At Meadow Brook Game Farm in Westmoreland, Tennessee, just north of Nashville, you can try your hand at bird hunting and see if you get a quail or pheasant. Now why hunt birds rather than, say, deer?
Well, if you’ve ever spent a whole day sitting in a blind waiting to shoot a deer, you know it can get boring. There’s more excitement to hitting a flying bird compared to a buck that’s just standing there, eating an apple on the ground. There’s a lot of downtime for hunting deer where a hunter could just listen to music, read a book or even sleep. That doesn’t sound like hunting, does it? With birds, there’s just more action and excitement.
Easier on the Senses
How about smells? Deer camp doesn’t always smell so good. Between the deer urine smell and/or skunk spray hunters put on their clothing and farts and beer, deer camp can stink!
More Time to Hunt
Generally speaking, deer season lasts a couple weeks whereas bird season lasts a couple months. Therefore, you get more time to hunt birds, and that’s a good thing.
One of the nice things about hunting birds is you can talk out loud with your fellow hunters when birds aren’t around– and then, when they are, get quiet. However, with deer hunts, you’ve got to be quiet most of the time for fear of spooking an unseen buck.
Man’s Beset Friend
You can’t take dogs with you on a deer hunt, but you can when you’re hunting birds. In fact, most bird hunters want dogs with them since they can help out so much, from companionship to bird retrieval.
