South Dakota’s sportsman paradise
For more than 40 years we have had the privilege to offer our guests a premiere upland wing shooting experience and 2021 looks to be nothing short of a successful venue. Providing our guests the opportunity to hunt the “Grand Slam of the Dakota’s”, South Dakota is the land of the Chinese ring-necked pheasant, Hungarian partridge, Sharp-tail grouse, and Prairie chicken. Migrating Canada geese and mallard ducks can be found intermingling with the upland species from early December through January. With solid bird counts from spring hatches and more than 12,000 acres to hunt, expect 2021 to provide even the discerning sportsman a hunt to remember.
Start your hunt right
Your day begins at 8:00 am with a hearty breakfast. Following breakfast the morning of your first day of hunting, you will be presented a safety briefing. 9:00 am your guide(s) will greet you in the locker room and take you to the fields in our hunt buses. At noon you’ll arrive back at the lodge for a warm lunch and a brief R&R period prior to the afternoon hunt.
During your afternoon hunt, you may continue hunting pheasants or conquer the wild prairies for the elusive sharp-tail grouse and prairie chicken. Having the opportunity to shoot a multitude of different species separates us from the norm.
At the end of your day enjoy a round of sporting clays or settle back, put your feet up and enjoy a good book in front the fireplace. After you’ve teased your palette during one of our signature dinners, relax in the spa area or just sit back and enjoy a fine cigar in the Hickok Cigar Room.
“I can’t say enough about our stay at the Tumbleweed lodge. The staff was top tier, the food was superb, and the accommodations were 5 star. The hunting was outstanding due to the meticulous habitat management by the Bollwegs. Our party limited out every day in the field on Pheasant, and had Partridge, and Sharp tail mixed in as well. I am sure we will be back to enjoy the wonderful hospitality, and hunting, at the Tumbleweed.”
