 Maintaining a Tradition of Exceptional Upland Bird Hunting in Southern Michigan for 27+Years

We'll be opening on SATURDAY,

Septeber 8, 2022 for the

2022 - 2023 Michigan Pheasant Preserve Hunting Season.

Thanks to all of our friends that have

hunted with us!

We had a great time and appreciate 

your patronage! Give us a call 

The "RNR" is nestled in the south-west corner of Jackson County, in south central Michigan about an hour from Ann Arbor; Kalamazoo, Lansing; the Indiana and Ohio state lines, and a reasonable distance from Chicago, Detroit and Grand Rapids.  

 The Ringneck Ranch team works diligently to maintain a clean, safe place for pheasant hunters to hunt with family, friends and their dogs. You or you and your group will have your own field. If you have questions or want to reserve a field and have some pheasants planted call The Ranch at 517/524-8294.

  We can hardly wait for the season to break loose and see upland bird hunters with their dogs coming up the lane during those first days of the season.

There isn't a prettier picture than a dog flushing or holding a point on a rooster pheasant. Suddenly that bird blows up out of the cover against a bright blue sky, followed by a hunters true aim, then a perfect retrieve as the dog proudly brings it to hand. It's hard to beat a day hunting Ringneck Pheasants at The Ringneck Ranch LLC.

Walk Up Field Hunts

You can come alone or bring family and friends for a half day or a full day walk-up field hunt. Bring your canine hunting buddy or let us set you up with one of our guides, and their incredible dogs at an additional cost.

Big Daddy's European Tower Hunt 

If you have a group of fifteen or more hunter's you should absolutely try a European Style Tower Hunt There are fifteen shooting stations for up to 30 shooters. Every shooter will have ten pheasants released in rounds of ten from the tower. Between rounds everyone rotates to the next station. 

 There's a walk-up hunt following the tower hunt. Load up your game bag with the birds that survived the gun fire zone. When you're tired and hungry head back to the clubhouse for a steak fry luncheon consisting of thick cut New York Strip Steaks, baked potato, tossed salad, warm dinner rolls and yes . . . dessert!  By the time you've finished your lunch the days harvest will be cleaned, bagged and ready for your cooler and the ride home.

October 2020 ~ April 2021: It's Pheasant Hunting Season at
The Ringneck Ranch LLC
We Love to Hunt
We're all about showing you an incredibly great time hunting for beautiful, cunning and great tasting Ringneck Pheasant in southern Michigan!

As always, The Ringneck Ranch LLC welcomes all the terrific hunters that come here to hunt pheasant. We appreciate all the pheasant hunters that come out to The Ringneck Ranch with co-workers, family and friends; all of them great outdoorsmen, women and young hunters who are working to keep Michigan's hunting heritage alive and well. 

We've hosted some spectacular hunts at the Ranch over the years. Countless shooters come out to bust those cagey ringnecks with great success . It doesn't matter whether you come out to spend a few hours field hunting, or if you're here to obliterate massive numbers of those crazy pheasants as they come burning out of the tower during one of our "Big Daddys European Tower Hunt , it's always another great day of pheasant hunting at The Ringneck Ranch LLC. We can't even begin to tell you how much we enjoy having  all of you out, and how much we appreciate the time you spend with us.

Whether your hunt party consists of you, or you and 29 of your closest hunting buddies, we're going to bend over backwards to make your time hunting with us unforgettable. When you get here we'll meet in the "Shot-Lodge". Bring your gear in, grab some fresh coffee and get registered. While you're busy gearing up to head out into the field Ron's going to be a step ahead of you planting your pheasants per your directions.

Don't think you'll have some oh-so-easy hunting, or that those birds are going to pop right up so you can take a pot-shot. Not these ringnecks. These birds are raised in extra large flight pens with heavy cover and minimal exposure to humans or dogs. Our ringnecks are strong flyers, and as wary and wily as any pheasant you'll hunt in Idaho, Iowa, Kansas or the Dakota's. You're going to have some high-times shooting.

