The Wilderness Reserve Geared Up For Hunting Season

The Wilderness Reserve of Phelps is excited to announce the opening of the 2014 hunting season on their historic reserve. And with 5500 acres of raw nature in the beautiful Northwoods of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, The Wilderness Reserve is a hunter’s paradise!


Pheasant & Big Game Hunting Season Opens at The Wilderness

“We are locked and loaded for another fantastic fall hunting season!” says Wilderness Reserve Operations Manager, Nils Swanson. Hunting season at The Wilderness Reserve kicked off this week, on September 1st and will run through Christmas. The Wilderness offers Whitetail Deer and Rocky Mountain Elk hunt packages, as well as pheasant hunting. Bird hunters are welcome to bring their own dogs, or take advantage of The Wilderness’ dog/handler packages.

With a rolling terrain of forests, fields and marshes, the Reserve provides a challenging environment for hunters of all skill levels. And The Wilderness Team has been hard at work throughout the last year, getting ready for the season. “The lodge is open to our hunters, an excellent hub for guides and hunters to strategize over a great meal and beautiful vista. We’ve made improvements on our hunting blinds and food plots, and are pleased to offer even more comfort and a high level of privacy to our hunters”, Nils says.

Cabins with a View at The Wilderness Reserve

Each cabin sits on a private lake with breathtaking views all around, and comes complete with a fishing. Staying in one of the cabins can have you feeling like the rest of the world has disappeared, giving you the opportunity to sit back, breathe easy and truly appreciate the wonders of nature.

And The Wilderness Team really thinks of everything for their guests! Each cabins is outfitted with all the dishes and cookware you will need for your stay, life jackets for your boat ride, and firewood for the fireplace or a campfire. Even coffee is supplied, and we recommend enjoying your morning cup along with a great view from the screened porch of your cabin.

The Wilderness Reserve Nature Opportunities

The unique thing about this Reserve is that it’s not just for hunters – The Wilderness frequently hosts family vacations, romantic getaways and even corporate retreats. The abundance of Northwoods wildlife makes it a great destination for animal observations, and guests enjoy hiking, fishing, kayaking and more. Each season has its offerings, and you will want to have your camera along to capture each scene.

With the vivid colors of fall fast approaching, The Wilderness Reserve will be transforming from a lush green haven to a stunning lakeautumn canvas. At The Wilderness, this is the time for hunters and sportsman, with Whitetail Cabin available to rent again in mid-December. Winter visitors can enjoy snowshoeing, ice fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling on Phelps trails, accessible just up the road from The Wilderness.
