Pheasant hunting at our orvis endorsed lodge

If you reserve a snow goose/ pheasant combo hunt, depending on our scheduling, you’ll either head to the snow goose blind or upland hunt in the morning. Come back to the lodge for a gourmet lunch, and head back out to the fields for your afternoon hunt. Our guided pheasant hunts are the best you will find. Even though all of our fields have both pheasants and quail, some areas hold mostly pheasants. Hunting pheasants behind our pointing dogs can be an exciting experience! We hunt along fence rows, food plots, and native prairie grasses. We manage our pheasant hunting fields to create a one-of-a-kind pheasant hunting experience! The scenery on each hunt will take you back in time to a simpler way of life.

When you return from your evening hunt, enjoy a hearty supper. After dinner you can relax next to the fireplace and enjoy the comradery of other solo hunters from across the country. Our meals are prepared fresh daily from our chefs. Guests from across the world rave about our gourmet meals served at the lodge!

  1. I am crippled by stroke, but can walk with cane. I still deer hunt from my blinds, use SUV to get around on farm.
    Thinking about a snow goose hunt for 2 days , a stop on way to Tennessee. Would be my girlfriend and I, we are both in our late 70s . I use to live on a lake in Iowa and hunted ducks and geese a lot. Can’t do it anymore, this would probably my last hunt so looking for a good one.
    Girlfriend would not hunt.

  2. I am interested in a two day goose hunt. There would be four hunters. What are your open dates and where is the closest private airport to the hunting area. Could you please email more details.

    Thanks – Randy
