The owners, Dennis and Terri Courtad of Bucyrus, OH,
added additional land to provide hunters over 400
acres of excellent Ohio hunting habitat for pheasant,
hungarian partridge, chukar partridge, and other
birds. Other birds, available by request, require additional
time to prepare for the hunt. The land is separated into multiple Ohio hunting areas so different groups can be
hunting at the same time, each having their own hunt.
For your convenience, individual or corporateprepaid bird cards are available. Take careful note of the way these prepaid cards work.
Elk Ridge offers guided hunts or you can bring your own dogs. With guided hunts a guide and dogs are furnished to ensure you have a quality hunt every time. Hunts last from two and a half to four hours depending on how long they wish to hunt and how well they shoot.
After the shoot, hunters can relax and unwind in a comfortable, large clubhouse. Other amenities offered are a light lunch and bird cleaning.
For the younger hunter, Elk Ridge annually sponsors the Crawford County Pheasants Forever Youth Pheasant Hunt. All the birds and lunch are provided by Elk Ridge, with volunteer guides donating their time and dogs. Before each hunt, a description of Pheasants Forever and a safety class is given. This is a great experience for first-time pheasant hunters and an enjoyable day for everyone involved.
