Special 2018 Family Friendly Hunt Packages


Remember: Hunting is supposed to be fun! We’re doing our part by offering free guided hunts for non-resident kids 15 years old and under during North Dakota’s Youth Waterfowl weekend.  While we normally don’t offer guided hunts, we're making an exception here for the kids to make sure they get on birds.

Space is very limited! We’ve got just four slots available for this exclusive weekend hunt, and two slots have already been claimed. Adults cannot hunt but will enjoy all other ranch amenities free of charge.

We guarantee to put our Prairie Smoke Ranch youth hunters on birds or your money back!

On-site lodging, decoys and blinds furnished – bring your young hunter (must have completed a firearms safety program), your dog and some food to share. You will return home with ducks for the grill, a happy dog and stories for a lifetime. This is going to be a fun, informative weekend.  

Practice makes perfect

Jeanie sez "let's get some young ladies involved."

And yes, we are having duck for dinner!

Prairie Smoke Ranch is donating the proceeds from one hunt (for up to 8 hunters) to Tracy’s Sanctuary House (https://www.tracyssanctuary.com/about) in Bismarck.

Tracy’s Sanctuary House provides housing and support for rural North Dakota families while their loved ones are receiving treatment for life-threatening injuries and illnesses at Bismarck hospitals. This is a great organization which will put your hunting dollars to good use in our local community.

How do you participate? Easy, just select this slot, show up and go hunting! 

We anticipate your step will be a bit lighter, the sunshine a bit brighter and your aim a bit truer, knowing you are supporting both the ducks and the North Dakota families who help produce them throughout the year.

Your lease amount will be paid directly to Tracy’s Sanctuary, which is 501(c)3 qualified – consult your tax advisor for deductibility.

STATUS:  Booked



We are all about family here on the prairie. The proof is in our special family-friendly split-slot hunt.

Claim the whole ranch for your group or share camp with another hunting group and split the lease fee in half ($2,600). We can accommodate two to four hunters in each group. You will still enjoy your own private bunkhouse and kitchen facilities and will hunt the entire ranch on your own terms during your stay here. This is a great chance to become part of the Prairie Smoke Ranch tradition and meet some other waterfowlers in the process.  Youth discounts still apply. Contact us for details.
