Smokin' gun hunting preserve is located in Glen Saint Mary Florida just 30 miles west of Jacksonville. Our goal is for everyone to have and experience an action packed day of wing shooting. Whether you are a single hunter that wants to experience a day of high volume exciting wing shooting fun or you are a corporate group that wants to rent the entire preserve for the day to entertain your clients or employees we want you all to have a experience and a day full of memories that will last a lifetime. Life is to short so let’s slow down and enjoy a day in the field at Smokin Gun Hunting Preserve.

As a hunter myself I want everyone to walk away at the end of the day and say we had the best time of our life. We specialize in pheasant hunts and will do some other hunts but our main focus is pheasants. I want to keep the hunts affordable so the working class hunter can experience a hunt that most can’t afford to go on. To travel to South Dakota and hunt pheasants at a ranch for 3 days will cost you around $2000. On top of that you are only allowed 3 pheasants a day. On our hunts you have the opportunity to shoot hundreds a day. Yes you read it correctly each tower hunt we release a minimum of 200 pheasants. No hunting license needed on any hunt. We carry a blanket preserve license that covers everyone.

Corporate/Private/Family Events

Book the Preserve and create your own day filled with hunting the courses for a variety of birds or entertain your family, friends, or clients with a mini pheasant throw booked for only you and your guests for the day!
