About Our Hunts
When you hunt with Gobble n Grunt Outfitters, you can expect a family friendly, down home, country atmosphere. You will stay in one of three farmhouses in northern Nebraska. The farmhouses are modern and kept clean and comfortable. Washer and dryer are available so that you dont have to pack too many clothes. Unless otherwise specified, home cooked meals are included in all hunts. We can guarantee you wont loose any weight when you hunt with us. Deer and turkey hunts are guided on a 2 to 1 guide ratio.
When you wake up in the morning, you and your guide will literally decide where to hunt on a total of 70,000 private land acres on three rivers and several creeks. A ten minute drive with your guide in one of our 4x4s north and you are hunting the Missouri River, a ten minute drive south and you are at the Niobrara river. All of the properties are very scenic and are either owned by us, or exclusively leased by us and managed under quality deer management practices. The quality of our hunting properties ensures a high game density situation and high quality trophy animals. Except for our bison recreation hunts, all of our other hunts are fair chase hunts for wild game in wild and scenic farm and ranch country. There are no high fences. We are not a game farm. This is hunting as it was meant to be!
We expect you will either drive to camp (driving directions are provided at time of booking), or else you will fly to Sioux City, Iowa (recommended airport) where you will rent a car and drive 2 hours west to our camps.
So please continue on through the Gobble-n-Grunt and Prairie King site to discover one of the most undiscovered hunting mecca's left in the states. Then call us to arrange your hunt on the prairie.

Bucks will average between 130 and 150 depending on the year and our top end is 190. That's what makes this such a great hunt.

From this camp you will drive from zero to 45 minutes to your hunting area. Many private ranches are hunted out of this location.

World famous turkey hunts
More hunters have harvested their merriam turkey at Gobble n Grunt Outfitter's camps than any other turkey camp in the U.S.
Our success rate has been so good that we started guaranteeing our spring shotgun turkey hunts. We want you to know that this is no ordinary turkey hunt. Not only are you going to experience exceptional hospitality, plenty of elbow room on 70,000 acres, scenic properties, and excellent meals and accomodations, but you are also going to have plenty of opportunity to harvest your gobbler!
This guaranteed turkey hunt has caused quite a fuss. We've had hunters and outfitters call us to ask us why or how we can make such a guarantee. The fact is, we can make that guarantee because of our tremendous bird numbers. Time and time again our guests comment that they've never seen or heard so many turkeys and didn't know that such a turkey hunting mecca existed.
When Choosing a date to hunt keep a couple of things in mind. In April the birds have not completely split up so you will be hunting near large numbers of birds. Therefore the use of a blind, which we provide, will be necessary in many cases. The reason for this is that in April you have a lot of birds around you most of the time, which makes it nearly impossible to sit perfectly still long enough to let the birds that you don't want to shoot, pass by and your gobbler come into range. Remember, when you start calling during this time of year it is not uncommon to have groups of jakes of up to 20 or more come in on you while the gobbler struts and displays for just out of range. You need the flock to pass by without putting, in order to get your gobbler. Not all setups in April are this way, but a lot of them are. Additionally, the calling in April is light flock type calling. You are mostly calling to the flock and not an individual gobbler. In May, however, the flocks have completely split up and the hunting changes dramatically. This is a good time for an active hunter to hunt with us. Traditional locate calling, walking, and cut and run techniques become more common. Quite simply, if you are a patient hunter, patient caller, you'll love April and the fantastic gobbling and bird densities you'll experience. If you are not so patient and like to stretch your legs more, May will suit you better. Many folks like to come hunting with us at the same time every year, while others like to come in April one year and May the next, to experience a different type of hunting technique. Additionally, some hunters fall in love with a certain camp and rebook that camp every year, while others like to change camps every year.
Spring turkey dates: Archery: late March to mid May. Shotgun: Mid April to Mid May.
Whatever your turkey hunting experience, or preferences, we can help you decide when to come and which camp you'd be most suited to, so give us a call and we'll get you in the right place at the right time!
Reserve your spot at the roost.
