Kansas Waterfowl Hunting Outfitter & Guide Service

Tallgrass Lodge is a full service Kansas hunting lodge, outfitter and guide service nestled into the flint hills of Northeast Kansas. Our lodge is located two hours north of Wichita, two hours west of Kansas City, and approximately 9 miles southwest of Junction City Kansas. Northeast Kansas sits on the eastern edge of the central flyway. Quite a few waterfowl hunters have been traveling to northeast Kansas to take advantage of the many different waterfowl hunting opportunities available.

We have access to wetlands, ponds, reservoirs, crop fields and river stretches that attract and hold an abundance and great variety of waterfowl. You will mostly be harvesting puddle ducks but we can arrange for you to chase divers late in the season when our guides are available. We can also arrange goose hunts for Canada and Snow Geese by request. If you have a species you are interested in harvesting let us know and we will try and schedule your hunt for their arrival. If you don’t have a lot of experience calling or hunting waterfowl don’t worry about it. Our very experienced guides will be very happy to show you the ropes.
