I have not, that is why I want to talk with the booking guy. Bird numbers were down all over SD the last two years due to drought and cutting of CRP. Places with habitat will be the first to rebound, and weather has been better the past year. He has good reviews and been a long time poster on the Ultimate Pheasant forum. He has 11 camps, this is just one of them (many are already booked), all owned by the farmers who live and will show us around the property. There is also a link showing what each camp killed by week Kills last year
This place did ok, but not great. I have hunted wild birds before, they are not easy to kill and get smart very quick. It was a tier 4 camp and moved up to a tier 3 so I want to know why and what improvements were done. The county is traditionally kills very good numbers of birds... Availability of all camps Video of a hunt on this property. Recent roadside report
My family and I drove into Aberdeen last night at around 8pm. We saw a lot of pheasants along the way on Hwy 12 eastbound into Aberdeen. I finally started counting from Mina to Aberdeen. From Mina to where the road splits to 4 lane (around 7 miles) and we counted 29 roosters and tons of hens. Hopefully that equates to good hunting this fall!
