Hunts Point Sportsman’s Club is anything but a typical hunting preserve. At Hunts Point, you’ll find excellent habitat for pheasant hunting, a challenging 10 station sporting clays course and 5-stand course, field trials and events, and unique shooting opportunities like European Tower Shoots.

In its lodge, Hunts Point offers the perfect atmosphere to mix business with pleasure. It's a great place to entertain your clients or customers with an afternoon of hunting or a relaxing round of sporting clays.

Hunts Point Sportsman’s Club opened for business in 2002 with the main goal of providing guests with a true hunting experience and exciting, unique shooting opportunities. Located in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes Area, Hunts Point has more than 500 acres of prime land, featuring a mix of habitat for excellent bird hunting. Instead of releasing pheasants in a small field for  hunters, we developed a “small farm” concept with large fields and meadows, more consistent with a realistic bird hunt. In the middle of all our land is a challenging 10 station sporting clay and 5-Stand course and a grove of trees we use for European Tower Shoots, which most sportsmen in Minnesota have never participated in, let alone heard of. But those who try it love it. And since our passion is our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers, we wanted our club to offer the finest facilities for dog training and field events.

On January 23, 2011 we had a devastating fire that destroyed our clubhouse which we had worked so hard on renovating. 

We have rebuilt a new clubhouse, along with a 7,700 sq. ft. K-9 Center.  Obedience, Rally and Agility classes will be offered.  This is the first of agility being offered in the area.  K-9 Center

We invite you to come out and visit us, to see what we're all about. Come as an individual or with a group. We think you'll like what you find.

Today, the hunt club serves the role of alleviating the strain of population pressure on public hunting grounds by offering extended seasons and days in the field where no other hunting parties will be encountered. These operations also are playing an important role in the transitioning of young and first-timer hunters, increasingly women, in a somewhat more controlled environment than would be present on public land during the regular hunting season. In many states, hunting clubs are regular centers for Youth in the Outdoors, Becoming an Outdoor Woman, American Wilderness Leadership School programs for grade-school teachers and similar outdoor-education and outdoor-experience programs.

The American hunting tradition traces its roots to the historic "long-hunter" explorer frontiersman. Americans born and bred in the last century with traditional open access to most public and private lands associate a “wild freedom" with a day in the field. Although the thought of hunting on a "preserve" or a "game farm" is anathema to many hunters, who are traditionally unwilling to pay to access the sport, this attitude is changing. Private land is increasingly difficult to access, partly due to liability issues, and public land is increasingly congested due to population pressure, burgeoning urban encroachment and rural housing development.

Unlike North America, Europe and most of the rest of the world has always had some sort of managed hunting, and it is a respected part of their cultural traditions. Only available to the elite for centuries, hunting was on private estates where game managers policed the grounds, managed habitat and supplemented game populations with reared animals. Hunts were (and still are) conducted under the control of a gillie, JaegerMeister "hunt-master" or similar professional guide. In most parts of the world, access by individuals for hunting (or fishing) is only available on a for-fee, by-arrangement basis and is on private property.

For-fee hunting operations primarily are oriented to the needs of individuals who purchase sustaining yearly memberships, many of which belong to competitive pointing-dog field-trial competitors, breeders or handlers who pay the yearly membership fee to work their dogs over live birds. Although there is no set bag limit, usually a given number of birds are released per hunter before the hunt to ensure a bird presence within that day's active area of the club's grounds. Bird cleaning and packaging is available for a small fee.
