Cedar Hill Farm

Our Story

Pheasant Game Farm

We are a Pheasant and Chukar Game Farm, as well as a Yellow Perch Fish Farm near Beaver Dam Wisconsin. We offer some of the best native Wisconsin habitat available. We have cattail, canary grass, sorghum fields, dogwood, prairie grasses, and small wood lots to name a few. When the heavy snows of winter make the cover lay down, our late season cattail hunts kick into high gear. We always have exceptional habitat no matter what time of the year you want to hunt.

My wife and I purchased the game farm on September 30th of 2008 and the whole Sackett family has been working tirelessly on it ever since. Our first goal was to provide the highest quality birds possible and I believe we have done that. We have researched and found a high quality strain of pheasant that develops above average tail feathers, and also found a superior feed that is high in protein which allows the pheasants to feather out properly. Because of that, they provide a fast flying, high energy, high quality hunt. We want you to go away thinking our birds and habitat gave you the real Wisconsin pheasant hunting experience!

We have removed old trees on the property, ripped out fencelines, we are working with the Wisconsin Waterfowl Association, US Fish and Wildlife Service, WDNR, and Ducks Unlimited, to improve the wetlands on our property. We are planting bushes and grasses to improve upland habitat, practicing predator control, and doing major improvements to the buildings. We have set up a temporary clubhouse that we plan to use for the next couple of years and then build a much nicer one in the near future.

At Cedar Hill we do things differently. We rent the entire parcel behind the house or the new land we leased across the road for either the morning or the afternoon. Morning hunts typically start around 8:00, and the afternoon hunts start at noon or after. If we have no other bookings that day, you are welcome to spend the entire day. You will never see another hunting party while hunting at Cedar Hill. When you book your hunt, the entire parcel on either side of the road is yours for the morning or afternoon. If you shoot more than you released, no worries, scratch birds are free.

We will be starting August 1st for those guys that would like to get an early start training those new pups. This should allow plenty of time to get these young dogs tuned in for the upcoming fall hunting season. You will continue to see big improvements at Cedar Hill. We have superior birds at reasonable prices released on exceptional habitat and remember scratch birds are always free. If you’re looking for a true Wisconsin pheasant hunt, try Cedar Hill Game Farm. We guarantee you will have a quality experience.

Come hunt with the giants of customer service. You won’t be disappointed.

  • I brought my 6 month old lab out to Cedar Hill in mid September. Doug helped set myself and my dog up for a successful hunt and donated his entire morning to offering advice and ensuring a spectacular service. You don't get that type of treatment from many game farms and for that reason I have been back two times since!! Thanks Doug!!

  • I hunt and shoot a lot of pheasants during the normal season on public lands so this was my first time on a game farm with my brother. It was an absolute blast! If you are thinking about trying it, DO IT! Great host, great land, and great birds. They make you feel like you're hunting with a best friend. I love the variety of land and how he tries his best to make the hunt as natural as possible. Ended the day with 7/10 pheasants with one miss, over all great day and will for sure be back! Thanks again!!

It doesn't matter if your looking for a nice relaxed hunt on quality birds or breaking in new dogs and shooters I'd highly recommend Cedar Hill. We will be back, thanks again Doug for a great morning.
