LIMITED HUNTS PER PROPERTY

We only allow a maximum of two hunts and a maximum of two hunters on each property. This keeps the deer at ease, more predictable and greatly increases the odds of you having plenty of mature bucks to consider harvesting.

Check out some of our trophy whitetail hunts. With Dakota Pheasant Guide you're sure to have a whitetail deer hunt like no other.

South Dakota Deer Hunt

IMPROVE YOUR SUCCESS WITH A FULLY GUIDED HUNT


The fully guided packages feature seasoned and knowledgeable guides. Each guide is a proven hard-core hunter and has a vast amount of knowledge on the land as they literally live on and/or own the properties. Thus, giving you the kind of boots-on-the-ground intel that only they can. This experience is invaluable and simply cannot be gained no matter how many game cam or satellite images you choose to review. Tips are not required. But, our guides do greatly appreciate them if their hard work, advice and instruction put you into favorable shooting situations in which to bag your trophy whitetail buck.


OUR DIVERSE, PRIME WHITETAIL HUNTING LAND

Our whitetail hunts are as varied as the land itself.  Due to the influence of agricultural, the deer are all full bodied and vibrant. Particularly so in late season as our hunts run right up till the last day of the year. All of our properties are very limited as to number of hunts. We have the luxury of having thousands upon thousands of acres in which to spread out our guests each season. This allows us to strictly adhere to an extremely low-pressure policy for the deer that call our land home.

FOR THE AVID SPORTSMAN

WILD PHEASANT HUNTS

Experience classic South Dakota wild pheasant hunting at its finest. We are not a pheasant preserve, instead we manage our habitat properly so there are plenty of wild birds and the opportunity to limit out each day.

PREDATOR HUNTING

Predator hunting is free and highly encouraged as part of our booked hunts. We have an overabundance and your help in eliminating them is highly appreciated. We can point out prime locations in which to call as time permits while you are here. You can also take predators while in the field with your shotgun, provided the animal is well in the open and there are no dogs within sight. Stand alone predator hunts can be arranged for the “off season” as well. Please call for details.

SOUTH DAKOTA FISHING

Whether your interest is Walleye, Perch, Bass, Northerns or anything else, we can create a South Dakota fishing package for a trip of a lifetime. With Dennis you’ll have access to top-of-the-line equipment as well.
