Tanglewood Logo


I've hunted wild pheasants in Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansa, and South Dakota. I’ve hunted numerous game farms in Wisconsin.  Many of them offered great cover and great hunts, but Tanglewood is in a class of it’s own. This is as close to South Dakota as you can get. The cover is outstanding. Leaving standing sorghum and corn in patches, swaths of native prairie grass, the riverbank and wood lot, and the steep hillsides provide diverse and changing cover. I've hunted at least five days and yet to cover the entrie far. Come prepared for shooting challenges as brids flush at the most inopportune times. In mor of the fields, if you see any buildings at all it's the lodge. The birds are outstanding. They know how to fly. The first Monday in January 2014 I took my three boys and two labs and started hunting in 15 below weather with a nice snow cover...There are lots of scratch birds and they are eating the sorghum and are healthy. So you think you are going for a reflush and three birds get up. Be ready...The times I've hunted with snow on the ground there were tracks all over, and just before sunset the cocks started talking from all over. The lodge is beautiful and homey. It has a great kitchen, the people are helpful and outgoing, and the bird cleaning facilities are outstanding and warm. If you don't have the time to sneak out west, spend a day or two at Tanglewood and just enjoy the experience.

My husband and I entertained eight delighted guests at wonderful Tanglewood Lodge in mid-August. We noted that the listing description, photos, and ammenities were entirely accurate. The cleanliness and maintenence of the interior/exterior were superior. The owner offered his services with friendliness and professional attention. We rate this 4 seasons, exceptionally furnished, scenic 500+ acre property, as excellent value and a 5+ star experience. In addition to recommending this property, especially for larger groups, we'll happily consider entertaining guests in the near future at Tanglewood Lodge.

My husband and I needed a short getaway and found Tanglewood to be the perfect spot. The cabin is immaculate, located on beautiful scenery, near fabulous Mineral Point. The cabin is completely modern with every convenience you can think of. We enjoyed hiking the land and enjoying peace and quiet during the day and a nice dinner in town with friendly locals at night. Thank you for a great place to stay. Looking forward to sharing it with friends next summer.

I have had the good fortune to hunt at Tanglewood at least twice a year since it opened in 2004. The acreage available to hunt and work dogs is unmatched when comparing hunt clubs anywhere in Wisconsin. We had a lot of crazy weather over the years at Tanglewood. No matter what the condition the cover has always provided for a good hunt. Deep snow or cold weather are no problem for the staff to accommodate guests. Next best thing to South Dakota without the drive.

I have been able to entertain clients at Tanglewood on numerous occasions. The main lodge leaves a lasting memory for any outdoors person that sees it.

At the end of the day the one thing that really separates the Tanglewood Ranch is the owner Kurt Wedig and his staff, everyone is always accommodating and has the guest’s best interest in mind. At Tanglewood it’s always “A good time had by all.”
