Great fishing and pheasant hunting in South Dakota

In addition to pheasant hunting, there are plenty of outdoor activities at Elm Lake Lodge.  We don’t just limit the activities to pheasant hunting.  There are a number of opportunities for the person who loves who loves to hunt or fish.

Plenty of pheasants, geese, grouse and partridge for hunting:

We manage the hunting areas to maximize wild bird production and provide a sporting hunting challenge.  We offer wild bird hunting. You can expect ample opportunities to bag a limit of birds.  We specialize in pheasants, but we also have good numbers for sharp-tailed grouse hunting, goose hunting and a few partridge.  Bird processing and storage is available on site.

Deer Hunting

In addition to our abundant birds we offer a great hunting experience for deer hunters as well.  Whether you are hunting deer in North or South Dakota, there are abundant numbers of deer, and some even in the dream trophy class!
