the Hunt is on!

By Janet Buccirosso

Although Paul Harnica is a third generation farmer who works 500 acres of land in Dundee, taking care of 60 head of Black Angus steers as well as raising corn, soy, wheat and hay was not enough for this active person. Seventeen years ago, Paul, who is the owner of the Dundee Pheasant Farm, decided that he needed something to keep him busy during the winter months…or, I should say busier. To that end, he made the decision to open the pheasant farm. He has 300 licensed acres and provides both pheasant and chukar partridge for his clientele.
Located at 8657 Bunce Road, Dundee Pheasant Farm is open from September 1st through April 1st and hunting is by reservation only. Hunting is available during this time every day except Christmas Day. During the season they provide four fields with cover for shoots with a 4 pheasant per hunter minimum. You can bring your own dogs or make arrangements with Paul ahead of time to have dogs provided for you. You must bring your own firearms and only steel or non-lead shot are allowed. Hunter orange clothing is required. Per Paul, a hunting license is no longer required in Michigan when hunting on preserves.
Paul states that custom service is a priority. He strives to provide each of his customers with an exciting and satisfying experience, whether you are a seasoned hunter or this is your first hunting experience.
Paul and his wife, Cheryl, met while attending Dundee High School. They have two children, Holly and Kyle, as well as a yellow lab named Libby.
