Since 1965. We seek to have fewer hunters, more land per hunter with improved habitat quality. Each piece of land has been surveyed by one of the two Association partners, Jon Nee or John Wenzel, in most cases more than once.
We provide the private land access, recommendations where to hunt and a local lodging listing. The hunter supplies his own skill and equipment.
How it works is that if we allocate a membership that hunter gains access to an online map library of all lease land. All land is identified by number. Hunters would then receive recommendations of where to hunt for what he is after. That hunter would then scout or hunt those spots and encouraged to scout further. Most hunters after their third season have covered sufficient ground and found more spots they like better they are not likely to be hunting their first year farms. That is when the golden nugget spots become more visible and eyes-on success rate increase.
Each hunter may plan to return to hunt the same land from year to year. He may also enjoy the added adventure of exploring new spots.
One flat rate without hidden costs.

Since posting a couple new lease acquisitions on the Update page we've had several calls from upland bird hunters concerned our main focus for new land is primarily deer. At this time deer hunting is the highest demand for hunting in the Association. Deer leases are the most competitive and require more work to acquire and retain. As a result, we try to secure them as far in advance of the season as possible.
Upland bird hunting is the second highest demand in the Association. A big percentage of our upland landowners are large landowners and we have close relations with them. We are always looking for potential new upland bird land and do our best to maintain existing leases. With the upland population at a low cycle we need to wait for increased bird numbers that are slowly coming back, but faster than new bird hunters.
September and early October are typically the best months for us to conduct a hands on evaluation of the quail and pheasant population. We usually do this while visiting landowners in various regions and working the land.
Last week we secured 3 existing leases with a total of over 25,000 acres in Kansas and Missouri.
Much of that land is in Kiowa County, Kansas with a lot of CRP grass. SW Kansas is coming back especially after its above average rainfall in June not like last year and the year before of dry months. A reliable Kiowa landowner said he is seeing some young birds and the pheasant numbers are better than last year.
Earlier we posted this photo as a potential new Iowa farm. The farm has filter strips planted to native grass with tree rows and other habitat desirable for upland bird hunting. We're making another trip this week to scout land in SW Iowa. It’s very possible this farm will be an addition to the club in the near future.
Lodging listing is updated yearly. We found around 10% of the listing change yearly to include dog friendly status. The updated date is at the top right. Hunters using out-of-date listings are finding increased frustration. Motel operators call to express annoyance with some who expect more than what is provided. Hunters who then show an out of date listing to motel operators make us all look foolish.
Telephone reservation of a spot from faulty memory rather than looking at a map has resulted in two showing up at the same time.
While out during the season we found hunters at their right spot on the wrong day. The fault was not keeping a calendar of their reservations.
