Nestled within the vast South Dakota grasslands, overlooking the majestic Missouri River, Thunderstik Lodge is South Dakota's premier pheasant hunt. Since 1988, our professional staff have been tending to hunter's every need and creating the perfect hunting experience. Our hunting lodge has a unique setting and exceptional staff that have built relationships with hunters from around the globe. We are proud and grateful to have one of the highest return rates in the industry. We offer all inclusive pheasant hunting packages, perfect for corporate hunts or smaller groups. Thunderstik is South Dakota's premier pheasant hunting lodge!
Many of our guests have been coming to the lodge for over 20 years and some enjoy spending time with fellow hunters from around the country as much as the hunt itself.
The Lodge is only 7 miles off of Interstate 90 at Chamberlain, South Dakota and round trip transportation is provided from the Sioux Falls airport. Thunderstik Lodge offers the best pheasant hunting experience for the selective sportsman. From premier pheasant hunts to luxury accommodations and superb meals - it's a hunting experience to remember. All our hunting packages are all inclusive, allowing you take advantage of all the luxurious amenities we offer.
At Thunderstik Lodge, we tend to the little things that make a good experience great. Small gestures like saying good morning with a smile or asking the right questions to make sure your group is having a great time. We offer the kind of hospitality that brings our guests back, year after year.
We offer 7,000 acres of private land with a diverse array of native habitat, bringing in and holding bountiful amounts of birds throughout the year. We plant and maintain a variety of different crops and grasses and harvest very little, leaving great cover and food sources for South Dakota pheasants throughout the year. Most days will end early with limits taken by all, but that is sometimes dependent on the skills of the shooters! If you're looking for something different, and the season is right, you can try some South Dakota walleye fishing on the Missouri River.
Each morning and afternoon you can warm up or cool down on our world-class sporting clays course or our brand new skeet and trap range.
Come and share with us the true magic of these wonderful South Dakota Pheasant hunting Lodges and find out for yourself why Thunderstik Lodge is known as the “Pride of the Prairie”.

Thunderstik Lodge Testimonials
“I have rarely experienced a professional group so dedicated to giving the hunter a memorable outdoor experience. I believe that I enjoyed most the fact that the lodge is located smack in the middle of the best hunting group I’ve ever seen. This, of course, means that a sleepyhead like myself didn’t have to bail out of a motel downtown and then ride 50 miles over rough roads to get to the pheasant fields or the duck and goose blinds.”
