The Taj Mahal of Duck Hunting

*1999 WSJ article by James P. Sterba

Duck hunting is about more than just ducks. It’s about a hearty breakfast after a cold morning in the woods. It’s about a good afternoon nap in a quiet room. It’s about good friends telling stories around a fire pit… some of them true. It’s about a dinner so good you talk about it until you come back again next year.

If you want more out of your next duck hunting trip you need to stay at the CrossHeirs Retreat Center.

Sitting on a secluded peninsula amidst a 280 acre farm just outside of Stuttgart, CrossHeirs is the ideal setting for your next lifetime memory. Big Jim’s Lodge is the centerpiece of CrossHeirs. The 14,000 square foot, 16-bedroom facility was built in 1999 and has been described by the Wall Street Journal as the “Taj Mahal of Duck Hunting!”

Each of Big Jim’s 16-rooms comes with two queen sized beds and its own private bathroom. The towering den makes the perfect backdrop to reflect on the days hunt, bask in the glow of the wood burning fireplace or challenge your friends to a game of pool.
