Located in central Kansas, our outfitter here manages over 15,000 acres of prime habitat for Whitetail deer and Rio Grande turkeys. Due to superior genetics, sound game management and ideal habitat, the bucks here grow to very healthy proportions and it is not uncommon to have seasonal averages exceeding 145”. Recent years have produced numerous bucks over 170 gross Boone & Crockett points, so the opportunity for a truly giant, fair-chase whitetail definitely exists.
Modern ranch house accommodations and home cooked meals are all part of these full-service packages. The hunting area is loaded with Rio Grande turkeys and the spring gobbler hunts are nothing short of phenomenal. This outfitter gets a lot of repeat bookings, so making reservations well in advance is highly recommended
Fly into Wichita, KS and rent a car, or drive to the lodge at Great Bend, KS.

Rifle and muzzleloader hunts regularly have success rates of close to 100%, with archery hunts running a very respectable 60-65% rate of success. Archery hunts take place from ladder stands and lock-ons that have climbing sticks, with ground blinds also being utilized. Most of the rifle hunts take place from fully enclosed and very comfortable tower blinds, with muzzleloaders being most effective by spot & stalk hunting in the sorghum and soybean fields.
