South Dakota provides some of the best whitetail deer hunting, pheasant, mule deer hunting, and grouse hunting in the country. We have several large tracts of land that we have sought out in our part of the state which have allowed us to have an impact on the management of native wildlife to ensure you have the best hunt possible. South Dakota has little public hunting ground and it can be hard for a non-resident to gain access to the "good" ground. We have taken care of that for you. If you have always dreamed of having a place to yourself, your dreams have come true.

South Dakota Hunting Outfitters and Guides Pheasant Facts

South Dakota’s annual pheasant brood count indicated an 18 percent increase to the state’s pheasant population, according to the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks. Last year, South Dakota pheasant hunters were able to put 1.55 million roosters in their game bags, once again tops in the nation. Although pheasant are found statewide, the main pheasant range encompasses the eastern two-thirds of the state. Pheasant prefer agricultural fields, wooded draws, tree strips, wetlands and set-aside acres. Most of South Dakota is privately owned and permission is required to hunt, but public lands such as Game Production Areas and Walk-In Areas offer choice habitat for pheasant. Early in the season, pheasant are scattered in small flocks, but winter’s fury pushes birds into heavy cover and concentrates them. Tree strips, cattail sloughs and dense weed patches hold pheasant at this time of year. The Chinese Ring-necked Pheasant may be the official state bird of South Dakota, but it’s not native to South Dakota or the United States. The ring-necked pheasant species is indigenous to Asia, but was introduced into the pacific northwest of the United States in the late 1800s. The pheasant was successfully introduced into South Dakota in 1908, when a group of farmers purchased a pair of birds from an Oregon farm and released them into a field near Redfield. The hearty pheasant not only survived, but thrived on the prairie, prompting the state to purchase and release 48 additional pairs of birds. In 1919, the pheasant population was high enough for the state to hold a one-day pheasant hunting season. With 700,000 acres of public hunting land within the heart of SD’s pheasant range, opportunities again exist for quality pheasant hunting. As enrollment for the James River Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program has now reached 70,000 acres – all enrollment done by Pheasants Forever South Dakota Farm Bill Wildlife Biologists - hunters will find additional CRP lands available for public hunting this fall in east-central SD.

 


South Dakota Hunting Outfitters and Guides Deer Facts

South Dakota is host to both Whitetail and Mule Deer, with Mule deer inhabiting mostly the central and western regions of the state and Whitetails abundant throughout. Residents and nonresidents are eligible to apply for all deer seasons except Custer State Park and East River Deer. Nonresidents may apply for an East River Deer license if there are leftovers available after the drawing. The white-tailed deer is a large animal, which varies quite a bit in size, depending on the particular subspecies and the region where it is found. The adult whitetail deer's weight averages from about 70 to 250 pounds. Mature males are generally larger than females. The whitetail deer is an ungulate, or hoofed animal, with each foot ending in a cloven or two-piece hoof. The under parts of the deer's body are white with a white patch on the throat and another smaller band of white around the nose. The underside of the tail is also white. The upper body parts are colored reddish brown during the warmer months but in the fall, whitetail deer molt into their winter coats of dark, grayish brown. For several months of the year, male whitetail deer known as bucks are easily recognized by the presence of antlers on their head, which females, known as does, lack. Once in a great while female deer (doe) will also have antlers. South Dakota deer hunters have access to nearly 5 million acres of public land.  Deer Firearm season is traditionally in November in South Dakota. Archery, deer hunting season runs October through December. Refer to the Hunting Handbook from the South Dakota Department Of Fish and Game for detailed South Dakota deer hunting unit and season information.  According to the South Dakota Visitors Guide the South Dakota deer herd is approximately 75 percent whitetail and 25 percent mule deer, with success averaging 30 percent for the buck-only hunt.  When hunting deer in South Dakota Prepare for the weather. plan for fast-changing mountain weather patterns. Sunny, warm days can be replaced quickly by raging snowstorms.


South Dakota Hunting Outfitters and Guides Turkey Facts

South Dakota offers a spring and fall turkey hunting season to both residents and nonresidents. Wild turkey are native to the large wooded drainages of eastern South Dakota including the Missouri, lower James, and Big Sioux Rivers. Turkey have been successfully introduced into many other areas of the northeast and western portions of the state including the Black Hills. As with other resident wildlife species wild turkeys need a variety of habitat types to reproduce and maintain or expand their populations. All turkey populations in South Dakota are dependent on some form of woodland vegetation, weather it be shelterbelts and wooded river bottoms in the east or ponderosa pine forests and deciduous woody draws West River. The spring turkey season application process opens in mid January with a late February deadline. The tradition start for the turkey season is the second Saturday in April, running through the third Sunday in May. It includes a prairie firearms season, archery season, Black Hills season, and Custer State Park season. You have an opportunity to introduce youth to turkey hunting through the Mentored Hunting Season. Please consider passing along this great tradition to a new generation of hunters. Turkey populations in some areas, such as the northern and central Black Hills, are beginning to rebound, while areas in the southern Black Hills appear to be slower to recover. Hunters should see average turkey numbers in the Black Hills this spring. In the eastern part of the state, Eastern wild turkeys continue to do well, and there are good hunting populations in many areas in eastern South Dakota. The northeast corner of the state continues to have abundant birds and hunting opportunities in the spring season.
Low-lying areas along the James River and its tributaries, in eastern South Dakota, experienced persistent high water this past spring and summer, and hunters may encounter lower than expected turkey numbers there.
