We have visited Garett every year since he purchased the Lucky Lake operation and we were there before him. Hunting for geese and ducks is usually good to excellent and infrequently throw in a less than great shoot which may be fun for some of us due to watching thousands of high-flying migrators. Over our experience, the guides figured out how to often fool the abundant sandhill cranes, limit 5, into coming to field decoys. They infrequently hunt upland birds since it has become so spotty for shirptail grouse and Hungarian partridge although they offer such upon request generally toward October when most crops have been harvested. The big plus is the positive-fun atmosphere with the guides and lodge staff. Beautiful prairie countryside with variable numbers of large game to observe including moose. Food is good with on-your-own breakfast, large lunch meal, nap, and then smaller dinner. Most evenings are spent sharing stories and travel experiences with other hunters but old people often go to bed early.
Big risk has been sharing lodge in the evenings with other hunters who are mean-spirited, prejudged against anyone different, unknowledgeable of any science including gun safety research, and loudly negative.....typical American NRA members. Rooms are small, thin walls, and often will be shared.
