Closaway offers a limited number of bookings to provide a higher quality experience. We closely manage species numbers so you can hunt better specimens than you would at typical commercial operations.


Lodging in the Midwestern U.S. is lodge style, with a maximum of six people per trip. The lodge features a full kitchen, gas grill, two bathrooms, and expansive living area with large screen TV. Restaurants and other shopping opportunities are a close drive from each location should you wish to eat in town or purchase supplies.
