2/29/20 Guided Upland Bird Hunt


FCS will hunt upland birds with Mike Schumann again on 2/29/20 at the old Dismukes/Bieberstein Ranch near Dime Box.  They have 900 acres of blackland prairie covered with native grass and short brush, post oak savannah with improved pasture, lightly wooded uplands, and heavily wooded bottomlands – an ideal match for upland birds like quail, pheasants, and chukars.  We had several highly successful hunts with Mike Schumann (see the below picture and the many Hunting Reports).  On 2/23/19 eight FCS hunters killed a record 101 birds, including 63 quail, 22 chukars and 16 pheasants.

This will be a full day hunt starting at 9:00 AM and ending around 3:00 PM (not counting travel time).  You can choose from 18 quail, 9 chukar, or 6 pheasant, or a mixture of all three (most hunters choose a mixed bag).  As with all ranches in Central Texas, these will be pen raised birds.  The price is $250 per person.  An additional package of birds costs $180.  A 20% tip ($50) is highly recommended.  The hunt includes:

  • Kids (15 years old & under) hunt FREE with paid adults
  • FREE shooting lessons
  • Sporting clays and bird processing included (lunch not included)
  • Hunting dogs will be provided (if you would like to bring your well-trained (for upland bird hunting) and well-mannered dog, you can but only one or two dogs can come and we must clear your dog with Mike and the other hunters)

The most that we can take is eight hunters and we currently the following commitments::

  1. Mike Pozhenko and 15-year-old guest.
  2. Stu Smithson (and 15-year-old Caroline Smithson – she is not counted as a “spot”)
  3. Bret Mercer (and 14-year-old guest Drew Landry – not counted as a “spot”)
  4. Matt Smith
  5. 14-year-old Josh Smith; supervised by Matt Smith
  6. Jose Primera

That leaves two spots open.  The Event Hierarchy applies.  An RSVP is required to Steve Fusco at steven.fusco@gmail.com or 512-584-6258.  A $100 deposit is due immediately.  Mike accepts PayPal (recommended) and checks.

The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate.
