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.

    • Google;   Sayyid Qutb  and you can then read and decide on your own where and how todays Islamic Fundamentalists originated.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
