“For the new year of 2020, the Haines family is looking to build upon the foundations of a long-time Gregory business. In July 2019, Eddie and Alice Shaffer offered their hunting business, Cocks Unlimited, for sale. Cocks Unlimited, a well-established and long-standing business in the Gregory community, has been a staple of Highway 18 since 1981 as Eddie, Alice, and their family have accommodated hunters and guests in the Gray House Inn.
New owners Kurt and Kellie (Haines) Stukel, Wade and Heather (Haines) Blomgren, Aaron and Hilary (Haines) Veskrna, and Bennett and Heather (Lahammer) Haines are looking forward to building on the success of Cocks Unlimited by also offering additional amenities under the umbrella company, West River Haven.
West River Haven’s new owners will continue to offer the very best pheasant hunting experience in the most breathtakingly beautiful landscape in South Dakota., “God’s Country,” just across the Missouri into West River. The new business owners plan to not only continue the service and quality Alice, Eddie and family have established with Cocks Unlimited Pheasant Hunting but to offer corporate retreats, business outings, guided fishing charters, prairie dog hunting, and long rage shooting.
The lodge at the Gray House Inn will provide accommodations for groups up to 18 and serve as an exceptional venue for weddings, reunions, or corporate gatherings.
West River Haven looks forward to providing actions filled hunting, comfortable lodging, and a memorable experience that will be shared with family and friends as truly, “the experience of a lifetime.”
If an unruly passion for the outdoors calls, come West River and experience The Haven. #WestRiverHaven”
