South Dakota Waterfowl Hunting
Check out our new episode of Waterfowl Obsession filmed with us in November 2011
Experience a Once in a Lifetime Prairie Pothole Hunt.
Snake Creek Outfitters offers world class waterfowl hunting in the prairie pothole region. Experience the thrill of thousands of ducks working your spread in a single morning. The Coteau region of South Dakota is widely known as the duck factory of North America. Our primary hunting grounds are in the very heart of this region. Our waterfowl hunts take place on the small sloughs and potholes in the area, as well as from layout blinds in recently harvested crop fields. The hunt of a lifetime awaits as our experienced guides can insure you and your party will enjoy all South Dakota has to offer. South Dakota non-resident waterfowl licenses are on drawing basis conducted in late June of each year. For applications and information, go to www.gfp.sd.gov. We also offer a limited amount of hunts on a bordering reservation with more liberal licensing.
There is a great opportunity to harvest several species of waterfowl. Whether you would like to hunt divers over open water or experience a tornado of mallards and pintails over corn fields, Snake Creek Outfitters offers it all. Some of the common species you will see are mallards, pintails, widgeon, blue and greenwing teal, shovelers, ruddy duck, canvasback, redhead, bluebill, ringneck, gadwall, mergansers, buffle head and the occasional wood duck. Check out the SD migration map. We welcome all hunters; young, old, and the mobility challenged.
Your Hunt of a lifetime will take place on all private land. We have access to over 10,000 acres of private ground, guaranteeing you will experience a quality hunt. Your hunt will take place on a mixture of crop ground, grassland, low-lying sloughs and potholes.
