CELEBRATING 100  SEASONS OF SOUTH DAKOTA PHEASANT HUNTS


On October 30th, 1919, the first pheasant hunt took place in Spink County and within fifteen years, pheasant hunts were held in every county across the state. It all got started with the first release of birds in 1908, and if you’d like to hunt right on and near the very land where it all started, we can make it happen for you. Take part of a rich South Dakotan tradition that is alive and continues to thrive today. If you want the absolute best authentic pheasant hunt, come on out and see us here in the heart of South Dakota to start your own tradition, it will be a hunting trip you will never forget. We pride ourselves in making memories!
