Brock Dufrain went above and beyond while guiding our group. Everyone enjoyed his company even though he didn't put us on very many birds. Pretty sure his counter wasn't calibrated.

Honestly the birds and the way they launched was astonishing! I have hunted Pheasants here on the East Coast and they do not compare to your Pheasants in any way!

I cannot Thank everyone at Thunderstik Lodge enough for all they did, all the prep work, all the work during our trip. I will be coming back, I will tell all my friends that they need to go! Keep up the amazing work, I am one of your largest cheerleaders now!

“On behalf of myself, Anheiser-Busch and our wholesale family, we would like to thank you for a spectacular hunting excursion. As predicted, the lodge worked out perfect to conduct our meetings and entertain our guests. I would also like to thank your entire staff. Any successful lodge operation involves the team effort of many individuals. Often those people go without recognition or thanks. Thanks to their effciency and attention to detail, Anheiser-Busch was able to provide our guests with first-class hospitality. Professionalism at its best.”

“I have rarely experienced a professional group so dedicated to giving the hunter a memorable outdoor experience. I believe that I enjoyed most the fact that the lodge is located smack in the middle of the best hunting group I’ve ever seen. This, of course, means that a sleepyhead like myself didn’t have to bail out of a motel downtown and then ride 50 miles over rough roads to get to the pheasant fields or the duck and goose blinds.”

“Not only did we accomplish our goal of discussing strategies related to our business, but we also managed to build our team by sharing an incredible adventure. The accommodations were great, the view outstanding and the hunting was second to none.”

Carey  (David, I sent you a separate thank you by mail to your house, but please consider yourself a part of the focus of my gratitude!) 

Very belatedly I wanted to thank you for the wonderful time I had with you and your team at Thunderstik Lodge a few weeks ago.  Every single person I bumped into on your staff was incredibly friendly, professional, helpful and treated me like a long lost friend.  From the front desk, the people cooking, the guides, the nice ladies cleaning up the rooms and my buddies who drove me to and from the airport in Sioux Falls the consistency and quality of your team was superb.  I know this might come as a shock to you, but I had never been on a hunting trip before.  And don’t tell anyone, I was a bit nervous!  You and your team were outstanding teaching me how to handle a shotgun and pheasant hunt safely.  You really helped put me at ease and make me feel comfortable.  No one was more surprised a few birds flew directly in front of the pellets that came out of my shot gun than me.  And I hate to admit it, I still don’t know which I eye I am looking through when I shoot the gun….

I totally get the attraction to pheasant hunting now.  The walking through the fields, the brilliance of the well trained dogs, the birds suddenly appearing out of nowhere, the adrenaline rush, the comradery with the other hunters, lunch in the field, etc.  Your lodge is spectacular.  I haven’t stopped talking about.  And my new orange Thunderstiks hat looks pretty bad ass on me on the sidelines of my sons basketball games.

David, thanks again for hosting an incredible event.  It was unforgettable.  Really enjoyed all the new friends I made.  Appreciated the opportunity to do something out of my normal routine. 

Attached are some pictures.  Happy holidays.

I have never been on a guided hunt. The experience I had was by far one I will never forget. From the moment I arrived to the time I checked out I had a blast. I also never done a wing hunt and now I'm hooked. The staff,food and accommodations were top notch. I will definitely do this hunt again and reccomend it to anyone looking for an experience they will never forget. I give Thunderstik and all there staff 5 stars.

I visited Thunderstik in October with my 14 yr old son. It was his 1st real experience upland hunting and he couldn't have had a better time. Our guide (Ray) was exceptional and the staff at the lodge was second to none.

I just returned from ANOTHER great trip to the Stik. It was a great adventure and as usual, top shelf service. This place is wonderful. From the meals, accommodations to the professional guides, it's just a pleasure all around. Thanks to all the support staff and management for your attentiveness. See you again soon!

My stay at Thunderstik Lodge and the hunting experience was perfect. The organization was detailed, we always knew when we were leaving, guns were cleaned, food was served on time, overall personnel was all on the same page. I have not been to many other hunting lodges but this one is to me top of the line and I appreciate them all spoiling me for 72 hours. Guides, cooks, servers, bartenders, office staff, everybody did an excellent job at making me feel like the experience was all about me and yet there were many other hunters there. Don't know how everyone else there could not have felt the same way about their hunt. Job well done to all that had a part in this hunt and thank you for making this a trip of a lifetime for me and my son. God Bless and wishing you all the best in the future.

Just wanted to express my gratitude for the incredible experience that your team provided to us last week.  You should be very proud of the team at Thunderstick, they truly are first class.  Everything and I mean every thing we experienced was better than anyone expected.  You treat your customers like I wish every one of my hotels would treat theirs. 

Thank you for a fantastic hunt.
