I grew up in Seattle in the 50's and
60's. My father would bring me with him to hunt pheasant
in the Eltopia, WA area starting in about 1960. The
60's were the glory days in the Columbia Basin for pheasant
hunting. Many wonderful days were spent hunting with
my dad and our dog Char. Pheasants were very plentiful
and daily limits were the norm.
I moved to the Columbia Basin permanently in the early
70's and after graduating from WSU and working a couple
years in the fertilizer industry, I went back to farming.
In 1997, I went to my first pheasant game farm with
some friends to hunt pheasant. The number of wild pheasant
had been on a steady decline for about twenty years
at this time and it looked like game farms were the
future of pheasant hunting. My wife and I discussed
the idea of opening our own and didn't make up our minds
until an old friend and hunting buddy brought over his
three boys in 1999. They hunted hard for three days
and saw nothing. After they left to go back home, we
decided to open a game farm. In October of 2000 we received
our license from WSDFW.
One of the prime objectives of the game farm is to promote
youth hunting. To this extent, is the reason behind
our annual Hunter Education Hunt which we sponsor along
with Richland Rod and Gun Club, and our local chapter
of Pheasants Forever. Limits Game Farm LLC also offers
hunts for youth (15 and under) for reduced rates.
We currently serve over 400 hunters per year and have
room for many more. Our hope is that you will consider
us for your next hunt.

We have a variety of habitat and terrain where you

We love catering to youth hunters. Many young hunters
