Picture in your mind a cool crisp morning with a Wyoming sunrise peeking around a handcrafted, rustic log lodge. Picture the explosive takeoff of a brilliantly colored rooster pheasant as he attempts to escape. Picture a perfectly formed V of Canadian Honkers, locked up, coming straight at you.
Finally, picture a seafood extravaganza with whole Maine lobsters, paired perfectly with complimentary wines.
Welcome to Goose Bump Bird Hunting Lodge, where the picture becomes reality. Then you ask “how can this be true in Wyoming. It’s a big game hunting destination.” Well ——
We are situated right in the heart of the Wyoming Game and Fish’s Springer/Bump Sullivan Wildlife Habitat management area, one hour from Cheyenne, Wyoming.
This area consists of 3047 acres managed by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, and is considered by many to be “one of the best pheasant and goose hunting areas in the state”, as quoted by the Wyoming Game and Fish website.
The Game and Fish raises and releases thousands of pheasants in the area each year. They have provided geese with artificial nesting structures, which results in thousands of goose eggs being laid each year. The ice is kept off of Springer lakes and ponds so upwards of 20,000 – 40,000 Canadian Geese winter here. Add all this up and it equates to a perfect bird hunting area with a beautiful gathering place ————–
Goose Bump Bird Hunting Lodge was literally built by hand, from Wyoming harvested beetle killed wood. When you step into the lodge, you will immediately sense a feeling of warmth and relaxation that only real wood logs can elicit. The lodge is more a work of art than it is a building.
Filled with wildlife art, and a hunting themed decor, the Great Room is a perfect gathering place. This room includes couches and recliners, a large screen television, free WiFi, pellet stove and community dinner table that transforms into a professional poker table complete with cards and chips.
Next we have a gourmet kitchen where all of the wonderful meals are prepared including bison prime rib, and whole Maine lobsters.
Off of the great room is the outhouse where you can shower with unlimited hot water.
Going up the hand-built spiral staircase, you walk into six individual bedrooms with twin XL beds for your comfort (no bunk beds).
Finally, you continue up to our sky lounge, where you can sit down with a panoramic view of all the landscape and enjoy a complimentary cold tap beer from the onsite kegs. Now that you’re totally comfortable, let’s go ————-
We raise our own pheasants and chuckars on site to ensure the highest quality birds. They are flight trained in a large, tall pen. They are as close to a wild bird as it gets. We have many natural pheasants in the area due to nesting grounds on either side of us, making for an unbelievable pheasant hunting experience.
We have seven goose pits on the property with a total of twenty-two seats. The Goose Bump Limo delivers you and your guide to a comfortable pit complete with, propane heaters and decoys.
Hunters are welcome to bring their own dogs. We have outside kennels with insulated dog houses. We ask that all dogs remain in these kennels when not hunting.
