Who are these guys?

Prairie Smoke Ranch is operated by veteran waterfowlers Dan & Jeanie Sobieck. Dan has chased ducks for 50 years and readily acknowledges that all ducks wish they were Canvasbacks.  He retired from a federal career, including executive positions with USDA and the Dept of Interior and 12 truly amazing years with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He now manages Prairie Smoke Ranch farm and hunting operations full-time. He is a Certified Firearms Safety Instructor and claims to be an expert on waterfowl I.D.  Feel free to test him at any time!  

Jeanie is an engineer by training, a graduate of the University of North Dakota, and claims she is a better shot than Dan.  Only their dogs know the truth...and they are not saying. 

Both Dan & Jeanie are Red Cross First Aid, CPR and AED certified.

If there's a better place to be than on the North Dakota prairie in October they haven't found it. They welcome all hunters, with special emphasis on kids, women and families.  Leave the drama home -- let's have some fun!
