Upland Hunts

"When you have shot one bird flying you have shot all birds flying. They are all different and they fly in different ways but the sensation is the same and the last one is as good as the first." —Ernest Hemingway, Winner Take Nothing

SAMPLE TRIP ITENERARY:

Day 1: After arriving or being shuttled to our lodge mid-afternoon, meet our friendly staff and get settled into your room. After you kick your feet up for a few minutes, grab a golf cart and hone-in your shooting skills on our 20-station sporting clay course, trap, skeet or 5-stand. After you wear out your shoulder, return to our Rooster's Restaurant in the basement of our lodge to enjoy a cocktail, beer or a glass of our very own wine. After a few drinks, our chef will present the evening hors d'oeuvres followed by dinner and of course, dessert.

Day 2: Wake up to the smell of breakfast at 7 o'clock and be ready to eat at 8 o’clock. Your guide will then pick you up at the front entrance of the lodge at 9 o'clock. After a short drive and knocking down some upland game for 2-3 hours, return to the lodge and rest your legs before grabbing lunch at the noon hour. After lunch, return to the field with your guide around 1 o'clock. When the afternoon hunt comes to an end, hit-up the sporting clay course once again or do what most of our guests do – shower and get to drinking! Enjoy another fine evening of gourmet meals before relaxing by the campfire and retiring to your room for the night.

Day 3: Wake up before the crack of dawn to be shuttled to our 15-person, heated pit blind just yards off the Missouri River. Enjoy a much-needed hot breakfast after shooting the morning's first flight of teal, mallards, canadians or snows! Return to the lodge at the noon hour to have lunch before heading to the upland fields early afternoon. Share stories and reminisce your day while having a drink with staff and guides as you enjoy scenic views from the balcony of our lodge before your last night of fine dining.

Day 4: Roll out of bed dreading the fact that you have to leave. Enjoy one last breakfast before heading to the office to say goodbyes and receive your vacuum-sealed and frozen game you and your group harvested. While being shuttled to the airport, discuss when you'd like to book your hunt for next season!
