"Thanks for your great hospitality and good food. We loved it here!"
-Eldon & Marlene, Volparaiso, IN
Bring your hunting buddies or the whole family for a special hunting experience you won’t find on any other farm. Many hunting lodges offer bunkhouse lodging and sub par food. They want their guests to just shoot their grouse, pay the fees, and leave, but at Palmquist Farm, hunting is a longtime family tradition. That’s why we strive to offer a total grouse hunting experience that is enjoyable across the board. The complete experience involves:
Great Grouse Hunting:
The Farm offers more than 1500 private acres of hunting land and is surrounded by 10,000 public acres. Some of this land is managed for aspen production by county, state, and private timber companies. As grouse hunters well know, aspen clear-cut makes for excellent grouse habitat.
Palmquist Farm strives to make your hunt successful and enjoyable. We will provide you with directions and maps to hunting areas both on and off The Farm, or a licensed guide service is available by request. Gun safety and hunter ethics are very important to us because we want you to experience the best hunt possible. Your hunting dogs are always welcome. The season for grouse and woodcock hunting in Wisconsin is generally from mid-September till the end of the year.
Delicious, home-cooked meals:
Helen Palmquist delivers the best of hearty farm food prepared to accommodate your hunting schedule and served in a friendly atmosphere. Sharing your hunting tales over dinner is a must.
Handcrafted, comfortable cabins:
All hunters need a place to relax after a full day in the woods. You won’t find bunkhouses at The Farm, just hot saunas and wood-burning fireplaces to rest your feet by.
Activities for non-hunting family members who may tag along:
Palmquist Farm has hiking, hay rides, lawn games, scavenger hunts, farm animals and much more plus local attractions for the whole family. Even if they don't hunt, they'll have an enjoyable time and a memorable vacation at The Farm.
Palmquist Farm has been featured in numerous newspapers and television shows, including "Stihl's Csonka Outdoors," hosted by former Miami Dolphin fullback Larry Csonka. Owner Jim Palmquist accompanied Larry in a grouse hunt, and the show was aired to millions of viewers. Larry said, "I am just amazed at how many grouse we found in Price County, not only on The Farm but on other land we hunted, including the county forests. It is obvious that land owners and the county have taken steps to cater to these birds. That's why I will be back, and I am sure other hunters will be too."
