Who We Are | A South Dakota Pheasant Hunting Lodge
The mission of The Orchard Lodge is to deliver you a world class executive experience at your pace. We provide you an exclusive setting with first-class service and exceptional hunting. We pride ourselves in removing uncertainties, doubts, and worries so you can relax and appreciate the time, the company, and the conversations with your group.
My name is Lt Col (ret.) Jeff "Chunks" Verville and I am the Owner of The
Orchard Lodge in Gregory, South Dakota. I am a USAF fighter pilot, a veteran, and a Southwest Airlines pilot. I purchased The Orchard Lodge in 1999 and started my hunting service a few years later. I have always loved the outdoors and pheasant hunting in South Dakota is as thrilling as flying F-15s (maybe not quite), however, it is another mission I am very passionate about. I am honored to have married the former Sarah Johnson of Gregory, SD following my graduation from the USAF Academy in 1988 and we are blessed with four children. It was during this time that I also fell in love with South Dakota. The people are wonderful, the habitat is unequaled, and the pheasants are abundant.
The Orchard Lodge was built in 1902. It is a 4500 square foot Victorian estate home which has a unique history. It is capable of accommodating twenty guests. The kitchen, living room, dining room, parlor, recreation room, two porches, six bedrooms, and five bathrooms form a spacious living area that is easy to spread-out and relax in. The Orchard Lodge will simply become your home away from home. It is the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the conversations, the company, and the time with your group. In addition, your home-cooked meals will be prepared by my staff on site. The menu includes hearty breakfasts followed by soups, chili’s, and sandwiches for lunch, then steaks, tenderloins, or pheasant for dinner. We also provide daily hors d’oeuvres and refreshments every evening.
In addition to our world-class pheasant hunting, the Gregory golf course is in our backyard, and if you want to experience some small town nightlife, the local businesses are close by and cater to our pheasant hunters.
Feel free to contact me if you would like more information or just want to ask questions.
