Varmint (prairie dog hunting)
Prairie dog hunts will increase your marksmanship for future hunts whether it is big game hunts or predator hunts. Prime time to hunt these abundant rodents are from June 1 to late July. On this hunt you will have the opportunity at trying all of your guns you have stowed away in your gun safe. We have had hunters bring rifles as small as a .22 long rifle to large rifles like 300 win mag. On this hunt you will shoot around 250-300 rounds per day per person. If you have a semi-auto rifle you will probably shoot around 400-600 round per day. The only stipulations we have is NO FULL METAL JACKETS PERIOD!!!
Private fishing will be included on our varmint and predator hunts. We have 3 private reservoirs two that are 30 acres in size and one about an acre that sits by the lodge. These private fishing holes are stocked annually with Rainbow, brooke and Brown trout. They will vary in size of 1 pound to 13 pounds (catch and release only).
How your day will go (prairie dog hunts):
Eat breakfast and leave lodge and cabins around 7 to 8 am. Then we will drive 20 to 50 miles depending on the weather and set up usually between 8 and 9 am. We will shoot a prairie dog town until lunch time. We will break for lunch and it will be provided by us. After lunch we will shoot prairie dogs that are still in the first town. Once morning dog town has been properly shot we will move to the next dog town. Some days we will need to move 3 times to keep the shooting active, but most days it will only take 2 stops. Around 3pm, we will call it a day and head back to the lodge. From there you can clean rifles and do some fishing on our private fishing ponds.
Prairie Dog Hunting Packages

Predator Hunts (coyote hunting)
Predator hunts also known as coyote hunting is becoming a highly sought after hunt. These hunts are conducted in mid-November when the fur is prime and we will complete our hunts around May 1. This is a perfect hunt to do after your big game season closes in your state. We will take coyote hunters all year long however we like to hunt them in the winter months because calling will be more productive. On these hunts we will set up in areas that we hunt big game in the fall to help our mule deer and antelope populations. We have plenty of land to be able to have multiple stands per day. Depending on the weather we will drive 5 to 70 miles from the lodge. Wind plays a huge factor in southeastern Wyoming so it is important to have a wide range of country to conduct these hunts. For a good hunt we recommend two hunters per one guide.
