PHEASANT SHOOTS

As avid hunters, we implemented European-style pheasant tower shoots at Stella to extend our hunting season and provide a unique outdoor activity for corporate entertaining. Pheasant Tower shoots are a relaxed, social alternative to traditional hunting and do not require a license.
