We just received a shipment of KlM calendars from Germany!
The calendars cost $25 (includes shipping) and have wonderful photos and short sayings in German about hunting and our dogs. Each month has a beautiful photo of our KlM in a variety of hunting and domestic situations.

KLM GNA will be conducting an Iowa Pheasant Hunt in the Spirit Lake / Lake Okoboji area of Iowa Nov. 20-22, 2021! The hunt will be in groups on public land. These areas are very large (several hundred to several thousand acres) able to accommodate larger groups. There will also be opportunities if you wish to break off and explore on your own. The hunting conditions are primarily large high density native grass fields and cat tail depressions.
Also, a second hunt is being considered at this time for December 27-29th pending interest and weather conditions. See our Event Calendar for more details!
KLM-GNA fall hunt in Pierre South Dakota
After strong consideration, we have made the decision to cancel the fall hunt in Pierre South Dakota scheduled for November 4th – 7th. Because of the extended drought and the emergency livestock grazing that was allowed on the public land, there is little cover to hold birds. The club has had a couple of our members visit the area to confirm what opportunities may be available, with the recommendation(s) coming back not having people travel for what will be very little opportunity to enjoy working our dogs.
We are exploring an alternative hunt this year in the northwestern part of Iowa which has good ground cover and encouraging reports from the Iowa’s DNR August road survey. The hunt would be on the numerous public areas around Storm Lake, Iowa with potential dates being November 20th – 23rd, December 17th – 20th , December 27th -30th or that first week in January. Please reach out to me if you are interested so that we can land on a date if there is enough interest.
