Hunting Preserve


Recommended Posts

I think I am going to start looking for a hunting preserve to join around the cities area so I can pheasant hunt during this time of the year and use it to train during the spring adn summer......does anyone have recommendations on places to look at?

I have not used many preserves in the last 5-6 years or so. I did get to one this fall and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.... Royal Flush hunt club by Pine City. It had very nice grounds, a great lodge with fantastic food and is still within a reasonable drive from the Twin Sillies...

Good Luck!

I live in Roseville, I could pretty much go any direction. I would be game for either public or private depending on the cost.... I would like to keep it around a grand...I noticed some private ones cost a pretty penny to join, especially if there is a onetime fee. What are the benefits of joining a private one? Do you get better bird deals? use of the land to train during the summer? It seems as if a person could go to public one quite a few times before the total costs would be more that if you joined as a member.

I was looking at Wings North in Pine City and since it looked like you could pay $10 for the day, plus the birds.....Plus the $400 membership + birds seemed reasonible compared to someothers that I saw, If I wanted to go the membership route.....

Thanks for the info. I was out to one this weekend by Milwaukee WI, and got the itch to be able to hunting longer. The one out there was around $800 with 25 pheasants included in the membership and you could use the grounds in summer for training.

I belong to Game Unlimited in Hudson. Nice people.

Years ago, it was $527 first year and then $386 after that.

Anything close to the Cities it seems they require membership, but around ST Cloud, it is free and the birds are cheaper. If you want a little drive, it maybe worth it.

Like labs said, Royal Flush, very nice people and they have recently changed the memberships fee's. If you want to have fun, go hunting with John, it will be an experience your won't soon forget. He has some of the finest British labs around. Take a look at the Thulien hunt on their web site. John and 3 others joined us on this hunt. It was the best hunting preserve shoot that I have ever had. I was a member of Traxlers for over 10 years, they are another great facility. They treated us very well and treated the youngsters even better. The only reason that I didn't keep the membership going is my son turned 12 and now most of the fall is spent at the deer camp now that it runs 3 wks and hockey. Also, my lab turned 12 and she is done hunting, so it's not as fun going until I replace her. I don't have the heart to bring another dog into the family until she goes to the happy hunting ground in the sky.

I have been to both royal flush and wings north this year. Royal flush is a private only facility, but it is top notch. However, I have a Brit pup who is going to be 10 months old and all they wanted to know was who I bread with and if I wanted to stud my pup. When I told them my plans and agreement with the breeder they became a bit standoff ish with me. I will say the land they have to hunt as well as the facility is as good as it gets. On the other hand! I hunted wings north last week and thought it was great. We picked up 4 scratch birds in a very small area as well as our birds we put out. You get no dense cover at wings north (what I like) but they seem to be great people with a nice set up. You make the choice just my .02.

I think that shooting preserves are a great place to continue or extend your hunting season. I did not realize how much these types of set-ups can do for a person and their favorite canine. I was first introduced to them back in 1987. When I bought a new pup in 96, I knew that this type of place was needed to devolop my new pal.

I then moved from WI to MN and I found a place close to my new home called the American Heritage Hunting Club Between Eagle Bend and Parkers Prairie, MN. Great place with nice people that are very willing to work with a person with dog issues and training. It is a little drive from the Cities but has facitlities for a person to stay and for you work your dog and then maybe go to one of the lakes around to catch some fish and then go back and work your dog. I would give them a shout. I think you will like what they have to offer. By the way I have been to Wings north and that is a fine facility also, as is the others that were mentioned in the other responses that you have reecieved.

One other thing is that they do have birds year round so a summer fishing/hunting trip up there is worth it!

Their number is 218-738-5143

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
