South Dakota Pheasant Hunts
The Buffalo Butte Ranch is located in the heart of this area known as the "Golden Triangle" for South Dakota pheasant hunting. A prime pheasant hunting area between Gregory, Winner and Chamberlain. No other region compares to the wild pheasant numbers found in this part of South Dakota. This is why pheasant hunters flock to South Dakota!
We hear many comments on how well the fields are laid out. Add to this some of the most beautiful back drops and sunsets you will ever see. You will agree with many of our past pheasant hunting friends that Buffalo Butte Ranch is "the best kept secret" for pheasant hunting in South Dakota.
South Dakota Pheasant Hunting Land
Buffalo Butte Ranch is a 6,000 acre privately owned and operated pheasant farm which has been in our family for five generations. Our Buffalo Butte Ranch pheasant hunts are in a variety of cover including milo, corn, sudan grass, cattails, tree belts and winding natural waterways and draws. Much of the land west of the Missouri River is marginal farmland and is not planted fence line to fence line. Because of the natural terrain and conservation practices such as CRP and shelter belts, the native pheasants flourish. With over 6,000 acres to hunt your corporate trip will have many lasting memories.