Feel free to plug in your crock-pots; use the range, the fridge and just about anything else you need to pull a snack, lunch or dinner together. Give us a heads-up if you want to do a little grilling. We'll have the grill ready and waiting. If you want to skip hauling food we'll be glad to pull a lunch together for your group with advance notice. Give us a call (517/524-8294), or send an e-mail to: so we can show you just how The Ringneck Ranch LLC making it is happen when it comes to hunting pheasants.


 Big Daddy Ron's European Style Hunt

Ten Pheasants, Bird Cleaning & Our N.Y. Strip Steak Lunch
Per Shooter

If you 're looking for a great deal on pheasants and shooting that's a little more intense and action packed than what a field hunt offers, but really want to keep traditional field hunting alive you need to book into one of "Big Daddy Ron's European Hunts". That's right, this is it! You'll have to get up early to make the morning drive, but you won't be missing that hour or two of sleep for long. Coffee and fresh baked that morning pastries will be waiting in the Shot-Lodge, and once the cafine and sugar start to shake you awake you'll still have a few minutes to catch up with old and new friends and to get your gear; guns and shells together before the safety meeting. Then it's a short drive to the tower field and a quick walk to one of fifteen shooting stations and some incredible shooting action. You're going to have ten wiley pheasants per shooter pitched out of the tower in rounds of ten birds each for up to 30 shooters who will rotate to the next station after each round. 

While you're out in the firestorm things are happening at the Shot-Lodge as we pull together a spectacular lunch. You'll be working up a massive appetite for juicy and tender, thick-cut New York Strip Steaks, hot off the grill, served with salad, baked potato, rolls, beverage and seasonal desserts. You're going to eat a lot; maybe too much; but don't worry, you'll be burning that and more off  in the afternoon. There won't be any stretching out for a little afternoon snooze because after lunch it's back to the fields for a walk-up to kick up those birds that made it through the circle of fire that morning. It's the best of the best: a full day of running and gunning the entire Ringneck Ranch property for the days participants at Big Daddy Ron's European Hunt. When the days over you'll be loaded down with your own fresh, plucked clean and processed pheasants. We've included everything except a dog, your hunting clothes, shoes, gun and ammo. All you have to do is show up and shoot! You're going to have some hunting fun. When you contact us remember to ask about the cash discount for the groups coordinator who pulls it all together and makes a European Tower Hunt happen.    
Having a superior hunt always comes back to  the same three elements. You need healthy; hard flying game birds, great field cover for those birds to hunker down in while they wait for you and that great flushing or pointing dog to roust them out and bust them into flight. Did I mention the excitement of bringing your gun up to your shoulder; aiming, firing and watching a cock bird careen to the ground? And then there's the pure beauty of watching that incredible pointing or flushing dog make a perfect retrieve and  drop it right into your hand, all proud of himself and the great job he just did for you. The three magic elements of a great hunt: healthy, hard flying gamebirds. a dog that lives for the hunt, and exceptional cover.

Anyone that hunts at The Ringneck Ranch LLC will tell you that we have  those three magic elements all available to you in one place all at the same time. Birds here are treated to a special diet for maximum performance and conditioning and are housed in areas with plenty of room for them to hone their flight skills. 


We work hard to provide you not only with great service: the best birds; and a top notch facility, but also with superior cover in comparison to other preserves. The cover here is excellent in the early fall, but sorghum seems to come into it's own after it's been hit by a few heavy frosts, two or three wet snowfalls and a little freezing rain. One tip to remember is to always look beyond what's right in front of and around you. Remember to work those fence rows, wooded lanes, plots of corn and hit the brushy areas that are included in your designated hunting area.  Chances are whether you're hunting with your own dog, or one of ours you're going to find an extra bird or two hiding out in some of the most unlikely places.
