Thank you Grady and Hanne for once again creating a first class experience on our second S.D. pheasant hunt with O.D. Outfitters! The accommodations were fantastic and your gracious hospitality will have us returning for years to come. I can't imagine a more spectacular pheasant hunt experience; once again, you've exceeded all expectations! -Tim, Maryland
I've headed west to hunt pheasants for more than 40 years, in three different states. Old Dominion Outfitters puts on one of the best hunts you can experience. These folks do there up most to see that your hunt with them is successful and enjoyable. Keep in mind, this is a Wild Bird Hunt, not a canned hunt with pen reared birds. On the hunts I've had with them, we hunted all day. But there were a couple days, over three seasons, we finished early with a group of ten or more. If you'd like a combo hunt, there's a shallow lake on the farm that provides an opportunity for a number of duck species, with light and dark geese also. Grady works hard at putting you in the birds. He walks right with the group and doesn't quit on you. The lodge is a renovated church with all the needed necessities. As for the food, it's the best I've had in all the years I've headed west. Hanne is a gourmet cook and she proves it. Couldn't tell you how many times I heard "this is tremendous" at the dinner table. So, if you're looking for good hunt and a truly Wild Bird experience, these are your folks. -Dave, Michigan.
As a newbie to the Pheasant Hunt and hearing nothing but great things I had very high expectations. Every one of those expectations were exceeded, from the accommodations which were first class, to the excellent meals provided, to the unbelievable amount of fun hunting the birds. I can see why the other guys have repeated this trip several times. Thanks again for a very memorable experience. -Joe, Maryland
Another GREAT year with Old Dominion Outfitters. FIRST CLASS IN EVERY ASPECT! From the time we show up to the time we have to leave, nothing is MISSED by Hanne and Grady, which is why we return EVERY YEAR! Thanks again for a great time and memories to last a lifetime. -Dan, Maryland
Hanna/Grady,We would like to thank you for a great hunt this last November. It was one of our best if not the best hunts that we have had. Staying at the Cathedral and hunting your property was the best. You two sure know how to accommodate the hunters. We limited out every day. We would advise anybody that wants to experience a fantastic hunting trip they need to get in touch with you two for their next trip. I have attached a few pictures for you. We are looking forward to this coming season to be back out there and enjoy the hunt and the friends that we have made with you. Again thanks for the Great Time. -Mike, Scott, Nick, Greg and Barry
I have hunted with Grady and Old Dominion Outfitters for over ten years of "FANTASTIC" goose hunting. Grady is a great guide always with a good attitude and accomodates youth up to seniors for the hunting parties. Top of the line equipment,blinds and decoys for your enjoyment. His trained working dogs are a pleasure to watch retrieve. "Get Ready" "Let's Take Em". --George, Virginia
I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a pleasure our pheasant hunting trip was this year. Besides hitting our limit on birds every day of the hunt, you guys truly made us feel welcome and like family. The accommodations were second to none and Hanne’s meals were dynamite. Relaxing by the fire just enjoying the social experience was a special few days that will never be forgotten. Already have it on my calendar for 2013 hunt. God Bless,-Craig, Dunkirk Md.
I’ve been using Grady Jolley to goose hunt since the early 2000’s and it’s always a great trip. He works very hard to get the geese in and close and as long as we are shooting well – we kill a lot of geese! One of the special aspects of hunting with Grady has been bringing my son along with the hunts since he was 4; and last year my son Grant hunted for the first time and look how well we did. I highly recommend Old Dominion Outfitters and Grady Jolley to you. --Rich, Virginia Co-Pastor, Horizons Church
"My friends and I have bird hunted in many places in and out of the USA. However, we have been disappointed more than once by poor guides. In fact, one duck hunt "guide" dropped us off of his boat in a cold, rugged, wet, tundra and told us to walk toward the East (it was dark by the way) until we found a place to hunt. He took his boat and left as he had double booked hunts and said that he would pick us up at dusk. It was about 25 degrees that day with a 30 mile per hour sustained wind. We obviously did not tip this guy.
Then we found, Mr. Grady Jolley. Grady studies the game, researches the time periods for max hunting opportunity and he stays with you. Typically, when you arrive at a hunt guided by Grady, you will find the hunt site established with decoys, portable blinds, and his expert advice on what to expect and when. Grady will also assist you in calling birds. He has wonderful hunting retrievers as well. Also, Grady has helped me and my friends with ammunition advice, shooting tips, bird calling techniques and gun safety. At least three of the best hunts of my lifetime, were with Grady Jolley.
What else can I say, I highly recommend Old Dominion Outfitters! Good luck and happy hunting. "

I have hunted with Grady and Hanne many times over the years. You will not find two more sincere people at any lodge. They work hard to make your stay enjoyable and filled with memories. As soon as we arrived, we realized that we were in for a great hunt. The accommodations are second to none. Hanne and Grady are fun to be around and spend time with. They truly care about you and make the effort to create a wonderful experience. Expect to see many birds, eat great food, and to hear some good stories.
The guides were very accommodating and entertaining. The food was outstanding and the friendships gained will not be forgotten. The atmosphere is casual and the services are exceptional. I will definitely return in the future. If you want a place to relax, have fun and see hundreds of birds, this is the place to go. -- Brian , Virginia
I have hunted and fished with Grady and Hanne Jolley for over 20 years and can say, without any hesitation, that they are the best and most hard working partners one could ask for in the field, on the water, and at the end of a long day afield. The guiding, dog work, meals , accommodations, and friendship experienced with Grady and Hanne at Old Dominion Outfitters are truly world class. -- Sean, Virginia
What an incredible adventure we experienced on our South Dakota Pheasant hunt! Your gracious hospitality, the warm, comfortable accommodations, and bagging our game limit every day made our excursion the trip of a lifetime! My calendar is already booked for next years’ hunt. Can’t wait to enjoy another OD Outfitter experience! --Tim, Maryland
WOW, what a great trip. Lodging was very large, clean and with all the comforts of home. GREAT HUNTING, limited out every day and the guides hospitality was OVER THE TOP! We will definitely be back again and HIGHLY recommend OD Outfitters to anyone looking for an INCREDILE trip, THANKS for a great time. --Dan, Maryland
