    I have 4, possibly 6 that want to go on a ND or SD pheasant hunt in October..Mixed group, men and women. All shooters, but will be my first pheasant hunt. (we are all experienced hunters..Waterfowl, Deer, Upland, Turkey, etc) We'll be flying in from Massachusetts. We don't mind sharing lodging and would like meals and a guided hunt. Anyone have any lodges/guides you can suggest? Thanks!

    Try Don Reeves for a great place to hunt. 15,000 birds, no waiting!

    He's located West of Mitchell, SD, just north of White Lake, SD.

    Round a bout price for a hunt at one of these outfitters?

    I got the guns, I got the shells, I got the plane tickets.

    How much on average for the land/lodging/licences/guide service?

    How long are the hunts 3-days, 5-days???

    Would like to do it but dropping 1-2k on 3 ringnecks a day (9-15 pheasants) is steep for a po boy like me.

    Comps is $300/day and a license is a little over $100.

    You didn't mention dogs. Got your own? If you do you could try public land.

    Being an avid bird hunter, I had to hunt South Dakota. Being stuck in the middle of no-where, not hunting until noon, done by 1:00 or 2:00, expensive, & bored out of my mind. Drove into Huron, nothing to do there either. If you like to party hard, it may be the real deal. In the future, I'll just drive 15 minutes to a game farm, shoot 3 roosters, come home, with a lot more money.
