Prairie Smoke Ranch
Find Your Duck Camp Here! 
Ice-up northern mallards

Over the last 18 years the cornerstones  of our success at Prairie Smoke Ranch have stayed the same – safe, clean, comfortable accommodations, exclusive on-site access to our acreage, and furthering the traditions of hunting, dog work and the pursuit of game with respect and admiration. Our birds are all wild, as is the landscape and our waterways where the birds were hatched and fledged. This is hunting – the way you remember it.

We are located in the hills of the Missouri (River) Coteau, in North Dakota Prairie Pothole country--simply the last best place for duck hunting in the Northern Plains. You will NOT harvest a greater variety of waterfowl anywhere in North America than right here at Prairie Smoke Ranch.  As many as 13 different species have arrived in the cleaning shed after a single morning's hunt.

Come join us, bring friends and a dog or two and make some memories.

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.
