About Royal Flush Hunting Lodge

The staff at Royal Flush has one thing in mind – to make sure that the hunters have the most memorable experience possible. We take a lot of pride in the possibility to make that come true and to create long lasting friendships. The hunting is amazing, the food is outstanding, and the fun is unforgettable. From all of us here at Royal Flush, we want to thank you for checking us out and we hope to hear from you soon!

Charlie Tveit – Owner

I was born and raised in the Dakota’s, earning vast knowledge of the land and the wildlife. Being raised on hunting, I have been doing it ever since I was old enough to hold a gun.  The passion of watching the dogs work and the excitement of flushing up pheasants keeps me going every day.  I have ran dogs in hunting tournaments and have taken several state championships including Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and Iowa.

For the last 6 years, I have been guiding pheasant hunters as a hobby and have finally been fortunate enough to run a hunting lodge. The determination to make sure that clients have the best possible hunt and the desire that they will hopefully make it a tradition to come back year after year is what gives me the drive.

With amazing hunting land and top-notch hospitality, I am positive that this is an experience you will never forget.  The guides (Chad and Curtis), the amazing cook (Theresa), and our other staff are what make the Royal Flush Hunting Lodge unforgettable for the hunters. So come on over and lets hunt ‘em up!

Chad Jordhal – Guide

I was born and raised in Western MN and grew up hunting and fishing the Lac Qui Parle area. I am truly passionate about pheasant hunting and competing with my Pointing Labs in the Bird Dog Circuit Tournaments, not to mention elk hunting in Colorado, wild turkey hunting, walleye fishing, whitetail & mule deer hunting. By day, I am a Substation Foreman/Lineman with a major power company. The rest of my free time is spent outside with my dogs on my farm getting up the birds or guiding hunts in Minnesota and South Dakota.

My yellow lab Dixie won the 2013-2014 NATHA Puppy of the Year and then the 2014-2015 NATHA Top Dog of the Year awards in Flushing. I also have Dixie’s sister, Harley, and they are both competing in the National Bird Dog Circuit for Region 1. My phenomenal dogs were professionally trained at West County Kennels in Glencoe, MN and have hunted in MN, SD, WI, IA, NE, and KS. We are excited to hunt with you and have an unforgettable South Dakota pheasant hunting experience.

Curtis Kline – Guide

Hello, my name is Curtis Kline.  I am one of the hunting guides at Royal Flush.  I was fortunate to grow up in a family that loves the outdoors.  I was tagging along on many hunts years before I held my first shotgun.  Hunting has provided countless positive life experiences for me.  I truly enjoy helping others gain these positive experiences for themselves through hunting.

Don’t think you need a group of 20 pheasant hunters to enjoy a successful hunt.  I specialize in small group hunts.  I like the one on one contact with each hunter that a small group provides.  Smaller groups also allow me to cater to exactly the style of hunt that you are hoping for.  I along with my black lab Otto and my yellow lab Whally will do everything in our power to help you enjoy a successful hunt.

Don’t be intimidated into thinking you have to be an experienced pheasant hunter or hunter in general to enjoy a hunt with Royal Flush.  I have a background in firearms instruction and safety as well as adult learning concepts.  I am willing to work with first time or novice hunters to give them a chance to get out in the field and enjoy a great hunting experience.

If you have any questions please contact me through the Royal Flush email and I will get right back to you.  I look forward to our hunt together.

Theresa Griese – Amazing Cook

I was born and raised on a farm in Bowdle, South Dakota. I have been married to my husband Don, for 40 years and we have 4 children and 11 grandchildren. We live on a farm a few miles west of Aberdeen.

I have 30 plus years of experience in the food industry. Up until I retired in December of 2015, I was managing the cafeteria at 3M in Aberdeen. I enjoy cooking for my family and friends. I really enjoy meeting and getting a chance to visit with people.
