Hay Creek Kennel offers the following guided hunt opportunities:
Wisconsin Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock
Our guiding service covers the majority of Wisconsin, however most of our hunts are focused on the following counties: Chippewa, Taylor, Rusk and Clark. Whether we are running your dogs, or ours, this is a great hunt if you are looking to experience wild birds in the woods of Wisconsin!
Wisconsin guided hunts are offered from mid-September through the end of the bird season weather permitting. A hunt consists of a maximum of two guns per guide. We are firm believers in strong family ties; therefore youth (age 16 and younger) hunt at no charge. Whether you are hunting for one day or planning a longer trip we can accommodate you! If you are interested in an all-inclusive guiding and lodging package please contact Sonny. Arrangements can be made for pick up from your place of lodging or meeting at the kennel.
WI Guided Hunt Prices:
$200.00 per man per day
(Price includes lunch and a full day of hunting. Kennels are available if needed.)
Wisconsin Woods Handler’s Clinic
If you are looking for some assistance with handling your dog in the grouse woods of Wisconsin, Hay Creek Kennel offers a handler’s clinic option just for you. Handling your dog in a real life setting can bring new challenges, so we can spend some time with you and your dog making for a smooth transition. Contact us for more information, dates available, and prices.
South Texas Winter Camp
In January we head down to the Mariposa Ranch located in south Texas. We take a load of Wisconsin dogs with us in order to offer you a winter training camp. This camp is a great opportunity for young puppies needing puppy development or dogs that have foundations. With access to 45,000 acres and wild quail, this trip keeps your dog in prime working form during the slow winter months. Dogs that are at a more advanced level of training may have the opportunity to run on a professional guide string. On average, this trip is approximately 6 weeks beginning in January. Contact Sonny if you would like more information on this great training trip.
South Dakota Handler’s Clinic
Hay Creek Kennel hosts a handler’s clinic for those owners who have had their dog(s) worked through our training program either here at the kennel or personally, but are looking for more assistance on how to work with their dogs in a real hunting setting. More in depth than a training seminar, this handler’s clinic is group of individuals lead by Hay Creek Kennel, running their personal dogs on the prairies of South Dakota. Not only will you be able to enjoy a unique hunting trip, but you will have guidance with any handling issues that arise while running your dog(s).
