2019 Hunting Leases at Prairie Smoke Ranch

After 17 years we have ceased waterfowl outfitting and are now offering our ranch property and facilities on a simple "access lease" for Do-It-Yourself hunters. We no longer provide guiding or outfitting with blinds, boats or decoys.

Lease Rate

Our rate is $150/day per person, minimum 4 hunters, maximum 8, plus $75 cleaning fee per group. We will no longer take mixed groups of multiple parties – if you lease the ranch you will have exclusive access to the entire acreage. If you lease the ranch with less than 4 hunters you will be charged the 4-hunter rate ($600/day or $2,400 for the slot). More than 4 hunters is at same $150/day rate; e.g. 5 hunters @ $3,000; 7 hunters @ $4,200).

Leases will again be for five day periods (3 full and 2 half days = 4 full days.) Leases will begin on the afternoon of the first day and end on the morning of the last day. Our existing clients will have first choice of dates, the remainder will then be made available to new clients (see below).  A deposit of 1/2 the lease rate is required to reserve your dates.
