What to Expect

 When moving cattle through their pasture rotations you are sure to have a flock of prairie chickens and sharptail grouse take flight under your horse’s belly. El Lake, the beginning of the Evergreen creek, is a small lake stocked with an abundance of bass, northern pike, and bluegill.

The Ranch has RV and tent camping available, but hotel lodging is available in a short drive. Valentine is a small town at the junction of two major US Highways, 20 and 83. You can find just about anything you need here— there are two gun stores, a bait shop, a grocery store, etc.

Although we don't have a minimum for days booked in a trip, we highly recommend booking multiple days to take full advantage of what our ranch can offer! Our family has had great success hunting the ranch and we look forward to sharing this with other sportsmen!

    "Bob and Jody are great folks and Lovejoy Ranch is a piece of heaven. Bob showed me around the ranch and went into pretty good detail on how to hunt the ranch and showing me boundaries. Jody was excellent host and communications were excellent. Both made me feel right at home and I made new friends that will always be special to me. The property has good herd of whitetail and mule deer with some exceptional animals. I also saw upland birds, turkeys, and lots of waterfowl flying overhead. The hunt is by no means easy but if you are determined, put in the effort and be patient you can no doubt be successful here. I plan on coming back. Great ranch and even greater people. A+++++++++++"

    Jody and Bob were great! Very friendly and welcoming having us on their ranch. They showed us where we could camp and talked with us about what we were seeing. Showed us boundary lines and checked in with us to see if we needed anything. Would definitely recommend taking a look at the ranch and hope to return in the future!

    The Lovejoy ranch is a fantastic location for birding and observing unique species. Some species seen include unlikely finds like a female sharptailed grouse with seven chicks, and a nesting colony of black terns. The area houses wetlands, small forests, and mixed grass prairie. We had the property mostly to ourselves allowing for peaceful observation of species. One of the best birding experiences I have had in the region. Would definitely recommend it to any birder looking for a different and personal birding experience.

    The group had an incredible hunt! Successfully harvested two nice toms and saw tons of other birds. Did some great bass fishing to top off the trip. What an incredible spot, with incredible hosts!
