Pheasant Hunting, Reimagined!

Call it an American pastime or just a family tradition, pheasant hunting renews and strengthens its roots each fall. Individuals and families set their foot on the lands of South Dakota to hunt down the ring-necked pheasants while enjoying fall fields with loved ones.

Uniquely beautiful, the wily roosters found in South Dakota are the master of elusive tactics, giving hunters and their canine partners a tough time when they go hunting.

Most of the time, even the cleverest of pheasants succumb to the hunters’ preparation. Late-season toughness, enables them to have a taste of success at hunting pheasants for which they primarily flock to South Dakota with their friends, families, or alone.

An eventful and memorable pheasant hunting experience begins with choosing the right land and habitat.

Buying the Ranch

In the late 20’s our father and his family moved to this area – purchased a part of the place in the early 30’s – lost it to taxes in the mid 30’s and our father started buying it back in the late 30’s. Since then, the following pieces have been added; Minnie Nelson ranch, Gould pasture, Nye pasture, Curtis place and the Graf Ranch
