Hickory Creek Outfitters

The Hickory Creek Outfitter located in McCune, KS offers the outdoorsman so many options.  Whether you want to hunt the fabled Kansas Whitetail, Migratory Waterfowl, Predators, Wild Turkey or Doves they have something for you.  Now with three convenient lodges there is plenty of space for your hunting needs.  The little town of McCune is only inhabited by a few thousand people, however, in the winter the duck population grows to over 100,000! The sky is literally black with ducks.  I had the opportunity to hunt the past several seasons with Adam and Mark Bennett the owners of Hickory Creek Outfitter.  The hunting was so amazing my first trip that I had to go back to do it again and again.

Wave after wave of Mallards, Pintails, Gadwalls, Teal, and many other species locked up and descended upon our decoys like squadrons of bombers approaching their targets.  Hunting ducks in layout blinds in a large cornfield was completely new to me but man what an experience.  70 ducks in one day is something that is hard to explain! Meanwhile back at the lodge,  Linda and Jacob Bennett were preparing a different home cooked meal every night.  The hospitality, the comfortable rooms and great conversation made the trip a family type atmosphere.  What a way to unwind from a great full day of hunting.  That’s right, the folks at Hickory Creek Outfitter hunt from first light to sundown every day!  Cooking on the Wildside this week?  Ask Adam about some Duck Sushi!
