At Brush Dale, we specialize in pheasant and chukar hunting on restored Iowa Grasslands. Our goal is to give you the most natural hunting experience possible in a preserve setting. You will be hunting a mixture of wild and released Ringneck Pheasants, Chukar Partridge and/or Bobwhite Quail in exceptional cover. If you want a hunt where you and your dogs' skill is challenged on every bird - then Brush Dale is the place for you!
Ringneck Pheasant and Bobwhite Quail reproduction is both critical to providing a natural hunting experience at Brush Dale and to sustaining the wild pheasant and quail populations. We typically release hundreds of pheasants and/or quail from our three gamebird surrogators every year. The Preserve has eight large food plots planted in corn and several smaller food plots planted in canola seed, millet, sorghum, sunflower, beets, turnips and more for pheasant, quail and deer.
We offer full-day, 8AM half-day and 8AM/10:15AM economy hunts 7 days per week and PM half-day and economy hunts on weekends and holidays. To make a reservation, call 563-672-3291. If you need to cancel or change your reservation, please let us know at least 4 hours prior to your scheduled hunt.
Brush Dale is unique, not only because of the diversity of its terrain and wild game, but because of its location in far-eastern Iowa, just 10 miles from the Mississippi River and the River's abundance of waterfowl. In addition to pheasant and chukar, we hunt quail, wood ducks, wild turkey, and furred game. During duck season we might spend the early morning hunting wood duck at one of our ponds and the rest of the day hunting pheasant.
If you are a visitor to Iowa, pheasant hunting at Brush Dale will save you a significant amount of money in hunting license fees. Annual Preserve Hunting Licenses, for hunting game birds on any of Iowa's hunting preserves for the calendar year, as well as most other Iowa Hunting Licenses may be purchased at Brush Dale. Preserve Licenses can only be purchased at a Preserve. A Preserve License with Habitat Stamp is just $22.00, whether purchased by an Iowa or out-of-state resident. Other types of hunting and fishing licenses may be purchased online, or by calling 800-367-1188.
