"Had the opportunity to spend four nights and hunt four days at Flatland. We hit it perfect with weather and migration and had limits everyday with great scouting, set ups and calling. It was a great hunt and Alex and his staff are World Class. But what made it perfect was the entire lodge experience.

I have had the good fortune of hunting in some great places with five star outfitters in Argentina, Central America and Canada. I have also been to many of the Orvis endorsed facilities. The Flatland Flyways crew ranks right there with the best of all of these. The attention to detail and individualized service was truly first class. At the end of the stay the measurement was that we all felt like we were family.
Great Hunting; Great Food; Great Accommodations & Great Service. But even better people!!! We are already booked for next year."

"I want to thank everyone at Flatland Flyways for hosting us this week. Start to finish it was a fantastic experience and I am very thankful that we made the trip. It is truly refreshing to meet folks who share the same passion for waterfowl and at such a high level. I am excited to work with Flatland Flyways in the future and am thrilled to know all of you. Thank you!"

"Awesome group of people that work at Flatland Flyways. They take care of everyone and treat everyone like family. The food and new lodge is amazing, and the hunting is just incredible."

"Just heading home from a 3 day hunt with Flatland Flyways. These guys worked very hard to put us on birds and we put down 262. Even being the last weekend of the year for them and being worn down they put well over a couple thousand miles between 3 scouts morning and night to make sure they had us in the right field for each day. They could have easily just left the spread and had us hunt the same field but they moved us to another field for day two and we had another 100+ bird day. I have nothing but good things to say about each and every one of the guys on the crew! Thanks to Alex and the guys for a great weekend, we'll see you next year!"

"Spoiled for any other bird hunt. Kindest, warmest hosts and guides...AMAZING hunt. Facilities are 5 Star. Food is gourmet and served with personality and warmth. Best duck I have ever eaten!

"Flatland Flyways,

I wanted to extend a huge thank you to everyone for having us there this week to see everything that makes FF so exceptional. Exceptional doesn’t even begin to describe the operation you have going on over there. From the lodge being absolutely gorgeous and welcoming to the family making us feel like we were at home and taken care of. After meeting everyone it is apparent that the values and mission of FF align with those at Avery Outdoors and believe it or not that can be difficult to find. I would send any writer to you and would have complete faith in them having more than just a good hunt but a wonderful story from family, military service, and hunting."

"Dear Flatland Flyways Family,

Thank You for the wonderful weekend of Spring Snow Goose Hunting. You are all very nice, professional, and respectful. I feel that I am now a part of your Family. The lodge is beautiful and a great place to stay. You are building a wonderful destination. I hope to see you again in Fall 2015. I wish you all the very best."

Our family was in need of a getaway that was not too far but not too close to home. I am not a hunter, but I needed to unplug from the busy world and that is exactly what Flatland Flyways provided. We stayed in their gorgeous lodge that had all the amenities, but also scenery that took my breath away. The ladies sure know how to cook, the food resembled the quality of a five star restaurant. Our little one loved running around outside with his toys and playing with the dogs. My husband got to go hunting in the morning while my son and I slept in and relaxed. The staff at Flatland were kind, welcoming and made it a goal to make sure every possible need was met. I even got a massage! I cannot wait to go back next year!

I just want to thank everyone at Flatland Flyways for an amazing weekend! I brought my wife and 16 month old son up for a goose hunt and we had a blast. I have hunted waterfowl lodges all over North America and nothing has compared to the experience with you guys. I've been wanting to bring my family along on a hunt for a long time now and when I first visited you guys for spring snow geese, I kn...ew I'd found my place! When we arrived my wife found that they had picked a bouquet of wild flowers for her and placed it in our room. They even made special kids meals for our son!

The hunting is always top notch with these guys. I've hunted from Canada to Arkansas and everywhere in between - but these guys do it right from scouting, to decoys, to calling. An absolute first class operation all around!

Thanks so much; see you next time!

We had a great time with you and your guys! You all went above and beyond to make sure we were on the birds this Spring and we really appreciate that! You made us feel like we were a part of your crew and that goes a long ways to making it a successful trip. If we do get drawn for a non-resident license for this fall, we will definitely be booking a fall snow hunt! Thanks again for you and your crews hard work this weekend!"

"Just got back to Iowa from a great hunt with Flatland Flyways. It was such a fun weekend and I was definitely wanting to... go back home. We shot 41 geese with one band in two hunts and it was just a great time. The guys all like to have fun and get to know ya real well. These guys worked hard to put us on birds and I would go back there in an instant. I won't forget that the cooking is AMAZING. Thanks Alex and the rest of you guys for a great time and good luck with the rest of the season!"

"Flatland Flyways is truly a top-notch guide service. They make you feel right at home and will cater to anything you need. The lodge is fantastic along with the food and accomodations. All the guides work hard spending lots of hours scouting and setting. Highly recommended."

- Jace Klein

"Terrific experience!! The lodge, hosting, food are awesome. The guides are professional and all are great hosts. We enjoyed everything about the trip. We were pampered so much it didn't feel like a hunting trip, it was a vacation with some great hunting. It is truly a best in classs experience. The hardest part will be the return to "normal" hunting trips."

-Eric Weaver


"My two girls and myself came along with my husband and son. We wanted to meet everyone here and relax. The lodge is above and beyond what I ever expected. So beautiful! The meals can't be beat. A talent there. The best part is the Russo family and the guides. Very welcoming!!! They all will do anything for their guests. We had a very wonderful weekend."

- Christine Weaver

"I cannot think of too many times or places where I felt more welcome than I did this weekend at your lodge. From start to finish, the hunting and accommodations were second to none. I hope the opportunities to come see you all becomes more frequent than once a year! Thanks for everything!"

-Brannon Hilton, Iowa


"I've hunted Spring Snows with FF the past two years. I didn't realize how much work goes into making a hunt successful. The guides worked very hard to make the hunt the best it could be. We have been blessed and our hunts will be hunts that are remembered forever. The lodge and hospitality was 5 star. Perfect!"
