About muddy creek

With rolling terrain and ample cover, you will enjoy the feel of a fair chase hunt and the chance to harvest a Trophy Deer that you will not see in any other place! The preserve has 4 spring-fed ponds, 2 spring-fed creeks, over 25 acres of food plots, and several mineral pits to ensure the healthiest deer herd possible.

Muddy Creek Whitetails and Gamebirds is owned by Andy and Katie Petesch.  They have both lived in Meriden, Kansas for their whole lives.  They started dating in high school and got married in 2002.  At that time, they started raising quail, pheasant, and chukars as a hobby.  Then decided after a few years to turn it into a business, and started Muddy Creek Game Birds.  They started leasing some ground for hunters, built a lodge, and started raising a lot more birds.  Katie and Andy have two daughters, Katelyn and Anna.  The girls are beginning to start helping on the farm, picking up eggs, signing in hunters, and setting birds. There is always something for them to do.
