Our Story

Luckiamute Valley Pheasants, LLC operates our Western Oregon hunting preserve and is a partnership between Chuck and Kendall Cates. We are dedicated to a quality upland bird hunting experience. We believe that the enjoyment of upland bird hunting comes from time spent in an enjoyable setting with friends, family and companions, both human and canine. We don’t believe there is anything competitive in upland bird hunting, and we are not about how many birds we can bag. Our focus is on getting as close as we can to the wild bird experience that we brothers enjoyed growing up on this land. To that end, we limit the numbers of hunters and set a reasonable limit on cock pheasants-just as we experienced growing up.

It is our hope that we will be able to encourage families to enjoy the sport of upland game bird hunting. To that end, we encourage our clients to bring younger members of their family, spouses and significant others with them. We do not charge for those who are not hunting. We allow parents to share with their children who are old enough to hunt, and will only charge for required licenses.
