Prairie Smoke Ranch
A Classic Duck Camp Experience 
Hunting – pure and simple. Welcome to Prairie Smoke Ranch, now in our 16th year of offering affordable, high-quality, 100% wild hunting experiences in the prairie pothole country of North Dakota.

Forget “running and gunning.” Our hunting is done right here on the ranch. Perfect for beginning hunters and family groups. We offer our hunters safe, easy and exclusive access to over 20 lakes and sloughs and over 500 acres of native uplands. We don't fight for spots or get up at 2:00 a.m. and drive till dawn to hunt – we check the wind, choose a blind and head out a few minutes before shooting time. Blinds and decoys are provided.  

"Classic big water diver hunts, pothole puddlers and jump shooting – we’ve got a bit of everything."

Our 870 rolling acres contain lakes and wetlands ranging in size from 1 to 60 acres. Prairie Smoke Ranch is a family-owned working ranch managed for waterfowl and upland game production. At last count we attracted 17 species of ducks, snow, Canada and whitefront geese, tundra swans, sandhill cranes, doves, ring-necked pheasants, sharptail grouse, Hungarian partridge and white-tailed deer (plus the occasional mule deer, moose and elk). Dozens of non-game species also call the ranch home.

Our self-guided hunting lease package features on-site support and includes everything you need to bring in the birds -- no surprises, no hidden charges. Our goal is to provide hunters a safe, quality hunt and a quality experience at a reasonable price. Nearly all blinds are accessible by ATVs; some accessible by vehicles.
