    Pheasant hunting preserve in WA

    With hunting season closed in BC I thought Iíd share my experience of hunting at Snow Mountain Game Farm in Mount Vernon. Itís very affordable and should be open at least a couple more months unless he runs out of birds.

    First things first - itís more for dog training than any sort of challenging hunt. The guy will just plant birds in a hay field when you arrive and you can hunt at your leisure. Like many pen raised pheasants some prefer to run rather than fly, not much you can do about it. But the pricing is cheap so itís not the end of the world leaving the runners alone.

    Second up. Crossing the border with guns. He does have a loaner pump action if thatís your thing. I did things the hard way and got the ATF form 6 (took less than a week, they were very helpful when I missed off the postcode). I also got a WA small game license as I intended to bring birds back. US customs did ask to see the form 6 and the hunting license, Canada customs inspected my gun and truck but didnt ask for anything. They seemed more concerned that my tailgate was loose than having dead pheasants in the truck during a bird flu outbreak but Iíll take that as a win.

    Third up crossing the border with a dog. I brought all the vet certificates and registration papers but didnít get checked. You canít bring opened bags of dog food into the US but they never checked.

    Overall I was pretty happy with how things worked out. Other than my dogís behaviour 😂😂

    Thanks for all the information. I'm thinking of going south next year with the dog.

    This helps!
