South Dakota Pheasant and Duck Hunt

Premier Pheasant Hunting in America

Located in the heart of some of the best pheasant hunting in the world, this hunt takes place over 25,000 acres of prime hunting habitat in South Dakota. Just a short drive south of Aberdeen, this is the pheasant hunt of a lifetime! And as an added bonus, we include duck hunting during non-pheasant hunting hours (duck tags are necessary, see below).

With highly trained guides and dogs, you will hunt some of the best fields, sloughs, tree lines and food plots in the USA. Staff is available at all times to make your South Dakota pheasant hunt experience as comfortable and memorable as possible. The cooking is homemade, and the people are friendly. It's guaranteed that you will leave with a cooler full of birds and wonderful memories.

With so many acres to hunt, you don’t have to worry whether you will hunt the same walk twice during your stay. Rest assured, you will not be hunting heavily pressured fields as the hunting land is very carefully managed. Day time temperatures this time of year can range greatly each day so it is important to bring the proper gear. Expect temperatures to vary from 10 degrees to 60 degrees during your stay.

I temporarily retired from kayak guiding on Lake Superior to join corporate America and pay the bills. Now that I can do both, I'd love to take newcomers and experienced paddlers alike out on the water, into the mountains, or wherever they're looking...
