Hunting Excursions in Minnesota's "Heart of the Lakes"

Viking Valley Hunt Club is a membership shooting preserve located in central Minnesota's "Heart of the Lakes" region in Otter Tail County. Members experience the pleasure of hunting pheasants from September to April, on eight dedicated fields measuring 400 acres. Viking Valley allows its members to stay in their rustic, yet modern lodge, which has 18 beds in eight different sleeping areas. Guests also have access to docks and pontoons on Lake Jolly Ann and on the private "catch and release" Rask Lake. Viking Valley is also home to one of the most challenging and scenic fully-automated sporting clay courses in the upper Midwest -- with 24 fields and 42 stations, plus 5 stand to keep your sights sharp.


Being located in Otter Tail County's 'Lakes Country,' hunting at Viking Valley Hunt Club doesn't always have to involve shooting. Guests have access to the onsite docks and pontoons on Lake Jolly Ann and on private "catch and release" Rask Lake. Not to mention the countless other lakes, all within short driving distance that offer a chance to land your limit of sunfish, bluegill, and more!


Specifically a private shooting preserve, Viking Valley Hunt Club is the go-to spot for hunting or just keeping your sights sharp. From September to April, prime pheasant hunting takes place on Viking Valley's vast 400 acre premises. Guides and dogs are available upon request, as well as scenic duck hunting, with rustic blinds, boats, and decoys. You can also try your hand at goose hunting and wild turkey hunting during your stay at Viking Valley Hunt Club.

Pet Friendly

Specifically designed as a lodge for hunters, Viking Valley Hunt Club does offer pet-friendly accommodations for those traveling with their four-legged hunting companions. The lodge even has a heated kennel system, accommodating up to 4 dogs. Viking Valley is well aware of the integral role Fido plays when bagging pheasants, ducks, and grouse.
