Hunting Leases at Prairie Smoke Ranch

After nearly 20 years of outfitting we now offer our ranch property and facilities on a simple "access lease" for Do-It-Yourself hunters. In addition to a number of preset blinds and decoy spreads, you will receive exclusive access to our contiguous acreage, blinds, and 20+ proven sloughs and lakes. No pressure, no competition, no sky-busting -- hunt when, where and how you wish. We own all our lakes/sloughs and control access -- leave the drama behind.

Leases include on-site lodging and support with complete kitchens, private shower, heated mud-room, cleaning shed, freezers, and exclusive access to our 20+ lakes, sloughs, food plots and acreage during your time period. There are no extra charges of any kind. 

We provide maps and an orientation but hunts will be self-guided and you will still bring your own grub and gear, your own dogs and a few decoys. Leases will begin on the afternoon of the first day and end on the morning of the last day. Our existing clients have first choice of dates, the remainder will then be made available to new clients.  A deposit of 1/2 the lease rate is required to reserve your dates. No refunds after July 1.

Our hunting lease program for 2022 is suspended pending new ownership. We'd like to thank the many hundreds of hunters and families who have shared the autumn prairie with us the last two decades through droughts, floods and blizzards.  It's been quite the adventure.


What we provide:

On-site lodging and exclusive access to 20+ lakes, sloughs, and uplands (870 acres) during the lease period.

Two bunkhouses with 8 beds total, full kitchens and refrigerators in each. Gas BBQ grill is included.

Guest bathroom/shower and heated mudroom.

Cleaning shed, power plucker, bird breaster and freezers for birds.

Use of our best pre-placed blinds.

Outdoor fire pit with wood.

Property maps. (Please bring your own PLOTS book and plat maps.)

What you provide:

Hunters supply their own trained hunting dogs, decoys and additional blinds (as needed).

All guests supply their own sleeping bag/bedroll and pillow (all bunks have mattresses and covers).

Boats are generally not needed but feel free to bring one up if you wish.

As in the past hunters supply their own food and hunting gear.

Hunters will do their own scouting off property.

We recommend 4WD trucks and ATVs for maximum access to the property and surrounding area.
