Guided Duck & Goose Hunts

According to the South Dakota Game Fish and Park website, eastern South Dakota is located within the important waterfowl breeding grounds known as the "Prairie Pothole" region. The area was scarred by glaciers at the end of the last ice age resulting in landscape dotted with lakes, wetlands and streams where ducks abound.

Fortunately, we  have access to 10,000 acres of land (and water) along the Missouri River Valley. This major US flyway will chart the path for millions of migratory birds.

What to Expect

We are suited for all habitats and all of the weather conditions that allow for prime waterfowl hunting. We utilize mobile A-frame blinds in cornfields for our field hunts.

No matter the weather or habitat condition, we have the vehicle to position you in water, mud, field, or the heated comfort of a sunken pit. Our fully-enclosed, heated amphibious unit is perfect for getting through the muddy spots to hunt flooded corn and puddle ponds in cattail sloughs.

Our 25' mobile pontoon blind provides as much coverage and camouflage as our sunken 6-person Kohler pit blinds, but gets further into the action by actually being on the water.

Above and beyond what I expected. I've hunted and fished with numerous outfitters and this was beyond the most impressive. The accommodations are top notch. Comfortable rooms, outstanding food, and lodge is something everyone needs to see. The guides and properties that SDOU have are some of the finest in South Dakota. We hunted ducks and pheasants for 3 days. We experienced some of the finest hunting to date. I can't say enough about Joel's enthusiasm and passion for the sport. It also comes through from his guides as well. We booked through the Great Outdoor Show in Harrisburg. From the time we booked in February Joel was always available to answer all questions. This is a family owned business with Joel's and Amanda's presence daily at the lodge. The staff that prepared the food and does the housekeeping were pleasant and professional. If anyone is looking for an outfitter for South Dakota hunting and fishing look no further than South Dakota Outfitters Unlimited. We are already planning our spring fishing trip

This is the second Year I have hunted pheasant with Joel and Amanda at Missouri River Lodge and it has been outstanding both times. They have great facilities, food, equipment, and hunting grounds. I especially like the fact that each group has its own guide and transportation, so you determine the size of your group.
