World Class Pheasant Hunting

On the Farms of South Dakota Since 1972

Since 1972, Mike has guaranteed "you will have plenty of shooting and leave with your limit of birds!"  See hundreds of pheasants each day you hunt!

We are a full-time business and have over 90% repeat customers.  We offer two and three-day pheasant hunting packages based out of Mitchell, South Dakota.  With our service, you can enjoy a South Dakota outdoors experience, but come back to town each evening after a great day of hunting.  After a delicious evening dinner included in our package, you are free to enjoy a night out on the town with the guys or relax in your own private room or our group hospitality room.  With our service, you and your group members are not held "hostage" at a lodge which may not meet your expectations.

We pride ourselves in providing World Class wild pheasant hunting for over 40 years.  We have exclusive rights to hunting land in the top pheasant producing counties in south central South Dakota.  Mike Kuchera has an extensive knowledge of pheasant habitat and works closely with many landowners to develop the best pheasant and wildlife habitat on their farms.  Mike is known for his ability to organize and orchestrate the hunts with a strong emphasis on safety in the field.

Our hunts are sold as a three-day complete package.  We will customize a package for a group according to their needs as well.  We can put individuals and smaller groups together to enjoy a hunt as well.  You will have a private room with deluxe accommodations across from Cabela's in Mitchell, breakfast at the hotel, a delicious hot field lunch buffet, and a mouth-watering steak, walleye and roast pheasant dinner with wine for your evening meal. The hunting package also includes a trapshooting warm-up and professionally cleaned and packaged pheasants. Our service has full-time staff and Mike Kuchera personally guides all of his hunts along with a professional dog handler of well-trained Labrador retrievers, a English Springer Spaniel and a Golden Retriever.

On our hunts it is very common to see 200 to 300 pheasants each day of the hunt. Our hunters can be assured they will shoot at their limit of birds every day.  We strive to have each hunter have a pheasant hunt that they have been dreaming of. 
We hunt within a 50 miles radius of Mitchell. We hunt in a traditional walk and block style of hunting and have prime habitat hunting at a different farm or area each day of the hunt. Our hunts are very organized, allowing everyone involved to enjoy the hunt.

The topography of the land we hunt is mostly flat and occasionally will have a little roll to it. The bird cover is a variety of different habitat such as tree shelterbelts with food plots (corn, cane or milo mix) alongside or in good cover in low lying areas in the cropland fields. Pheasants like weeds such as cochia and sweet clover so you will find them hanging out in this cover part of the day. We do have some areas we will hunt which are mainly grass such as switch grass, reed canary grass, and big blue stem grass.

We do not hunt the same area twice during your two or three day hunt.  Our goal is to hunt only wild pheasants.  Mike believes in keeping the traditional way of pheasant hunting alive. Mike Kuchera personally guides all of his hunts.  Our hunters leave happy and can't wait to come back next year.
