Pipe Creek Guide Service is located in the heart of Kansas. We offer some of the best upland bird, whitetail deer and turkey hunting in Kansas.
We have archery, black powder and rifle hunts for Whitetail Deer. Our country has a lot of cropland, with woodlots and wooded creek bottoms mixed in. We have a good deer population, with some very nice bucks. In the 2001/02 season just ended our deer hunters had 100% opportunity on 140+ plus bucks, with a number of really nice bucks taken. Our Spring 2001 turkey hunters also did very well.
Archery season takes place during the pre-rut and goes through the rut and post-rut. Rifle season generally starts at the tail end of the rut/post rut. All bowhunting is done from tree stands overlooking trails leading to and from bedding/feeding areas. During rifle season you will generally hunt mornings and evenings from tree stands or good ground blinds.
We also have excellent pheasant and quail hunting. North Central Kansas generally has great habitat for upland birds, and our properties are no exception.
We have a brand new, fully furnished lodge that we built in 2001, with all the comforts of home, washer/dryer, satellite tv, etc. Meals are the responsibility of the hunter, and we make available to you the kitchen/cooking facilities in our lodge at no extra charge.
We have two commercial airports less than 3 hours away in Kansas City and Wichita, with airport pick-up readily available.
