A trio of Nebraska Prairie Chickens in the middle of their courtship dance."What a great experience! Not only did I shoot my first turkey on this trip, I shot my first three. You have great facilities. Some of the best hunting accommodations I have had the opportunity to stay at.

Thank you for the hospitality and the great food. Most of all thank you for the great time!"

A group of Nebraska Pheasant hunters with their catch for the day."Hello Switzers, I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a good time and a great Pheasant hunt I had with you in January of 2009. All of you folks made me feel at home and like family. The Pheasant hunt was outstanding!! I felt that I got way more than my money's worth. Adam and his dogs put me on birds constantly. Adam's knowledge of the game and ranch were impressive!! Jake and Honky are two of the best dogs I have ever hunted over. I could not have asked for more. The lodging and meals were excellent. It was extra nice to have a private room and bath. Not many lodges provide this type of accommodation.

Your habitat and conservation efforts are impressive. One thing that I really enjoyed, was seeing the large number of Deer and Turkey. We saw 40-50 Deer(Whitetail and Mulies) each day. And Turkey, I have never seen so many in one place ever! And I live in Texas where we have large populations of them.

Please tell everyone I said hello and thank them for treating me so well. Thanks again for a great time. I plan to come back this Fall for another hunt!"

"We just wanted to take this simple opportunity to THANK YOU and your family for allowing us to share in your beautiful surroundings, your lifestyle, and friendship/fellowship. Our mid-August Dahlgren Family Reunion with you, nestled in amongst the Sandhill country was perhaps one of the most peaceful and memorable 'vacations' we have had the privilege to enjoy for a long time. The weather was perfect, the family get-together surpassed even our own expectations...and we know so much of our happy memories are because of WHERE we were, not just who we were with.

Bruce's poetry will be forever with us, giving us cause to look back and smile wide. Ardy and Debbie will be forever grateful for the opportunity to 'ride alone' for even a short time, spending time on horseback together again! In an age where families tend to move further and further apart, it was nice to see yours coming together in the Burwell area. In the future perhaps our big family can do the same again, even for a short time, and we want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to do just that. You really know how to make a crown feel welcome and "at home on the range". Thanks Again. God bless you all."

"Now that I have returned to Connecticut and resettled into my job, I wanted to take time to write this thank you note for a refreshing and wonderful vacation on your ranch. Not only did I have a relaxing and most satisfying time, I can now look forward to some delicious meals of Prairie Chicken and Sharptail Grouse and Mourning Dove.

My time at your ranch shall long be remembered as one of the best vacation hunts and the chance to meet some Nebraska Ranchers who I found to be friendly and most happy to see that your time with them was something I will long remember as outstanding.

The food which I will describe was delicious and non pareil in presentation by Ranch owner Sue.

The guiding by Adam and Dillon was beyond compare. Adam, you and Dillon showed me there is no end to the energy you expensed to make sure that guests are given a fair chance at the great abundance of game the ranch possesses, only my poor shooting was not up to the task, but that didn't stop you from trying from sun up to sun down, to continue to show me the multitude of Prairie Chicken and Sharptail Grouse your ranch land is blessed with. The Mourning Dove abundance was over the top. My shoulder is still black and blue which helps me to recall all of my missed shots at my final tally of 10 birds in four days of hunting. Not a very good take when one shoots five boxes of 28 ga shells but just seeing that many doves on one ranch reminded me of what it must be like in Argentina.

To end, I want to say thank you for a wonderful and accommodating time at the most relaxing and fulfilling place in America that I have ever experienced in my 65 years of outdoor pursuit."

"We have been staying with the Switzer's since they opened and consider them family. We come fishing every Spring with a group of 10-15. We always catch fish and most of the time limit out. For a great time and great people we highly recommend Calamus Outfitter's for your trip, as long as you don't try and book the big lodge the weekend before Memorial Day as we have that reserved in perpetuity!"

"HI!! We just returned home from your wonderful area and just wanted to tell you that we had a wonderful time! The family hasn't travelled together to many times and this was close enough that we were able to come together!!!! We were in the lodge area and it was perfect! Much better that I expected!!!Have been to some pretty rough cabins! Also checked out the cabins and was very impressed with those! We will be back! The lake was great and our weekend could only have been better had we caught more fish! We did catch some trout and had a great time!!! Thanks so much!!! Dennis and Geradette Bohac and family!!!"
