Driven Shooting in America

Blixt & Co

Blixt & Co. offers premier, traditional, driven pheasant and partridge shooting in the United States of America, and it’s our goal to bring a long-held English tradition, to the majestic American West.

Jennifer & Lars Magnusson

Helmed by Lars & Jennifer Magnusson, Blixt & Co. channels experience and knowledge that need little introduction, and a standard of tradition, etiquette, and excellence that require no exaggeration.

 

In 2009 Blixt & Co. secured the sporting rights on Lazy Triple Creek, 2,200 acres in Idaho, which became the catalyst to test the vision of bringing traditional Driven Shooting to America. Over the next four seasons, the Blixt & Co. team proved that not only is traditional Driven Shooting possible in North America, but an authentic experience that make customers return again and again.

 

In the fall of 2011, preparations began for the next rendition of Driven Shooting in America; a new shooting estate, Twin Peaks, developed as the first Driven Red-leg Partridge shoot in North America. Fast and challenging, the Red-leg Partridge is a sporty bird and a thrill among enthusiasts. The rolling hills and valleys of the 620 acre Twin Peaks Estate was a perfect place to create a shoot that is a spectacular sporting venue. Popular in Spain and England, the Red-leg Partridge is imported and custom hatched in the United States. The first season in 2012 was a resounding success, with the sportsman being enthusiastic for next season’s challenge!

 

The 2016 season adds a new and exciting property to the offerings. Ash Hill, a 1600 acre property is conducive to high pheasant and will provide a new venue in addition to Twin Peaks.

The couple, Lars from a small village in southern Sweden and Jen a native of Jackson Hole, started their dream to bring an unfamiliar sport to the place that they call home. Over the last few years they have engaged the local communities in their journey, in order to bring Driven Shooting to the American West.

 

“On a days shooting we have over 40 people on staff.” says Lars. “For us to be able to produce our shooting experience, we need so many people and local businesses in order to make everything work. From college students at BYU Idaho, local farmers, grocery stores, agricultural suppliers, the Team at Driggs airport, neighbors and friends; without all these resources in our valley we would not be able to make this dream of ours come true”.

 

As Blixt & Company continues to grow, the focus is always new, innovative solutions and ideas to enrich the customer experience, particularly in areas and concepts such as farm to table. Working with the local farmers, artists and the rich agricultural heritage of Teton Valley will always be in the backbone of the company. Artists, musicians, wine makers, artisan food producers are all a part of the land, infusing it with soul, heritage, character and imagination. Blixt & Company also see many benefits to cyclical thinking for all aspect of the of the estates, and will always make sure to thrive for a sustainable idea, products and most of all a great shooting experience.

FOUNDER

Considering his ancestry, Lars’ affinity for shooting comes as little surprise. His father is still an avid sportsman in the famed Scandanavian hunting grounds where Lars was born and raised. And his great-grandfather— Bengt Blixt — was a hunter and fisher of no small repute in the same region. His great-grandfather’s name (Blixt means “lightning” in Swedish) was chosen for this latest shooting venture in homage to a family long steeped in the sport.
