Pheasant/Goose Hunting
A perfect pairing for your trophy whitetail hunt may be some high-flying bird action. Our hunters have truly enjoyed our outstanding field goose hunting during early season and well as migration hunts in layout blinds or hiding out near cut corn fields for giant Canadian honkers! The pheasant hunting and grouse hunting are also a fun combination to any deer hunt.

What is a "hogsback" and where is your hunting preserve located?
The name Hogsback Ranch comes from a land feature on the ranch that has been called the Hogsback ever since we can remember. A "hogsback" is a ridge of land having steep slopes at the sides and a sharp crest. Yes, it is a real word! Hunt our beautiful rolling preserve from your choice of elevated stands, ground blinds and tree stands. Enjoy the thrill as you watch trophy bucks in their natural habitat. Watch as grunt calls and rattling techniques drive ‘em crazy. Take your buck with rifle, muzzleloader or bow. You’re in the action at Hogsback Ranch!

Our hunting preserve is located in Taylor County in beautiful North Central Wisconsin, just west of the town of Gilman. For detailed directions, please contact Luke.
