SD WHITETAIL HUNTING
Sept 1 - Dec 31st
September 6th through – November 22nd
All of our South Dakota whitetail hunts are done under the rules of fair chase as there are no high fences. Our “All-Inclusive” whitetail hunts were created for the sole purpose of providing the hunter with a high quality hunting experience. All of the guides are archery hunters and know the habits and patterns of the deer and know what it takes to get you close enough for that shot of a lifetime.
Season: Our archery season typically runs from the last weekend in September through the third weekend in November with the rut starting around the end of October.
License: The license is a lottery draw, but as a non-resident, you are guaranteed to receive the license if you apply. The cost of the license is $285 for the upcoming season. Licenses can be applied for at the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks website.
