I would contact the Standing Rock Indian Officials first hand.

When I first moved to SD, I couldn't believe the number of tags left open on the reservations. After asking around, I found that often times, hunting on the rez can be more of a hassle than it's worth. I thought if you had a rez tag, you were free to hunt any of the tribal land, but that is not the case at all. The land is still owned by individuals, so you still have to aquire permission... which can be a very difficult thing to do.

Also, since they set their own game laws, I hear things can get a little hairy out there. In fact, according to my buddy who grew up right next to a reservation, one of the reservations had a big buck contest a few years back. The contest deadline for submitting your buck was March 1st! He said there were a lot of big bucks shot and left on the ground.

Who knows though, maybe a guy could go out and have a great hunting experience. I personally have not experienced it and maybe the things I have heard are completely false. I do know that there are a ton of rez tags left over each year... there has to be a reason for it!
