Spring Turkey
We hunt the spring gobblers on over 80,000 acres of private leases as sell as large national forest permit areas in the Black Hills of Northeast Wyoming and Western South Dakota.

Our season runs April 20 through May 31. Hunts are three days for single-bird hunts and four days for two-bird hunts. Call for specific dates.

We assist with obtaining the licenses in Wyoming and South Dakota. Licenses will be at the Lodge when you arrive in the Spring.

Over the past 30 years our hunters have had excellent success on long-bearded birds.

Our big leases hold excellent numbers of Merriams. Combined with little hunting pressure, this makes for excellent calling opportunities on mature gobblers.

The 2022 Season went great! We took 88 hunters who harvested 84 Merriam Toms. 44 of these hunters chose to do the second bird hunt in South Dakota. 19 of these harvested a second gobbler.

Our 2021 season went well. Because of the virus and 2020 season rollover, we took in the most hunters we’ve ever had. 95 hunters harvested 88 birds in Wyoming. Hunters who chose to hunt the second bird in South Dakota were around 50% harvest. Throughout the season, we saw large numbers of jakes and are looking forward to the 2022 Spring season!

The 2020 season was a bit challenging. Due to the virus restrictions, we cancelled the April hunts and all April hunters were given the opportunity to move into 2021 or come in May. We were able to hunt 46 hunters in May. These hunters harvested 42 mature Merriam toms. 35 of these hunters were on the two-bird combo, and 28 of them were able to harvest the second bird.

The 2019 season had good success considering cold snowy conditions throughout most of the season. 88 hunters harvested 78 mature toms. 57 of the hunters chose to hunt the second bird; they harvested 41 toms. There were A LOT of missed birds this year, over 50. Although we had poor weather in May, it got better at the end of the month and we ended up with a tremendous hatch.

2018 spring turkey season was awesome! We had 82 turkey hunters and harvested 78 birds. 55 of these hunters chose the two-bird hunt. 48 of them harvested their second Merriam tom. Again, this year we had over 50 misses. We are seeing a lot of jakes and had another good hatch. We are looking forward to 2019.
