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.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
