Be sure to read the full outfitter review from the guys at huntthenorth.com when they named northern flight guide service the 2017 outfitter of the year!




The Devils Lake region is positioned in the heart of the prairie pothole country in north central North Dakota. In the past years our area has been an epicenter for a large percentage of the continental duck production. Our area hosts a massive variety of migrating ducks and geese that travel the central flyway. Our region is one of the largest fall staging areas for snow and blue geese, produce and are home to thousands of giant Canada geese, and hosts thousands of Sandhill crane each season. Few places can offer the variety and quality of waterfowl hunting that the Devils Lake region has to offer.

Come and experience an in-your-face guided duck or goose hunt over the harvested grain fields of North Dakota.  You will enjoy mallards, pintails, snow geese, Canada geese, and Sandhill crane over state of the art decoy spreads.  Nothing beats close shots at waterfowl being fooled at sun up!

Northern Flight prides itself on quality one-on-one service. Your group will hunt with one of our professional guides. Our staff consists of five experienced guides that want you to get the most out of your hunt.  You will stay at Woodland Resort, Devils Lake’s premier lakeside hunting and fishing lodge.  Woodland is our home base and has been since 1988, hosting waterfowl hunters.  Top notch guides, great gear, outstanding lodging and meals, and huge numbers of ducks and geese make our guide company an easy choice for your next guided duck and guided goose hunting trip.

“World class! We’ve been looking for a better outfitter for 20 years. No one beats northern flight guide service for the best guides, equipment, locations, and accommodations. Our highest recommendations.”

– Pat Torhorst and Steve Simanek

For the past ten years I have stayed at the Woodland Resort and hunted with Northern Flight Guide Service. What a great combination! The cabins are really nice and the food is good too. The large cabins make it nice to visit, and have drinks and hors d’oeuvres before dinner. The Northern Flight Guide Service guides areexperienced, hardworking, and productive. They scout every evening and then come to see us while we are eating dinner at the The Cove restaurant and tell us what fields we are going to hunt and the type of waterfowl. We usually have a choice of ducks, geese, or a combination of the two to hunt. Northern Flight G.S. has many acres of land leased so the fields are allowed to rest between hunts. I couldn’t ask for more.

We use Northern Flight Guide Service and the Woodland Resort each year. You can’t beat the fantastic action, service, hospitality, and great accommodations. I tell everyone that if I had a choice to go anywhere in the world for duck and goose hunting, I would definitely go to Devils Lake and use Northern Flight Guide Service. The last few years with this outfitter have given me great memories that I will be able to tell stories about for decades.
