The state of pheasant hunting. What more can be said about the endless opportunities given to our upland hunters? South Dakota has always been home to some great wing shooting. Rock Road Outfitters is a special place for groups looking to see a variety of different landscapes and hunting conditions. We take less than 10 groups of hunters per year on our properties to show our clients what real pheasant hunting can be like out here.

BIRD NUMBERS BASED ON THE TIME OF YEAR Early in the season birds are easy to find and are generally fairly easy to get up but as the season progresses birds will become educated and try to bust from cover before the hunters get into position. Hunters will find mostly pheasants on our properties along with sharptail grouse, Hungarian partridge and possibly a prairie chicken. Please get familiar with bag limits and species identification before you come out.

Deposit 80% refundable 1 year prior to hunt date. 40% refundable 6 months prior to hunt date. No refunds under 6 months of the hunt date.
Hunters can expect the weather to be in the 50’s to 70’s early in the season with the possibility of snow into November. We had a few weekends last season when it turned into blizzard conditions but most of the time the daytime temps will be in the 30’s to 40’s. Our hunting style may vary depending on the size of the group but a hunter can expect to spend most of the day walking and occasionally posting at the end of a field. Our guides will work their tails off to assure you will be in a target rich environment. Hunters can expect to see an abundance of wildlife regardless of what we are hunting.

If bring your own hunting dog, please remember to try and get your dogs in shape before they come out. Dogs that aren’t used to seeing an abundance of birds may have a hard time staying under control in those situations. It is also important to make sure we have plenty of water on hand during the hunt especially early in the season. We do have kennels on some of our properties but travel kennels will be needed in most cases.
