"With favorable weather conditions this past winter and spring, along with the availability of quality nesting habitat across the state,
we are going to see an increase in this year's pheasant population," stated Jeff Vonk, GFP Secretary.
"Survey results show pheasant numbers rebounded the strongest in central South Dakota; especially in the Pierre areas.
Results also indicate that pheasant numbers are substantially higher than 2013 throughout much of eastern South Dakota."


As we want you to enjoy hunting exclusively with your friends, we prefer groups of 8-12 people; however, other sized groups welcome. Our rates are less then others. We charge per gun per day. You may stay as long as you wish, and hunt as much as you want. If you have a camper or trailer, there are RV Parking and camping facilities also located in Pierre . Ask about non shooting guests.
