South Dakota Bowhunting

South Dakota offers world-class bowhunting for whitetail deer, mule deer, and Merriam turkey. We offer archery hunts on both private land and tribal lands. Below is some information on each of our bowhunting trips.

SD Archery Deer (Whitetail and Mule Deer)

The 2011 South Dakota archery deer season opens September 24th and runs until December 31st. But, the best time to hunt deer in SD is the first couple of weeks in November. With the rut in full swing, bucks chasing does, and all-day heart-pounding action, early November is a magical time in the woods. The corn harvest should be early this year, so the middle and end of October will be good as well.

We have plenty of tree stands and blinds that will be ready for your arrival. You will not have to hunt the same stand (unless you want to) and none of our locations will be over-hunted. Required gear includes your bow and equipment, your preferred safety harness, flashlight, and some blaze orange if hunting in November.

SD Archery Turkey

The Merriam turkey is probably the funnest sub-species to hunt. They are very vocal and are rarely call-shy. Bowhunting these birds only adds to the excitement. Our ground is full of white-tipped Merriams and have no shortage of places to hunt them. You can hunt on state or tribal land. This makes it possible for you to harvest more than one turkey on your hunt (tribal tags are for 2 birds, while state is just 1).
