FEATHER QUEST

GETTING TO KNOW US

I REMEMBER WHEN.....
  We hear that a lot. And it's usually accompanied with a Dad, Brother, Uncle, or Friend, and can't forget the family dog. Memories of the past now being shared, great stories like this - "Dad would send us kids in the field and we would flush the birds up and he would shoot 'em. Heck back then we didn't have a bird dog and Dad said we didn't need one." or "We'd load up the truck... along with my Old Bird Dog... and that's how we did it back then." These memories, stories, experiences, thoughts of the past are brought to life again because the are being shared with others. And these always end up with a smile.

THIS IS OUR GOAL. TO GET PEOPLE BACK OUT TO THE FIELDS AND WOODS. CREATE MEMORIES, INSTALL TRADITIONAL VALUES, TEACH HOW TO RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT AND OTHER PEOPLE, ALL WHILE CREATING A SAFETY FIRST ATTITUDE.





 

Located in Western New York we have an understanding of the "Lack of Resources" when it comes to upland game.

  Having bird/gun dogs for many years and the sure joy of watching them work and hunt the fields for birds with an uncontrolled desire to please. We could no longer keep their passion to ourselves and decided to create a outfitter business so others could share in our experiences and create memories of their own. That being said FEATHER QUEST was established.

  Several objectives need to be in place before obtaining a Hunting Guide License (License #6973). Prior to even taking the New York State Hunting Guide exam I needed to complete certification in First Aide (American Red Cross) and Water Safety (NYS Boating Safety). Of which all need to be in good standing through out the period of which a Guide License is held.


Pheasant, Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock are our main game of interest here in Western New York.



With the scouting and research we have done in the Western New York region. We have familiarized ourselves with almost a public access lands from Carlton Hill to the Allegheny State Park and all locations in between including Zoar Valley MUA and Darien Lake State Park to name a few areas.

PLEASE NOTE - If a Wild Style hunt isn't to your liking and would like a more controlled and guaranteed hunt (bird availability). We offer an affordable alternative. Several Shooting Preserves are located with in the Western New York Area and many I have a relationship with. The purchase of birds means guaranteed action in the fields, just remember it is your responsibility to collectively harvest them. Shooting Preserves and Game Farms are an excellent means of enjoying a hunt before and after the regular seasons dates.
