South Dakota Pheasant Hunts

The Signature Lodge by Cheyenne Ridge Outfitters is the premier pheasant hunting operation in the country and was the first sporting venue to ever receive the prestigious Beretta Trident rating. Located in the heart of South Dakota pheasant country, the Signature Lodge is operated by High Adventure Company. The perfect mix of agriculture crops, native warm-season grass, and shelterbelts provide ideal habitat for one of the most popular game birds in the country, the ringneck pheasant.

SD Pheasant Hunting

Awaken to the sun shining brightly on iridescent cock pheasants feeding in the groomed food plots in front of the Lodge. Grab a cup of freshly made coffee and enjoy a country breakfast fit for king before meeting your guides and hunt manager for your daily safety meeting.

Walk outside to await your guides, dogs and field transportation. Take in the open skies, the endless horizon, and the beauty of the seemingly infinite rolling prairies and you’ll quickly understand what makes people come here from all over the world to pheasant hunt.

Your pheasant hunting experience starts the moment you gather your guns and gear from your private locker and head out on that first morning hunt. Our attentive staff will happily share their knowledge that comes with vast years of experience in this rich land. Accompanied by equally experienced and enthusiastic canines, they ensure that each guest will have the tools to bring back a limit. Unlimited ammunition, Beretta shotguns – in case you forgot yours – and a sky filled with pheasants make Cheyenne Ridge a hunt of a lifetime.
