We offer legendary deer hunting options, on a limited basis. Located in the midst of the prolific Missouri River breaks, we are able to offer habitat for large whitetail and monster mule deer bucks. We scout thousands of acres each year to assure you the best deer hunt possible. Our guided whitetail and mule deer hunts are offered in one of three seasons, and we have several options to hunt whitetail in South Dakota – West River, East River and Archery. We have scouted the areas and have set up tree stands and blinds, when advantageous, for rifle as well as archery hunters. And, when it comes to mule deer, we are bar-none, the best in the region, consistently harvesting trophy mule deer from the breaks and open grasslands along the Missouri River. There is nothing prettier (or tastier) then a prairie muley and the mule deer in our area are among the best in the state. This hunt requires a license to be drawn. Hunters will need to have 2 points to be successful in the draw.
