that's gonna be tough unless you bring your check book and are lucky enough to draw a non res tag. There is no such thing as a "ranch tag". There are 1000's of "walk-in" acres in west river.

You might want to check with some of the reservations. I was at one south of Pierre and I think they may have had some hunts for sale. 40 acres, a fence and probably a guide or two.

Ya I was looking for a place to stay with lots of land where I have to go out by myself and do it myself. I don't want a guide that has every nook and cranny of the place memorized

You should check out the Indian reservations, they have their own tags that you can apply for along with the state tag. Then you have an opportunity for 2 deer. The reserve tag is only good on Indian land and they lots of land that you can access without any problems.

We went out there 2 years ago and going again this fall, stay away from guides and outfitters unless ya wanna pay thru the nose.

Go out early knock on some doors and shake some hands, check out state and county land. Talk to the local CO. We had access to several thousand acres and filled all our tags.

We paid an access fee for bucks that was very reasonable.

In many areas slick heads are only nuisnaces and they want them taken out no matter what.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
