We are a small working cattle ranch in northwest South Dakota. We have natural wooded draws, dry creek bottoms and wide open prairies. We are fortunate to be located along the Little Missouri River in Unit 35 and have several nice dams which attract whitetail and mule deer. We have a few wild turkeys that show up once a year and roam along the river. We recently purchased 960 more acres that the antelope seem to frequent. We are now offering non-guided hunts.
We accept a small group of private hunters each year. We are currently accepting new hunters and we give preference to the kind of hunters who become family friends and come back year after year. Upon arrival we will give you a tour of the ranch and point you in the right direction. Tours last from 1/2 an hour to one hour. Jesse will tell you where he would hunt and what he has seen. He will also tell where you can and can not drive. After that it's up to you to set up blinds and cameras if you would like. We do have a few cameras and one blind set up that you can use.

Along with access to our almost 3,000 acres that is located at the homestead we have 2500 acres 20 minutes north of our residence that we call the Boxelder, and 960 acres 4 miles west of the homestead that we call Swinson Place & 2500 acres north of Camp Crook that we call the CY, we do offer the CY for the walk in hunting program. We only book one group of hunters at a time so all of the land is available to your party. We do not limit your tags, if you have a antelope and any buck tag you are welcome to hunt for both. Apply for a predator tag as an added bonus because we don't charge for predators taken.
We have two different lodging options for hunters.
We finished a renovation of the main ranch house and moved out of our trailer house. Our previous home, a single wide trailer with an addition on it has been converted into two "condos". A wall was built so the hired man has half the house and the other half is reserved for hunters. The hunting half has three bedrooms, a private bath and a small kitchen. The house is fully furnished. The kitchen has a coffee maker, Keurig, refrigerator, microwave, small grill, eating & cooking utensils. Condiments such as coffee, sugar, salt, pepper and butter are included. The bathroom has towels for use. Wifi is available and since there is not good cell service on the ranch expect to use wifi calling if you want to use your cell phone. There is a smart tv with Netflix.
The gym/bunk house has a large living area that doubles as our gym when it isn't hunting season. A full refrigerator, sink, couch with pullout sofa and smart tv with Netflix & Apple Tv are in the living area. Although there is not a stove a guy can cook with an electric burner, microwave or small grill. There is a toaster & coffee maker. Coffee pods are supplied for the keurig. The cupboards have pots pans, plates, cups and eating utensils. There is one private bedroom, with one full size bed and one twin bed. The bathroom has a shower, sink and clean towels. The main heat source is a wood stove.
