High Prairie Lodge and Outfitters offers some of the finest Wild South Dakota Pheasant Hunts found in the country! Outfitter Dave Ciani has spent over 3 decades working on locking up high quality, pristine South Dakota prairie in several locations across the state to assure that all of his customers have an opportunity to experience a World Class All Wild Bird South Dakota Pheasant Hunt!

The first area Dave offers is located near Gettysburg, SD in the northern region of the state. This is a very unique location in that the properties have never been commercially hunted for pheasants before Dave took over them over 5 years ago.

On this hunt we DO NOT plant birds so every pheasant you flush is a true wild bird. This area is also unique in that the habitat is very traditional; cattail sloughs, CRP cover and Tree belts. Note: we do not hunt crop rows on this hunt it is all natural cover. On this hunt you can expect to see between 1,000 – 3,000 birds per day. This particular hunt is very conducive for pointing dogs. Feel free to bring and use your own dogs or hunt over our professionally trained pointers and flushers. We can also accommodate an spectacular waterfowl / upland combo hunt or a whitetail / upland combo in this area.

We can arrange hunt dates from the end of October through the first week in January. We can accommodate individual hunters as well as family groups and corporate outings (up to 20 hunters). During your hunt you will not be put in with another group unless arrangements for that have been made at the time of booking. On this hunt your accommodations will be very clean, comfortable cabin accommodations at a resort overlooking the Missouri river. Meal plans consist of steak, shrimp, walleye etc and are very tasty and filling. All of the small details will be accommodated for and we can customize any specific details that are important to you or your group. Please contact outfitter Dave Ciani at 605-578-1222 for more details or for open dates for the upcoming South Dakota Pheasant Hunting Season.

The second area we hunt is located near Whitelake, SD in the south central region of the state. Again this is also an All Wild Bird Hunt. The overall hunt as well as the cover we will be hunting is quite different from our above pheasant hunting region near Gettysburg. In this area you can expect to see the same number of birds and limits are the norm daily however this cover is much more conducive to flushing dogs and you can expect cattail sloughs, tree belts and switch grass as well as some agricultural crop rows. We also have the option of using our professionally trained pointers or flushers or you can use your own dogs and any group size can be accommodated for. We can also arrange for a phenomenal upland / waterfowl combo hunt in this region as well.

During your trip you will be staying a nice, comfortable motel in Mitchell, SD. The night life and area attractions in this area are a little more exciting. There is a Cabelas in town and many options for area restaurants for your dining pleasure. Hunting dates for this area are the same, running from the end of October to the first week in January.

Note: Due to the fact that we do not release birds in either of our areas, it is very important to us that we manage the properties properly to ensure a World Class hunting experience. We only hunt a specific area during a three day hunt and then rest it for 2 – 3 weeks before returning with another group. This also ensures that smaller groups hunting late season will have up close shots and the birds do not become “Unhuntable” by the end of the season. Please contact outfitter Dave Ciani for more details on either of our fantastic South Dakota Pheasant Hunts. References available upon request.
