The Story

Prairie Wildlife is the premier conservation-driven sporting estate located in the heart of the Mississippi Black Prairie. Prairie Wildlife is the culmination of Mr. Jimmy Bryans vision. “Mr. Jimmy” as he is affectionally known is a lifelong Mississippi native and an avid quail hunter, he decided 25 years ago that he wanted to bring back the quail hunting tradition to how he remembered it in his youth.

He set about resurrecting the habitat which supported a viable healthy quail population. Working with leading quail biologist at Mississippi State University he has planted native warm season grasses, hedge rows and other vegetation that supports quail.

From your arrival to your departure you will be provided with exacting service in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.

Your walkup quail hunting will be in a variety of locations where you will experience excellent dog work, strong flying birds and dedicated and experienced guides. If you prefer you can bring and hunt behind your own bird dogs which can be housed in dog kennels set aside for the exclusive use of guests.

After your hunt you will relax in comfort enjoying a cigar and cocktail on the lodge veranda overlooking our horseshoe lake, filled with bass and other pan fish. Or you can enjoy the patio with its fire pit and relive your day afield.

The Prairie Wildlife chef will prepare gourmet meals that befit the finest restaurant and enjoyed in a collegial atmosphere.

If you find some down time, try our 5-stand, Helice course or one of our other shooting venues under the guidance of our shooting instructor.

Thierry Bombeke, longtime publisher of Shooting Sportsman Magazine and international wing shooter said of PW: ‘I would like to thank all of you for the extraordinary manner in which you accommodated the Shooting Sportsman group. We have conducted our hunts at dozens of the world’s best lodges, and I cannot think of any that did a better job than Prairie Wildlife! Every aspect of our experience was excellent, and I appreciate the effort that all of you made to make it that way.'

Orvis is pleased to offer our travel customers access to two valuable services: Global Rescue travel membership and IMG Signature Travel Insurance℠.

The Tower shooting requires 10 guns and can accommodate up to 20 shooters, because they are rotating through ten different double-positions as the shoot progresses.

How old do hunters have to be?

Minimum age requirement for hunters is 10 years old, we prefer a hunter safety course be taken by the hunter

Do you offer shooting instruction?

Yes, we do offer shotgun shooting instruction. Our Orvis-certified professional shooting instructor is available for beginning and novice shooters, as well as more advanced shooters who want to polish their skills. All shooting instruction requires an appointment.

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellation within 60 days of the hunt deposit is non-refundable. If the balance is paid, the balance will be applied to a future hunt at a later date. Cancellation within 30 days is non-refundable.

Your booking is very important to us, and we put a lot of time and effort into being prepared for your visit. Cancellations and no-shows result in over-staffing and unnecessary expenses, which we would rather not pass on to our guests through higher prices. Please remember that this is a seasonal business with limited days (and particularly weekends) to schedule hunts. We will not over-book, so it is very difficult to fill the slot reserved for you with another guest's activities. It is an opportunity lost to us and to other guests.

Can I hunt with my own dog?

Yes, we encourage our guests to bring their dogs to Prairie Wildlife. We want to make certain you enjoy your hunt, and a big part of that is dog performance. You will have an abundance of opportunity to get your dog into a lot of birds. This may lead to sensory overload and a lot excitement for your dog. If they are lacking response to basic commands, or flushing birds out-of-range, we want you then to have the opportunity to continue the remainder of your hunt behind your guide's well-trained and experienced bird dogs. When staying overnight on-site kennels are available to shelter your dog at the lodge. Under no circumstances are dogs permitted inside the lodge. When not on a guided hunt, your dog must be in a kennel or on a leash and in your control at all times. Hunting dogs are not permitted to wander the property area because we have traps and snares set for predator control and do not want to risk injury to any dogs.

Can you tailor the adventure to suit the physical abilities of the hunters?

Yes, we cater to our hunter’s physical abilities and level of difficulty they wish to experience. Guests will find our hunting grounds are relatively flat and easy walking, but at times can become muddy.

Do you have meals available?

Yes. If you would like meals to accompany your visit, we need to know in advance. We do not have a restaurant on the premises. Reservations are required for any of the three delicious meals we serve. We have an excellent chef and an experienced kitchen staff. Special dietary needs can be accommodated with advance notification.
