New York 

When you think of hunting destinations in the United States, New York might surprise you, but did you know this New England state has some of the best waterfowl hunting in the country? With over 20 years of waterfowl hunting experience combined, our waterfowl hunting tours are made up of 5 New York State licensed and insured guides. Within our hunt zone, we are blessed to have various bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, creeks, and swamps all of which provide viable roosting locations for waterfowl. New York also offers some great Eastern Turkey hunting.

Wildside Adventures offers hunters the opportunity to get one of North America’s most sought-after hunting prizes: bull elk! What can we say, we’re “Elk-aholics.” When many think about guided elk hunts, they often think of destinations like Montana & Wyoming, but Arizona is currently producing the largest elk bulls in the world! Now you can hunt elk in northern Arizona with a professional guide service that has a high success ratio for mature bulls that score 350 B&C points or better. 

Hunting Elk is one of the most sustainable ways to source meat in the United States, with the average bull elk yielding over 200 pounds of meat. That’s enough to feed your family for a year!

South Dakota

If a classic Great Plains pheasant hunt is what you’re looking for, our South Dakota-guided pheasant hunting trips offer the perfect itinerary. Join us every fall in the northern plains for a trip full of laughter, fun, and pheasants. After successful hunts on cool autumn days, there is truly nothing better than retreating to a fire at our first-class partner lodge, The Dakota Prairie Lodge and Resort

The orange vests and hats, the sturdy pants for walking through corn stalks and sorghum, the empty shotgun shells, the contest for the longest tail feathers, and the tall tales of amazing shots and unbelievable hits all contribute to the magical aura of pheasant season. We’ll see you there!

With an abundance of Ruffed Grouse, Woodcock, Whitetail Deer, Black Bear and wild Turkey, Wisconsin is a true hunters’ paradise tucked in the Midwest. When you join us for a guided hunt in Wisconsin, you will get to utilize both our excellent guides and hunting dogs. It is nothing to cover ten miles in a day, but you don’t even notice it because of the huge number of birds that you will see. Daily bag limits of 5 grouse and 4 woodcock are not uncommon depending of course on how well you can shoot!

Wisconsin also offers great Black Bear, Whitetail and Turkey hunting for those hunters that cannot travel out west.
