The Hunt: Whitetail Deer

Dakota Fish and Feathers has definitely established itself as a premiere whitetail hunting destination in the Northeast. The 2600 acres of mixed hardwood ridges, pine thickets and open field terrain combine to create the perfect habitat for the resident whitetail herd. The hydro-seeded clover that blankets the valley as well as the strategically located food plots provide the necessary nutrition to produce big bucks.

This coupled with year round nutritional supplementation results in extremely healthy deer with heavy body weight. Newly implemented antler restrictions will yield a large huntable population of trophy whitetails. Manager Sheldon Vance and his team of guides will bend over backwards to put you in the right place at the right time and will work hard to make your hunt successful!

Fishing for Trout:

Running through PMW are 3 tributaries of the Elk River, Coal bank and Hewlitt Fork and the Back Fork of the Elk River all of which contain native brook trout as well as stock trout.

Conveniently located on the property are two stocked ponds. The Highwall contains brook, brown, rainbow and golden trout. Our upper pond has been stocked with bass and hybrid bluegill which can reach 1.5 pounds.

The Flush: Waterfowl Hunting

Duck hunts are conducted in a 150 acre field that has been carefully planted with rows of cover using a blend of Sorghum, Millet, Corn, Sunflowers and Buckwheat. We offer several packages that include a guide and well trained bird dogs. Packages of 12, 25 and 50 birds are available. Bird hunters are able to customize their package by adding birds and other activities such as rounds of trap and skeet. Bird cleaning is available on site for an additional fee.
