Pheasant hunting for Bachelor Party? South Dakota?

10 posts in this topic

Hello I was thinking about doing a bach party for a friend where we all get together for a day or two of hunting in S. Dakota. We all are from North Iowa so this would just be a primer before the Iowa Pheasant hunt. Any recommendations for an all inclusive type place?

Thanks

Tony

Tony, the list in SD is endless, it really depends on what type of hunt you want and how much you want to spend. feel free to email me if you want. muc33@yahoo.com

A lot of those places are releasing birds so if it was me, I'd save the $100 for the license and find a gamefarm here in MN that has lodging.

If SD is going to be it however...all you have to do is a search on the web and you'll find all the information that you need.

This would definitely cost less and probably be more fun!

Yeah you could have a heck of a good time at any number of preserves with a much shorter drive.

I don't think I could ever ask anybody to spend that kind of dough on a bachelor party!!!!

Theres some nice places around Hoven, but anywhere up in that aberdeen area, or bit south is all good. I always drive back through Mitchell....birds know where their safe havens are though!!

Save money. Go to a game farm closer. Unless you plan on paying the 100 for the license and hunting public land (which is still a good option in SD) I wouldn't waste the money going to a expensive place in SD. There are several game farms in south central MN and you can make it a one day trip and purchase as many birds as you want. Don't even need to get your fingers dirty...

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
