Autumn Antlers is pleased to announce its new ownership. As of July 2019, John Monson and Troy Hoekstra have purchased the hunting preserve and event center located in Long Prairie, Minnesota. The new owners plan to keep all current offerings, such as guided trophy hunts for whitetail deer, red stag, mouflon ram, elk, and fallow deer. They have now added trophy bison to their list of hunting experiences. 

“The opportunity to keep the Autumn Antlers legacy alive is a dream come true,” said Hoekstra, who is also a real estate developer in St. Cloud. 

“We are really excited about expanding what’s already at the lodge, and have plans to create more ways for people to enjoy the Autumn Antlers experience,” said Monson, who also owns Bill’s Gun Shop and Range in Hudson. 

Autumn Antlers was originally founded in 2006 and is located 130 miles northwest of Minneapolis. In addition to trophy hunting, the 10,000 square foot lodge can be rented out for corporate events and small weddings.
