Exclusive Guest Opportunities

• Who We Are •

Nestled in the heart of the Niagara region and conveniently located within a short drive from Toronto and Buffalo, Run-A-Fowl Gentlemen’s Hunt and Sporting Club offers a private state of the art preserve, one-of-a-kind facility, luxury accommodations, warm and friendly service and a first class culinary experience. It is an ideal setting for both private functions and corporate retreats for our exclusive guests.

In 2010 Run-A-Fowl Gentlemen’s Hunt and Sporting Club was purchased and developed by two avid upland hunters and corporate executives in order to create an unsurpassed facility in Southern Ontario to enjoy the sport more than a few times a year. Prior to the development of this facility, our pheasant preserve had been in operation for over 27 years as Vandermeer Pheasantry.

Bill Vandermeer, with his expert knowledge of birds, dogs and general farming methods, still plays a large part in day-to-day operations of the preserve.

Home to 200 acres of well-groomed fields complete with pheasants, chuckers and grouse, the club caters to both avid and first-time hunters and offers an array of on-site activities and amenities including; skeet shooting, fly fishing, archery, paddle boating, canoeing, outdoor pavilion, 50’s diner, drive-in theatre, games room, sauna, cigar lounge, viewing tower and hiking trails. Guests are encouraged to relax and experience all that the club has to offer.
