Marquette County offers some of the best and most varied hunting in the Midwest. The county’s lakes and wetlands, covering thousands of acres, attract hundreds of thousands of waterfowl – gadwall, mallards, pintail, scaup, teal, wood duck and especially the Canadian geese. Wild turkey stalk the county’s woodlands. The upland forests offer a mixed population of game birds, including bobwhite quail, pheasants, ruffed grouse, and woodcock.


The county also hosts a large concentration of whitetail deer and a variety of small game, including cottontail rabbits, red and gray squirrels, coyotes, red and gray foxes, raccoons and coyotes. Much of the county’s hunting land is privately owned, but available for hunting with the landowners’ permission. Most of the county’s lakes, wetlands and public wildlife areas are also accessible and available for hunting.


Mecan River Outfitters offers pheasant hunts on 500 privately owned acres located in the heart of central Wisconsin's best county for recreation with woods, water, farmlands, and marshes teeming with abundant wildlife. Hunt pheasant on open marshes, set-aside land and cornfields. This is prime habitat and excellent cover for the birds. We release top-quality birds with superior flight ability. This not only makes for a successful hunt, but also improves your bird dog's performance.
    The hunts are great for the first-time bird hunter or that young dog because of the quantity of birds.
    The natural conditions also make for wild, wily-acting birds that have humbled the more experienced hunter.
    There are no bag limits and no license is required. They are open seven days a week. A guide and dogs are available; or bring your own dog. We have open daily hunts, memberships and group hunts available. Mecan's season runs from October 1st through mid-March. Call ahead for day and times available. We ask that you wear something orange, whether it is a hat or a vest.

    Mecan River Outfitters are here to provide you with a memorable and safe hunt. We can work with your schedule or help you with that young dog. After the hunt, relax with friends at the lodge
 with drinks and great food.
Mecan River Outfitters also offer
