Ethan Scores

Man, the past week has been crazy with bucks chasing does and now with bucks being locked down with does. I can't wait til next weekend. Ethan hammered this perfect 8 pointer on Saturday night while hunting a stand with my dad. I actually spotted the buck from my stand location and called them. He moved back to a thick area with the doe he was with and Ethan found a shoooting lane and put the hammer to him.

Rut in Full Swing........

Well, after a rough opening two months of the season, this week has been a little wild. The rut is definitely in full swing. I've seen some really good bucks checking does and tonight, I saw the first doe actually in heat. A big 9 pointer was chasing her but luck was not on our side as my son could never get a good shot. It's a little frustrating watching a buck chase for two solid hours and not getting a shot. Tomorrow night, here we come!

Cheyenne Signature Lodge

Premier Pheasant Hunting in South Dakota

As the prairie grasses crunch beneath your boots and the crisp, morning air meets your face, it is great to know you're experiencing South Dakota pheasant hunting at its finest. Among these meadows, cornfields, river bluffs, creek bottoms and rolling hillsides, you'll find North America's largest population of Chinese Ring-necked Pheasant.

Sought for its phenomenal upland bird hunting, extended season, diverse habitat and all-inclusive hunting packages, Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge is the first sporting venue to ever receive a Beretta Trident rating. The family-owned lodge provides a setting for field sports that makes pheasant hunting in South Dakota especially rewarding. When considering South Dakota hunting lodges, hunters prefer Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge for numerous reasons, including its 33 guest rooms and suites. Comfortably appointed, each is designed for single occupancy and has a private bath.

The season lasts seven months, from early September through the end of March, with hunters enjoying up to a 20-bird daily limit. Accompanied by professional hunting guides and highly trained flushing dogs that truly understand South Dakota pheasant hunting, guests can look forward to an all-inclusive hunt that is as productive as it is aesthetically pleasing, one that captures the spirit of South Dakota in the 1940's, 50's and 60's. The new standard that honors South Dakota's storied pheasant hunting traditions, Cheyenne Ridge Signature Lodge awaits your arrival.

Finally Fired Up

OK, the rut is coming and I'm finally fired up. Can't wait to get out tonight after watching my daughter dominate her cheerleading competition this morning. Let's go hunting!
