South Dakota Pheasant Hunts

2020 Pheasant Hunting Season in South Dakota

Pheasant hunting Ranch in South Dakota located in the Pheasant Capital of the World, Redfield, South Dakota! The first successful introduction of Chinese Ringneck Pheasants into the wild, took place in 1908 about 2 miles west of Jim River Ranch! Followed by the first State Pheasant hunting season in 1919! For several generations now, the Wright family has dedicated themselves to the conservation and preservation of our land, for future generations.

One of my most heartfelt and heartwarming statements is, “My Grandfather hunted this land before me, and my sons’, son’s will hunt it long after I am gone!” It is our extreme pleasure to have the opportunity to share our little part of this world, with others who feel the same way about the outdoors as we do! Please review our Pheasant Hunting Packages and Prices, and let us know if you need us to custom a hunt, just for you, your family and friends. Being a comparatively small lodge, offering what we feel are the best resources available in South Dakota for pheasant hunting, we can offer exclusive use of everything we do, to groups as small as 7 guests! No sharing anything, with anyone, that you don’t invite to come with you!
