Platte Creek Lodge enjoys South Dakota's highest pheasant density in the State. With over 4,000 acres of private hunting ground, you will not be disappointed with your hunting experience. Located in Charles Mix County, one of the top in the nation for pheasant population, is a great start to any hunt. If you can get to the lodge, we can get you on a pheasant. Through the use of our Kawasaki mule, allows us to move about in the fields with the dogs. The mule is all we need for a great hunt through the native grasses, food plots, or tree belts.


Platte Creek Lodge has over 7,700 acres of private hunting ground for its exclusive use. We have planted food plots in some locations to help provide habitat for our pheasants all year around. Our birds are wild birds and will often challenge even the most experienced of hunters.

Now offering late season pheasant hunts. December is a great time to pheasant hunt in South Dakota and we offer great discounts on these packages.
