Philip Melugin is owner and president of Phoenix Home Care, a home healthcare organization that services clients in Missouri and Kansas. But home healthcare isn’t the only way Philip Melugin is combining his passion with business. Melugin owns and runs Pheasant Run Ranch, which features 5,000 sprawling acres of wild bird hunting in Kansas. Today, Philip Melugin talks to Interviewing Experts about the ranch.
Interviewing Experts: We’ve seen photos of Pheasant Run Ranch. It looks beautiful.
Philip Melugin: It’s my home away from home. 5,000 acres of beautiful green grass and wildlife.
Interviewing Experts: Explain a little about the hunts available at Pheasant Run.
Philip Melugin: We have a variety of wild birds, including turkey, pheasant, and quail. Our staff works hard to create an environment that keeps birds on our land, rather than migrating elsewhere. Our bird hunters can opt for a guided hunt and we also include accommodations for those wishing to spend the night to be well-rested for hunting.
Interviewing Experts: What about deer hunting?
Philip Melugin: We currently have whitetail deer. Whitetail deer hunting season kicks up in the fall and lasts into early winter, so we have quite a crowd at the lodge that time of year.
Interviewing Experts: Does someone have to have a hunting license to participate in hunts at Pheasant Run Ranch?
Philip Melugin: Yes, a hunting license is required. Residents can choose between one-time licenses, annual hunting licenses, and lifetime hunting licenses. Licenses are available through the Kansas Department of Wildlife at www.kdwp.state.ks.us.
Interviewing Experts: If someone wants to participate in a hunt at Pheasant Run, how do they sign up?
Philip Melugin: There are dates currently available, but I recommend anyone interested in coming to Pheasant Run make reservations now. You can call 785-476-5736 or sign up for hunts via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interviewing Experts: Can reservations be made through that phone number and e-mail address, as well?
Philip Melugin: Yes. When you call or e-mail to schedule a hunt, just let us know that you’re interested in accommodations, as well. Even for those who aren’t staying the night, though, you’ll have access to our newly renovated main lodge, with internet access and satellite TV, if you want to relax throughout the day.
