Welcome to South Dakota Pheasant Acres
You’re in for the hunt of your life! We offer the finest hunting of Ring-Neck Pheasants in their natural environment. We are South Dakota’s oldest preserve and have spent the past 30 years developing the ultimate pheasant habitat.
We have restored 3500 acres to its natural state by planting it all back to native grasses. Tree strips, food plots and wetlands are scattered throughout the property making South Dakota Pheasant Acres an absolute wildlife haven. We selectively harvest the crops, managing everything “for the birds.”

Pheasant Acres has restored our 3,500 acres back to its natural state. We planted native grasses and over 100,000 trees. We also scattered food plots, shelter belts and over 30 wetland slews throughout the property. Thanks to over 30 years of hard work, South Dakota Pheasant Acres an absolute wildlife haven.
I would like to thank the Monfore’s for creating one of, if not, THE BEST pheasant habitat in the nation. Because of them, I have been able to have year after year of the most incredible pheasant hunting experiences that most dream about. We have hunted all over the state and nothing truly compares to what Jim and Barry have developed at SDPA.
South Dakota Pheasant Acres offers a ‘World Class’ hunting experience…their game bird habitat is the finest I’ve seen, supporting unbelievable numbers of birds. Dr. James Monfore’s decades of hard work has created a very special place to hunt.
When you grow up in the Pheasant Capital of the World and pursue them in the wild across half the continent, pheasant “preserves” fall short. Pen raised and released birds just don’t act like real, wild pheasants. Except at SD Pheasant Acres. I don’t know how many birds SDPA raises or turns loose and I don’t care because they all act like wiley veterans bred and born in a South Dakota briar patch. They run, skulk, sneak, hide and flush like polychromatic explosions of genuine Dakota ringneck excitement. Given the incredible, high-quality habitat at SDPA, I suspect most of its birds are wild born. And their numbers are astounding.
