Since 1981

A lot of outfitters have come and gone since we started 40 years ago.  You don't make it this long without doing a few things right.  


Frank, Cal and Ray Stukel (all brothers) started the business on family land back in 1981.   Ray was a farmer/rancher who took care of the food plots and could fix anything. Cal was a restaurant owner who provided the best food in the business. Frank was (and still is) the businessman who goes in a million different directions to make it all come together.  

The Sale Barn and Henrecy Herefords

The primary property we hunt was originally owned by Frank's in-laws, Arnold and Grace Henrecy, purveyors of Henrecy's Herefords.  Their very successful livestock operation included a sale barn that packed with people during annual bull sales.

That same barn is a cornerstone of our operation today.  It sure has come a long way in terms of amenities over 40 years!

In the early days the guides cleaned birds and sometimes helped with the shooting!
