"Think of the best day of pheasant hunting you can possibly imagine.
Today was better."
– John D. from Winchester, KS
South Dakota Pheasant Hunting
Circle H Ranch is a hunter’s dream centered around habitat including tree belts, natural grasslands, sloughs, draws and crop land. The terrain provides groups of all sizes with challenging and unparalleled pheasant hunting. Our guides accompany each group in the field with our well-trained dogs.
We pride ourselves in offering pure South Dakota hospitality at its finest and knowing our guests on a personal level to make your stay with us extraordinary in every way.
The pheasant hunting season begins at Circle H Ranch in September and ends in March. Although fall is the most popular time, the late season provides some excellent hunting and challenging shooting.
South Dakota Pheasant Hunting at the Circle H Ranch
Pheasant hunting at its finest is what you find at Circle H Ranch located in the heart of pheasant country near Gregory, South Dakota. Thousands of acres of South Dakota’s premier pheasant terrain are reserved for the exclusive use and enjoyment of our guests.
Throughout the years, numerous tree belts and pheasant food plots have been added to the Ranch. This provides excellent nesting areas and ensures a plentiful and stable pheasant population each year. The terrain is conducive to providing parties of all sizes with challenging and unparalleled pheasant hunting.
Transportation in the field is by specially designed and converted all-wheel drive buses. In early season, warm weather hunters sometimes prefer our open-air trailers built specifically for this purpose. In most cases, your group will be able to hunt separately with a friendly, knowledgeable guide and dogs assigned exclusively to your group.
Your birds will be processed, frozen and packaged for your return trip home.
Dogs & Kennels
Circle H Ranch has eager and well-trained dogs to provide hunting enjoyment and to assist in locating and retrieving your game. Your field guide will work the dogs. You are welcome to bring your own dogs, provided they are reasonably trained and kept in our clean, comfortable, private kennels.
Circle H Ranch has two dog kennel buildings with electric radiant heat in the floors. Each dog has their own individual sleeping area and kennel run.
Guest dogs stay in our guest kennel located just a few steps from the lodge. It provides a quiet, comfortable place for your dog to rest after a hard day in the field.
