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 7 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.

Kyle, I wanted to thank you and your staff for yet again a marvelous visit with Northern Flight and Woodland Resort. The duck/goose hunting was awesome and the comfort and hospitality provided by the resort was top notch.

Please provide a special shout out to your lovely bride Karn and her staff for their assistance in the resort office and to your son Warren who is a special young man who knows the craft of guiding.

Kyle, I am 70 years old and have been hunting since my early teens on the Chesapeake Bay with family and friends and can tell you without hesitation that they would be impressed with your operation.

We are duck hunters who have our own duck club at the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Years ago we were looking for a quality productive outfitter for hunting before our season opened in November. Kyle Blanchfield, his staff and guides at Northern Flight Guide Service always exceeds our expectations. Quality duck and goose hunting, large comfortable cabins, bar and restaurant on property. Very friendly folks who never disappoint at reasonable rates!!
