Hooray Ranch is the premier upland preserve pheasant hunting experience in Kansas. Pheasant hunts at Hooray represent a true commitment to excellence with an authentic passion for wingshooting. With extensive ongoing wildlife management efforts and dedication to first class operations, Hooray Ranch has developed a fantastic pheasant hunting program on over 20,000 acres.
A day of pheasant hunting at Hooray Ranch begins with breakfast served at the Refuge, a 15,000-square foot sportsman’s paradise. After breakfast, make the short drive 5-10 minute drive to the field for your morning pheasant hunt. Hunting is typical block-and-drive behind German Short-haired Pointers and Labs, with a maximum of 5 hunters on the ground at a time. Morning and afternoon hunts are 2.5 hours in duration with a return to the Refuge at mid-day for a seated lunch and some time to relax with a cigar by the fireplace. After hunting the fields in the afternoon, close out your day shooting some clays, enjoying a cocktail at Hooray’s beautiful outdoor bar, and returning to the Refuge for dinner. Guests can relive their Hooray Experience from the hunt telling stories around the fire pit at night.
Mallard Mansion: This is the center piece of the Hooray Ranch Campus. It is a 10,000 square foot, five bedroom home designed with acute attention to detail. It is the perfect blend of old world charm with all the modern conveniences. This is a culmination of years of hunting all over the world, capturing the best of the best from the international travels of Mr. Dunn. Massive stone fireplaces, a private gun vault, wine cellar, and a world class outdoor kitchen/entertainment area are just a few of the features that set this amazing lodge apart. Imagine relaxing in front of the fireplace after a successful day’s hunt, taking in a view of the lake.
Honker House: The Honker house is one of the original structures preserved to enhance the property. It is a fully self-contained single bedroom home that was completely remodeled. A private living space and a full kitchen make this space appealing.
Pintail Palace: Pintail consists of two private suites, each with its own bath, and a common area with a wet bar, offering a loft type atmosphere. This is a great space for a group of four. Whether a hunting party of four or a family, it will satisfy even the most well-traveled group. Pintail offers a great retreat to get away from it all, while still just a few steps from all the other amenities and activities Hooray has to offer.
The Refuge: The refuge serves as the main gathering place. Its large open floor plan offers a great space to entertain large parties. It offers ten dual occupancy suites, six with private baths. It also serves as our dining area. In addition it is home to our signature “Duck Blind” Bar, a bar unlike any we have ever seen. Seven large flat screen televisions located above a “Duck Blind” offer a relaxing spot to take in the game and a cold beverage. Or, if you prefer, relax in front of the huge fire place and enjoy the view of our roosting lake, holding as many as 30,000 waterfowl of every species each year.
