Hunting Trips and Lodges | Milford Hills Hunt Club



Nestled midway between the cities of Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a 500-square-mile rural gem called Jefferson County. This remote span of classic farmland is home to Milford Hills, one of the finest shooting resorts in the Upper Midwest. The full-service establishment specializes in premium upland hunts for hard-flying pheasants, chukars and quail, and guests experience bird numbers, dogwork, habitat, hospitality and amenities that are on par with some of the best shooting resorts in America. In a region that offers few upscale bird hunting venues, Millford Hills shines brightly as the resort of choice for discerning wingshooters.

Having a car during one’s stay is recommended, as the overnight lodge on the property is located a short drive from the main Clubhouse and dining facility.

The pet-friendly lodge allows hunting dogs to stay indoors during the day/night and offers individual kennels for smaller dogs.

Milford Hills offers two 12-station sporting clays courses and a Five Stand from early Spring to late Fall. The facilities are excellent for hosting NSCA registered shoots, fundraisers and corporate events.

``Milford Hills has worked hard to create the best bird habitat in the region, and that really has had a wonderful impact on the quality of the hunting. I also appreciate the extremely high level of respect they have for their guests! They have a great way of making you feel like a valued patron.``
