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.
Will resides in a small town in North Idaho with his wife Brandy and two boys. They run Northwood Retrievers as breeders of well-bred Labradors which possess a passion to hunt, classic Labrador good looks, and the ability to fit into family life.
When Will is not guiding at Ringnecks, he is an electrician by trade though he’d much rather be lost in the woods with the family, hunting or fishing.
Will and the dogs are anxiously awaiting their second pheasant season guiding in 2018, though multiple dogs out of their kennel have hunted and guided the Ringnecks’ grounds in previous years.
