I hope you are enjoying the New Year. This weather has been incredible for upland hunting!  Our fall hunting season was very good and I am looking forward to the rest of the year.


Make sure to check out my "Pick Dates" to hunt this winter & spring. We have some big groups hunting with us, and the days following their hunt should be exciting with lots of birds!  


I hope to get the chance to hunt with you this winter or spring.

Terry's "Pick Dates"



I normally don't do this, but when I was looking over my hunt calendar I noticed a couple dates that, if I were coming on a hunt to Heartland Lodge, these would be the dates I would pick. Why, you may ask?  There are several large groups hunting and the days following their upland hunt the fields are going to be full of birds!
