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.

    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker. 
    • What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig.
