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!

David Meyer – Guide

David was raised in South Dakota and, in his youth, would spend as much time as possible in the outdoors, whether it be hunting, fishing or just hitting a few targets.  Currently living in Aberdeen with his wife of 15 years, together they enjoy summers in a boat fishing on the river or camping with friends.  One of the many reasons he love South Dakota, and particularly Aberdeen, are the people.  Although there aren’t many of us around the ones you find will make it worth it!

David refers to himself as semi-retired; however, every time he ends up with a new project!   David has been on the Aberdeen Rural Fire Department for twelve years and currently serve as a captain on the department.  He is also an active member of the Community Emergency Response Team and fly drone for law enforcement agencies during crisis situations if needed.
