Briarwood Sporting Club is a very special place. I just love hunting there. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. The property is so beautiful and well designed. They continue to invest in enhancements to what is already an amazing facility. The quality of the deer is beyond belief. Briarwood is so much more than huge bucks. It’s the total experience of being in the field and sharing the love of hunting with likeminded sportsman. I just returned from my second visit with my son and we have already paid our deposits for a third visit. Many hunting outfitters will claim they provide the “opportunity of a lifetime” and they work hard for their clients. At Briarwood, it really is an experience of a lifetime. Our guides, Jeff and Dane, are true professionals and have become good friends. Thank you Chris and Kristy Daniels for your attention to detail and for creating such a remarkable place. My son and I will hunt Briarwood many times over. If you are considering Briarwood and need additional information or just have questions, please feel free to give me a call. I would love to field your questions and tell you more about Briarwood. My cell is 816-914-2124.read more

While hunting with us you will be staying in our beautiful Pine Lake Lodge. This lodge contains modern kitchen facilities, WiFi access, large flat screen television with DirecTV, pool table, and a massive stone fireplace. After your hunt kick back and enjoy the views on the large wrap around deck over looking our private lake. Included are all meals and beverages. If you have dietary restrictions let us know and our staff will ensure that your meals are prepared accordingly. 

Making travel as easy as possible

Briarwood Sporting Club goes beyond expectations in every aspect of your hunt, including pick up and drop off service at your local airport via private jet. The Briarwood experience is absent of long drives to the airport, checking in, security lines, flight delays, wondering if your gun will arrive with you, and paying for drinks. Your VIP hunt starts when you climb aboard our own corporate jet with Briarwood owner, Chris Daniels as your pilot. This will give you additional time to discuss the upcoming hunt and laugh about the memories just made on the flight home. We look forward to providing your private transportation, setting the tone for your entire three-day luxury hunt. When you are ready to head home, just let us know and we can be on our way within an hour.

Tom- 254- FL Briarwood Hunting Testimonial

“Being a native Midwesterner, I have always enjoyed being in the woods with Tall oaks and dark green pastures with an autumn leaves scent surrounding me. That has always felt like home. For 3 years running Briarwood has given me a beautiful reminder of what home is like in the fall, which I miss dearly now that I’m in Florida. The hunting experiences I’ve had with my family and friends for those 3 separate weeks are truly vivid in my mind. Each week had its own unique memories that I’ll be able to look back on with pride as I see my trophy whitetails in my man cave! The Daniels’ family has done a fabulous job custom tailoring each hunter/fisherman’s options to best suit them. Never before have I seen such hospitality and attention to detail on such a unique property. I highly recommend this trip to anyone that’s looking to make memories, have fun and learn what it is to hunt world class whitetails and fly fish on beautiful streams.

A hunt at Briarwood offers the opportunity to harvest some of the largest Whitetail deer in North America. Experienced guides provide one-on-one advice and tailor the hunt to each individual.

We are far more concerned with providing quality hunts than massing a quantity of hunters, so availability is limited!

From the Owner…

“What separates Briarwood is our attention to detail and the relationships we have with our hunters.  Our goal is for a hunter to arrive as a client and leave as a friend. How do we make that happen?  Details.  The little things.  From the point of booking we respond promptly to hunter calls and emails, to the follow up on the back end to ensure that your trophy and meat have been received. Experienced guides, delicious food, beautiful accommodations, and regular interactions with Chris and myself all play a huge role in our operation.  We are here daily making sure every detail is in place and our clients have a fantastic experience. Providing an elite experience, Briarwood offers pick/drop off service at your local airport and on your schedule via private jet. We take great pride in the Briarwood experience and want each person who visits to know that Chris and I are available at all times.”

-Kristy Daniels, Owner
