Antelope Hunting: is one of our favorite hunts and is something every big game enthusiast should experience. From the wide-open grasslands they call home to their unique defense mechanisms, antelope present hunters with an appealing set of challenges seldom seen with other big game species. This is also a great hunt for kids because of the large numbers of antelope that we will see in a day. No slow times and if you stop to glass you will probably be able to see antelope somewhere!
Freely roaming herds of 20-100 antelope constantly catch your eye along the hillsides of over 40,000 plus acresof private and leased land. We look over one herd and if you don't find what you like, we move over the hill and glass the next herd. Distance is deceiving and some shots can really test your skill, but there will be a shot opportunity and most times we can eventually get stalked within 200 yards for a clean shot. Previously harvested bucks have averaged 14 1/2" to bucks into the 17 " range and a scoring average of 72".
With our large number of antelope, we've begun archery antelope hunting (this is a guaranteed license). We set up blinds near water tanks or antelope crossings and simply wait for them. We also do spot and stalk and decoy archery hunts, so it depends on the desire of each individual hunter as to which method we use. Although archery antelope hunting is challenging, depending on the hunter the success can be very rewarding. The archery season begins around the 3rd weekend of August.
From getting out in the field and locating bucks, to closing the deal, South Dakota antelope hunting is an experience unto itself. If you've never tried it before, its time you started planning your own Antelope Hunting Adventure.
American Bison: hunts are offered at certain times of the year and are hunted throughout the rolling hills of South Dakota. The buffalo range from mature cows, 2-4 year old bulls, and 5 year old + trophy bulls that are wild. A guide will drive you out to the herds that are roaming in 2000 plus acres and you will harvest the buffalo of your choice. The bison you are looking for will be spotted and be stalked within a 125 yards or less.
We also offer an exciting archery hunts for these majestic animals. Slowly stalking and harvesting an animal in this native tradition is sure to get your blood pumping!
Some of our other hunts make a great combination including pheasant, prairie chicken and coyote.
Turkey Hunting: Every year as spring returns it brings the heart racing sound of an Old Tom strutting and gobbling. When you hunt with us, you could see 25 or more different strutting gobblers in one day. You will be hunting over 50,000 plus acres of private and leased ground and hunting only the best creek bottoms and fields with an unbelievable number of turkeys.

Predator Hunting: Imagine, calling in a coyote from up to a mile out. Watching him come in the whole way until he is within 50 yards or less, hair bristling, looking for dinner...It's the rush of a lifetime!
There are several ways to hunt coyotes, but the one most preferred is calling them in. Our guides have several years of calling under their belts, and they are prepared to bring the coyote’s right in to you. Whether it is fall or winter, we have techniques designed for the condition.
South Dakota Coyote hunts are conducted during their prime seasons, from November 1 until March 31.
Praire Dog Hunting: South Dakota prairie dog hunting is legendary. I have heard reports stating that South Dakota has more prairie dogs than the rest of the country combined. To Prairie Dog Hunters, that means an awful lot of long range target shooting!
Prairie dogs offer sportsmen countless hours of entertainment. This is a great opportunity to practice target shooting, relieve some stress, or just burn through a few hundred rounds of ammo in the off season. We can set up within 200 yards of prairie dog towns or set up out past 500 yards for a real long range challenge. You can expect shots of less than 100 yards to as far as you can see. Prairie dogs are small targets that will stand still, often times give you a few chances, and seem to replenish themselves as the day goes on.
Portable shooting benches, sandbags, and guide are provided--along with daily refreshments in the cooler. Our season runs May 20 thru the Summer. This is the optimum time for maximum shooting, and also the best weather wise. Days are usually 70-90 degrees this time of year and occasionally a thunder storm in the afternoon.
