KLM GNA will be conducting a Grouse Camp with a gathering point at Summit Lake Game Farm located in Stone Lake, Wisconsin. This is an informal gathering in the north woods of Wisconsin. Summit Lake Game Farm is in some of the most productive grouse woods in the Midwest, with the grouse camp timed to provide opportunities for Woodcock, excellent for younger dogs, as well as limited waterfowl. Summit Lake is a pheasant preserve offering KLM GNA members an opportunity to setup preserve hunts as well as offering Sporting Clays and Skeet for warmup(s). If you are interested in arranging a pheasant hunt, please contact Summit Lake to reserve your field.
We have secured one of their three rental cabins, the Bunk House which offers 3 bedrooms and can sleep 8. This will be on a first come opportunity for anyone who which to secure one of the rooms. For one of the rooms please contact:
Additional accommodations on site include rustic camp sites with a bath house or full hook-up camp sites. Summit Lake has recommended that if you wish to camp, please make your reservations early, they fill up due to hunters and fall color tours.
Accommodation either in Rice Lake or Hayward can be arranged can also be arranged, the site listed below allow pets, but by no means is a comprehensive list. Worst case, Summit Lake does offer dog kennels that we may use too if you run into difficulty in finding pet friendly accommodations.
The hunting will be on public lands, with some pre-mapped areas to assist the different groups. If you are new to the grouse woods, we’ll work to pair members up with more experienced members.This is Grouse Camp, so nightly social hour(s) will be conducted at Bunkhouse Cabin with a bonfire, weather permitting. If there is enough interest, we can setupa communal dinner on Saturday Night.

Hunting License information
To purchase a small game license, please use the following link to Wisconsin’s DNR non-resident License.
If this is the first time you’re going to hunt in Wisconsin, I would encourage you to look at the Nonresident First-time Buyer option. To hunt woodcock, you must select the HIP certificate (at no cost) when purchasing your small game license. When hunting woodcock your firearm must be plugged to limit its total capacity to no more than 3 shells.
If you chose to try to get in a waterfowl hunt too, please ensure you purchase the Wisconsin Waterfowl Stamp too along with your Federal Waterfowl Stamp. All waterfowl hunting requires non-tox shot, while grouse and woodcock do not.
If you chose to hunt only at Summit Lake Game Farm for one of their field hunts, you are not required to purchase a Wisconsin Hunting License.
