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.

2014 Pheasant Hunt Begins

IMG_5213Our bird numbers are great!

We had a great day on the start of the 2014 season with old man Allan Brown and his grandson Collin Mcrory (pictured above).

Kyle and I got a chance to work the young dogs and puppiesKyle’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 right on the head with a running cripple!

Our bird numbers look great but a lot of the chicks are just starting to turn.

Please make sure if you have a hunt booked with us this fall that you have your deposit in to confirm your spot at Bad River Bucks & Birds.
