I’m the 4th generation of Stanley’s living in Lyman County, SD. I was born in 1971 and have been very actively involved with dogs, hunting and habitat development my entire life. In addition to that knowledge, I have a B.S. degree in biology and past experience as a wildlife biologist and water-quality specialist which aid me in the development of pheasant hunting.
I enjoy the opportunity to meet so many great people and to make friends from all over who share the same outdoor passion as myself. I feel privileged to be able to make a living while spending my time with all of you on your hunting vacations!
I’m from Mount Vernon, Washington, and I’ve been hunting Ringnecks properties for the past 12 years. This year will be the 10th year hunting the area with my dog Crackerjack and the 3rd year for us guiding at Ringnecks Hunting Lodge.I enjoy hunting with the diversity of groups from all over the U.S., and I’ve had the privilege of watching Crackerjack point many first roosters for youth hunters or those in their first year hunting wild pheasants in South Dakota. Hunting with me, hit or miss, is an exciting time!I also enjoy soaking up the rich history of Lyman County. Since my arrival, I’ve spent many of my free time at Presho’s Pioneer Museum or out metal detecting various old sites in the area where you can come join me for a hunt after the hunt.
Adam grew up bird hunting in the Pacific Northwest. His love for dog training began when he got Lucky, a springer spaniel, that he trained with the help of a pro at eight years old. Adam trains his dogs by building their confidence in the field and bringing out their skills based on desire and drive rather than force. This is how they reach their true potential and become the best hunting companions they can be. Adam trains out of Northwood Retrievers in beautiful North Idaho. He spends his winters working with other trainers on the Field Trial/Hunt Test circuit in Central California and the fall guiding at Ringnecks Hunting Lodge.
