Bad 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.
Trophy 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!
We had a great day on the start of the 2014 season withold man Allan Brown and his grandson Collin Mcrory (pictured above).
Kyle and I got a chance to work the young dogs and puppies. Kyle’s puppies worked the birds great and trailed our prairie runners(pheasant roosters) perfectly.Sage once again impressed me with a nice 250 yard mark and nailed it righton the head with a running cripple!
Our bird numbers look great but a lot of the chicks are just starting to turn.

Most of our prices are going to remain the same, except we are reintroducing Hungarian Partridge to the Upland Preserve Hunts in 2014 which will require us to slightly increase those hunting rates. This 3 day hunt, 4 night stay, all inclusive is now $2,095 per hunter and we will allow two partridge per day per hunter!
Another new feature in 2014 is our Gold Package. This 3 day, 4 night, all inclusive hunt will allow each hunter to shoot 8 pheasants per day from both our preserve and a large amount of wild birds for $2,695 per hunter.
We are very excited for this upcoming year and hope all of you check out our website and Facebook page to read all of our latest news, check out our updated gallery, and have viewed our videos!
