The Bad River Hunts Experience

Bad River Bucks & Birds LodgeBad River Bucks & Birds, LLC, located on a 100-year old family owned ranch in the rugged heart of South Dakota, is groomed for wildlife in its natural habitat.

Home to the best South Dakota pheasant hunting and some of the largest deer in the state, the ranch regularly plants both cover and food plots to attract a variety of upland game and deer as well as prairie dogs and other game. A portion of the land is designated as a hunting preserve, which allows for exclusive early and late season hunting.

Bad River Bucks & Birds Virtual TourTrophy sized whitetail and mule deer, as well as pronghorn antelope, are as common as the panoramic sunsets.

Here the hunter will find sanctuary. Whether quietly huddling in a blind among never-ending fields of reed canary grass, tracking through a foot of fresh snow on a silent morning or celebrating a successful hunt among friends at our amazing lodge…view our virtual tour!

If you’re looking for the best South Dakota white tail and mule deer hunting, look no further.
