Guided Prairie Chicken Hunts

Prairie Chickens are considered one of the only true trophy upland birds left in the world, and SD's population is the highest.This is a once in a lifetime bucket list hunt, that most upland hunters have never had the opportunity to see done correctly.

We have exclusively secured 15,000 acres of prime midwest prairie land. As a company, our main focus is to limit out on prairie chickens. You even have the opportunity to hunt a small mix of sharptail grouse.

What to Expect

Timing is key to hunting the "king of the prairie". The birds group into packs of 50-150 which enables them to scout for predators on the vast prairie. Using their defense to our advantage, our experienced team works extensively watching and scouting the birds to ensure that your hunt is successful. We will get you close enough for shots of 45-75 yard range.

The hunt is walking style, over pointing dogs, kept in close range to not bump the birds. Because they are so fast, this makes them the most challenging bird to hunt.
