Choose Orvis-endorsed lodging at Flint Oak Ranch for your wingshooting trip to Kansas. Established in 1978, Flint Oak Ranch has been recognized as America's Premier Hunting Resort. As many hunt clubs start out, Flint Oak Ranch was built on a small amount of acreage. A select few people had the opportunity to experience what Flint Oak Ranch had to offer, but over time and by word of mouth, membership grew. More land was accumulated, and a Village was formed. Securing great members who bring great guests has allowed Flint Oak to establish the best of the best. The relationship between our staff and our members is what feeds our unique culture, and ultimately, the reason we see our members come back every year.
Flint Oak Ranch is the only Orvis-Endorsed Wingshooting Lodge in Kansas, making it an excellent destination for the upland enthusiast. With over 6,000 acres, you won't hunt the same piece of property more than once during your stay. Our field hunts are guided by one of our more than 15 guides, lasting three hours behind four of the 100-plus dogs of Flint Oak. Upon the hunt's conclusion, our guides will drop you off at the lodge and take your harvested game to be processed and packed out on ice, ready for your departure at no additional expense. Flint Oak Ranch also offers six different Europeans, or driven pheasant shoots. Whether you have a group of 6 or a group of 78, we can handle it.
Located in different areas across the ranch with different scenery, our Europeans are a great way to relax and enjoy the camaraderie of Flint Oak Ranch. Get your picture taken for a keepsake, enjoy a snack at halftime, and go home with a cooler full of pheasant meat. Located in the Flint Hills of Kansas, the rich native grass and trees create ideal habitat for upland birds. Our guides go through extensive training to be able to apply their knowledge and experience in the field with customers. At the end of the day, when it is time to enjoy a cold beverage, our friendly waitstaff will take great care of you.

Flint Oak recommends appropriate upland hunting gear for our hunts. Comfortable yet durable boots are highly recommended, as well as tough apparel that will withstand the brush. Waterproof boots can be essential.

As rain or snow could pop up in the forecast for any given day, it is wise always to pack some form of waterproof jacket.
