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.  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 Hunting Lodge. 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. Join Otto,( Black Labrador), Lt. Dan, (German Wirehaired Pointer) and I this fall and we 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.

Jim Ganser – Guide

Hello, my name is Jim Ganser. I am fortunate to be one of the hunting guides at the Royal Flush.  I was born and raised in the Aberdeen area and left to attend college in Rapid City, SD.  I currently have 21 years in the law enforcement field and a background in Firearms. I am currently a firearms instructor for the State of South Dakota.  With that everyone safety is a prime concern and my priority. I own and have trained my three labs (Skyler, Aspen, Bear) and truly enjoy pheasant hunting all over South Dakota.

My passion for pheasant hunting comes from growing up in the Aberdeen area.  The birds’ incredible colors, speed, and ability to hide in short cover is amazing.  There isn’t a wall in my residence that doesn’t have some type a pheasant photograph on it, and I would love to help you start or add to your collection!    This will be my second season helping out Royal Flush it truly is a five-star hunting lodge.

Through my involvement with Royal Flush last year I was able to help guide people to a great pheasant hunts from all over the United States.  Having a chance to connect with the groups and really get to know them and enjoy our time together is why I wanted to come back.  If you have a large group or small group, we can accommodate them all.  There are different hunting food plots to accommodate the different sized groups.  Whether this is your first pheasant hunt or you’re an experience pheasant hunter my goal is to make sure you have an amazing time!
