"Hackin', Healin' and Shotguns on the South Dakota Plain"

November 10, 2019 by

I write this to you from the wide open plains near Chamberlain, South Dakota. It is a vast area where you get the feeling you could walk for the rest of your days, look back and still see where you started. It’s empty and beautiful at the same time, mile upon mile of rolling prairie and five times a day I expect to see a herd of buffalo come galloping over a rise. It is a very different place for the guy from the southern Appalachians.

South Dakota invites Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor industries

April 29, 2013 by

From state to state and coast to coast, the gun debate control rages on, causing much frustration and derision on both sides of the coin. To say it is a heated issue would be a severe understatement.

Coporate Hunting Trips

February 27, 2013 by

With the lowest unemployment in the USA, North Dakota has enjoyed an economic boom unlike any other in recent memory.

2012 Pheasant Hunting Report

September 10, 2012 by

As most people know by now South Dakota has been in drought conditions for most of the summer. For example, we had less than half an inch of rain in July. With that kind of news, we have been getting calls from some of our hunters asking about what we think the hunting conditions are going to be like this fall.
