Ringneck Ranch, Inc. in North Central Kansas
Ringneck Ranch®, Inc. is located on land that our family homesteaded in 1872, a time when the Cheyenne and herds of buffalo still roamed central Kansas. The ranch sits isolated in a pristine prairie valley looking out on the Blue Hills range.
Keith and Debra have personally owned and have professionally operated Ringneck Ranch on the families 5th generation homestead since its inception in 1983. The operation includes over 10,000 acres of the finest native pheasant, bobwhite quail and prairie chicken habitat imaginable. Coverts, ranging from easily traversed thin strips of weeds to sprawling fields of chest-high CRP grasses, are managed with both the hunted and the hunter in mind.
To further opportunities for our guests, we have established several broad sections of ground where gunners can enjoy longer seasons and extended limits.
Gunless Guides, Seasoned Hunt Dogs & Small Hunting Parties
We understand that it takes more than quality gunning to satisfy today’s wingshooting enthusiast. Hunting parties are kept small for safety’s sake, and all are lead afield by one of the Ranch’s gunless professional guides. The guides pride themselves on their seasoned dogs from a variety of pointing breeds.
Our superb wingshooting, peaceful lodging and bountiful country gourmet meals, all woven together with exemplary service, are reasons that most guests have established the tradition of an annual trip to the ranch, often returning with the next generation.
