Pheasant Hunting

 Hunt pheasants here the way you are suppose to. We keep birds out for you to hunt - and lots of them!  Last year we released  over 30,000 pheasants on our 1000 acres of prime pheasant habitat.   Located in central Minnesota, this large connecting piece of land offers  a variety of different covers: CRP - type grass fields, corn/sorghum  food plots, evergreen tree lanes, brushy oak lanes, cattail sloughs, you  name it - we have a little of everything.  With this much area and this  much cover, we can keep pheasants in the field and hunt pheasants  similar to those on long, out-of-state trips.  


 Guided hunts are our specialty here at  Rice Creek. We have many top-notch dogs and guides to handle groups of 1  to 140 hunters. Our guided hunts are guaranteed. When you book your  hunt, we will make sure you get to shoot at, stalk, flush (in other  words hunt) as many birds as you requested.  Hitting the birds, of  course, is up to you, so even if your hunting group has a little trouble  with their shooting abilities, they still will say they had ample  opportunities and get cleaned pheasants to take home - we guarantee it. 


 Hunting on your own without  a guide is  very popular, also. Make sure you bring a good dog, or rent one of our  dogs, as the land is large and you will be paying for the birds that we  replenish. There may be extras in the field, but you will still need all  your hunting skills to get your limit.  You also will get to take your  limit of cleaned birds home whether you were able to bag them or not -  we guarantee it.

Duck hunting

 Hard-flying mallards swinging over the  oaks, dipping down to take a look at the slough, an then the guns open  up. Get ready, as they will soon come again! This is Rice Creek duck  sloughs. 


 Thousands of mallards are harvested annually; big,  beautiful ducks, that fly fast - very fast! A perfect spot to take the  novice shooter, as the ducks just keep coming. It is also a great way to  get those special guests the chance to get their share of shooting  until you think they have had enough. Your dog will love the hunt, as it  is a great spot to do both water and land retrieves.
