About Us

 Pheasant Hunting

Unlimited Pheasant's main objective is to provide hunting opportunities for pheasants in the Klamath Falls area. Pheasants are purchased from reputable breeders and then released by volunteers at various plant sites. The majority of sites are private farm lands that owners allow us to plant and hunt their properties. In addition, Miller Island Wildlife area also receives birds from Unlimited Pheasants that are planted on selected hunt days.


Youth Pheasant Hunts

Unlimited Pheasants is active in the annual Youth Pheasant hunts at Miller Island. We provide a number of the birds for release. Our members volunteer their time by providing lunch as well guiding some of the youth by providing dogs.


Pheasant Restoration

Unlimited Pheasants is actively attempting to restore a wild-bird population on the Miller Island Wildlife Area. Surrogators that house pheasant chicks up to about 6 weeks old are being used to introduce hundreds of semi-mature birds into the wild. There have already been sightings of these birds currently living in the area.                 




Unlimited Pheasants was started as a non-profit organization in 1976 by Bill Vanderpol, Andy Silani, and Jake Elliott to restore pheasants in the Klamath Falls area. In the first year, these people purchased about 30 pheasants for release in the area. Beginning in 1977, fund-raising dinners have been held to generate money to purchase pheasants. The major focus of UP is to provide pheasant hunting opportunities for both adults and children in the Klamath Basin as well as to try to introduce birds back into the wild.

In the late 1970s, UP was releasing about 800 per year while that number jumped to about 2500 birds in the 1990s. Over the past 38 years, UP has released over 50,000 pheasants in the Klamath Basin. The ability to purchase these birds come from the generosity of members who contribute to UP as well as donors who provide prizes at the fund-raising dinner.

Secretary-Kristy Naughton

Unlimited Pheasant's Secretary- Kristy NaughtonI have lived in the Klamath Basin since 2000, my family and I joined Unlimited Pheasants in 2001. I became a board member in 2008, was asked to be the Secretary in 2009 and then the Treasurer in 2010. Along with bird hunting, my family loves to go camping and fishing. We spend as much time in the outdoors as we can. I enjoy helping with the youth hunts and seeing how excited the kids get especially when they get a Pheasant for the first time. It's nice to see kids get so excited at the youth hunts that you then see them out hunting during the season. Keeping the kids involved is what will keep Unlimited Pheasants going for many years to come, and as long as I am able and needed I will continue to help too.
