Pheasant hunting in the special purpose state hunting grounds is organized as an independent hunting phase or in combination with hunting other types of small game, such as brown hare, gray partridge and mallard or even in combination with hunting ungulates.
In individual pheasant hunting the hunting guest may decide to hunt pheasant with short hunt out and by culling high-flying pheasants from stands, or with the help of specially trained gun dogs, particularly setters. Dogs with excellent smell find pheasants and point to their position with a firm stance, a sort of crouch or “set”, and then at the given command chase it from its hiding place.

Hunting pheasant in combination with other types of small game is opted by hunting guests predominantly in the morning and in the areas of hunting grounds with low vegetation, which provides the small game species enough protection for their existence and survival.
Hunting guests also opt for a combination of hunting pheasants in the morning and stand hunting of ungulates in the evening.
