General Info

Our season is typically mid-May through the end of August. We also have one or two weeks of hunting at the end of September that we'll only need a few staff for. Each employee has their own bedroom and share a bath with one other person. There is a large screened in area connected to the staff quarters for everyone to hang out in when you're not working. You're also allowed (and encouraged) to hang out at the lodge with our guests as well. All meals are included and you'll be eating the same great food as our guests - no KD for every meal here! We include 3 days of paid vacation during the season. Staff is given free phone calls and internet as long as it isn't abused.
