South Dakota Duck Hunting Guides and Outfitters

Every year more than 15 million ducks migrate annually through South Dakota.  South Dakota ducks include pintails, mallards, gadwall,  and teal. In the northeastern half of the South Dakota,  numerous potholes, marshes and lakes, many state or federally owned, provide ideal early season hunting areas. Along the Missouri River, the migration peaks in mid November with 600,000 ducks, primarily mallards. Western reaches of the state also hold ducks on stock dams, rivers and small lakes. South Dakota’s prairie pothole country, located in the heart of the Central Flyway, consistently leads the nation in duck production.Ducks can be found and hunted statewide, with varying numbers of birds depending on the fall migration.

Waterfowl Hunting Quotes

Placing a few crow decoys to one side of a field spread for geese can increase your hunting success. These “confidence” decoys help lessen the wariness of geese by making the spread appear more lifelike.
