SD Turkeys

5 posts in this topic

We are looking at a SD Turkey hunt this spring and considering heading to the Pierre area due to its large concentration of public land in the Lake Oahe area. Anybody have some insight on this area? We are even open to suggestion of other areas in SD that may be a good option. The black hills was the first choice, but limited time is keeping us near the Missouri River.

Thanks in advance for any input!

Applications for Prairie Turkey are due Feb. 20. Still a little time to apply.

Black Hill tags are guaranteed. You still need to apply, (no deadline) but tag is guaranteed. The Black Hills tag is good for one bird. All other units are good for two.

I've done several hunts west of Mobridge on the Standing Rock indian reservation. There it is a draw but i've never not gotten a tag. There are a lot of turkeys up and down the the Missouri River. So I like it when everyone runs to the hills.

    • Well, he was close on that one, because it certainly wasn't a debate.
    • Uncanny resemblance...
    • I have been going to golden meadows lately to work my dog so far we have shot 24 birds over him. One more time at the preserve before the season starts and we are itching to get out in the real fields!  
    • Wow do the unicorns fly in your fantasy too?
    • Would you like me to put sugar in your medicine to make it taste better?
    • Unless: If no candidate wins an absolute majority in the Electoral College, the election is decided by the House of Representatives. Thus, if Johnson were to win, say, Colorado while Trump and Clinton split all other electoral votes 50-50, the House would pick the winner. Given that Trump and Clinton are the most unpopular candidates in recent history, a divided House might compromise by selecting Johnson, a former two-term (Republican) governor of New Mexico.
    • It's probably going to be late this year. I got my itch scratched at Traxlers reserve in LeCenter today at least so that helps but really for me the pheasant season doesn't get into high gear until after deer season. Normally the first few weeks are too warm to be out a whole day with the dogs and there are too many corn fields in. By the 3rd week in November the temps have dropped and the corn is mostly out and that's when it gets better and of course first snow...... I am fairly optimistic about the bird populations this year. Obviously the rain we had was a wildcard and it's hard to say right now how that has impacted populations but there was a good group of birds that carried over from last season and the winter didn't take too many.
