A crisp fall day, the far-off hum of combines harvesting corn, the endless prairie wind bending the

   grass - then the sharp crack of a shotgun, the excited barking of dogs, and the triumphant shout

   of a lucky hunter announces the fall of the first pheasant of the day.


   The vision of the Dakota Prairie Lodge & Resort began long ago after experiencing the thrill of

   opening day of pheasant hunting for many years, first as a family tradition and later as a more

   extended endeavor that included guiding groups of hunters.  The orange vests and hats, the

   sturdy pants for walking through corn stalks and sorghum, the empty shotgun shells, the contest

   for the longest tail feathers, and the tall tales of amazing shots and unbelievable hits all contribute

   to the magical aura of pheasant season.


   Providing a first-class lodge and resort to accommodate the hunters is the logical extension of the

   hunting experience, guaranteed to enhance their enjoyment of South Dakota, encourage

   camaraderie among the hunting parties, and ensure their frequent return to this amazing state.  

   The Lodge reflects rural architecture and style, promotes local cuisine and encourages  

   appreciation of South Dakota culture, while containing all the amenities and comforts that guests

   have a right to expect and enjoy.
