Both Noodle Creek Lodge and the Main Lodge at Windmill Game Ranch are equipped with outdoor bandstands and dance floors for groups to enjoy dancing & listening to Jerry & his local band play country music & classic rock. Both lodges are also equipped with a shooting range for skeet & target practice.
For dove, quail & turkey Jerry sometimes leases several thousand acres of grain fields in addition to the 1400 acres that he owns. Some hunters compared the 2008 Dove hunts at Noodle Creek Lodge to the hunts experienced in Argentina. Many hunters were limiting out in less than 30 minutes, & with the abundance of Eurasian Doves some hunters continued to hunt & wait for these larger exotic birds which have no limit.
