Frequently Asked Questions About Whitetail Hunts in SD

IF I SIGN UP FOR A SPECIFIC HUNT SUCH AS A 250" BUCK, IS THAT THE ONLY THING I CAN HUNT?

NO. WHEN HUNTERS BOOK WITH US, WE LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THEIR MAIN OBJECTIVE IS SO WE CAN MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO HAVE A GOOD SELECTION OF THAT PARTICULAR TROPHY AVAILABLE WHEN HUNTERS ARRIVE. WHEN THE ACTUAL HUNT OCCURS ANYONE CAN CHANGE THEIR MIND IF THEY SEE A DIFFERENT TROPHY THAT THEY PREFER.

IF I SIGN UP FOR ONE TROPHY AND LATER DECIDE TO HARVEST MORE THAN ONE, CAN I DO THAT?

YES YOU CAN. IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR HUNTERS TO HARVEST MULTIPLE TROPHIES WHEN THEY GET HERE. JUST NEED TO LET YOUR GUIDE KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. THERE IS USUALLY A PRICE DISCOUNT ON THE SECOND TROPHY TAKEN. IF, WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR HIGH FENCE HUNT, YOU KNOW THAT YOU WANT TO HARVEST MULTIPLE TROPHIES, PLEASE LET US KNOW.

MY SPOUSE AND I BOTH HUNT. CAN WE HUNT TOGETHER?

YES YOU CAN. YOU CAN HUNT TOGETHER OR IN SEPARATE LOCATIONS. JUST LET US KNOW YOUR PREFERENCE. OUR TOWERS AND STANDS ARE VERY SPACIOUS AND CAN COMFORTABLY ACCOMMODATE A COUPLE WITH A GUIDE.

MY SPOUSE WOULD LIKE TO COME WITH ME BUT IS NOT A HUNTER. CAN SPOUSE COME ALONG?

YES. IF SPOUSE WANTS TO GO ALONG ON HUNTS, THAT WORKS. IF SPOUSE WOULD PREFER TO STAY BACK AND HANG AROUND LODGE, THAT WORKS ALSO.

I'VE ALREADY SENT YOU MY $1,500.00 DEPOSIT AND BOOKED A HUNT. WHEN IS FURTHER PAYMENT DUE?

YOUR FINAL PAYMENT IS DUE AFTER YOU HAVE HARVESTED YOUR TROPHY(S). THERE ARE NOT ANY INTERIM PAYMENTS.

IF I SEE A SPECIFIC BUCK OR BULL ON YOUR WEBSITE THAT I REALLY LIKE AND WANT TO HUNT THAT ANIMAL ONLY, CAN YOU DO THAT FOR ME?
