Getting his start in 1979, it was apparent that Steve Grossman had found his life's work, his heritage. He began in 1979 managing Dakota Hunt Club in Grand Forks, ND. It was here where dog training skills took root, working with drug and bomb dog handlers from the Grand Forks Air Base to gain obedience training, from there it was honed by hunting and working dogs first hand, for upland waterfowl.
In 1984 Steve began Little Moran Hunt Club, LLC. on his family farm near Staples, Minnesota, which was homesteaded by his great grandfather in 1902. It began as a pheasant club and dog training kennel. Burnt Creek Setters became part of the Little Moran legacy in 1985, where Steve became trainer for Burnt Creek while working out of Little Moran. The setters did a great job on native ruffed grouse and woodcock, of which Steve began guiding a few of the hunt club members with great success.
It was from that point on, in 1987, that the ruffed grouse and woodcock hunts would become the corner stone of Little Moran and the addition of Double Gun Bird Hunts. The Double Gun Birds Hunts is a portion of Little Moran which is devoted to only wild bird hunting and endorsements with Orvis.
Steve's reputation for providing classic hunts where dog work and a time-honored dedication of the hunts have become Steve's marquis. This respect and admiration for the game and dogs are first and foremost. Hospitality and service are equally important to Steve and the entire guide staff at both lodges. These hunts are truly in a class by themselves.
Over the years, Steve has come to truly appreciate the beauty of nature and all that it offers. He has captured many special moments through the years, of the dogs in the field, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and the many aspects of nature, from wild horses, woodcock, to rainbows.
