chukars, or ten quail. You may, of course, combine different birds as part of your minimum order. For example, three pheasants and three chukar, or four quail and three pheasants – so long as a $100 worth of birds or more is released per hunter.
If you do not own a hunting dog we will provide one for your hunt free of charge.
Any group purchasing at least $2000 worth of birds (for instance, at least 100 pheasants) is entitled to a full-day hunt if requested at time of booking.
All other hunts are half-days (i.e. morning or afternoon hunts).
Please note that we do not clean or pluck your birds. However, you are free to do this on site if you wish. Before you take the birds home you will have to fill out a form to take with you stating the number and type of birds (this is required by law).
All hunters need to bring a valid small game hunting licence, a firearms licence, and your own gun and ammunition. As well, all hunters and visitors should bring hunter's orange hats and outerwear.
Mosquito repellent and boots are also recommended on a seasonal basis.
