South Dakota Pheasant Hunting
It keeps getting better and better! The hunting was absolutely awesome this year and we are sure that our members will have an excellent experience again this season. If you are wanting to experience some of the best South Dakota has to offer, book now and do not wait as many dates are already reserved with repeat clientele.
The South Dakota Pheasant hunting trip is for five days, four nights with three full days of shooting. The trip will originate when you arrive in Pierre, South Dakota where our guides will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your lodge. The drive is about 40 minutes to the lodge. The first day is spent getting settled in and maybe a little sporting clay shooting to get the edge off. The following three days will be full days of shooting with a daily 5 bird per person bag limit of pheasants included in the package and extra birds are available on the preserve land for an additional per bird cost.
As you know all great pheasant hunting begins with great habitat and Tumbleweed lodge is proud to offer 12,000 plus acres of a unique mix of wildlife habitat that everyone is sure to enjoy. During the off season they have an agricultural air spraying company as well as own or farm most of the land that you will hunt with the pheasant hunting in mind, guaranteeing that they always have the best food plots and shelter belts for hunting.
They have huge fields of switchgrass and CRP grasses interspersed with food plots of Corn, Milo, or Sudan grass all strategically located near our ever-growing number of shelter beds managed to hold incredible numbers of birds throughout the coldest parts of winter.
Don, Michael and the rest of the Bollweg family own and personally oversee all aspects of their operations so from the welcome safety speech on you see why we consider Tumbleweed Lodge one the very best shooting experiences available in the United States. Tumbleweed lodge is a beautiful lodge accepting individual groups from 1 to 24 clients. They have some of the best guides available and with plenty of land and transportation available, do not worry about being crowded in the fields.
After a long day in the field relax in their spa which includes a sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. Tumbleweed’s biggest draw is that they offer sharp-tail grouse and prairie chicken hunting, plus sporting clay shooting at their 50 target range at no additional charge! Most of the pheasant shooting will be using the typical “walker blocker” method complete with well trained flushing dogs. Again, from the moment you are met in the Pierre airport you will see why Tumbleweed Lodge has quickly became one of our favorite destinations.
For those who follow our field journals through the year, you know that May ushers in our various dove Bolivia programs as well as the mixed bag programs in Argentina and Uruguay, in addition to the Pigeon program in Paraguay. So, quite a bit on our collective plates here...
