Nestled within the vast South Dakota grasslands, overlooking the majestic Missouri River, Thunderstik Lodge is South Dakota's most luxurious pheasant hunting lodge. Since 1988 our professional staff have been tending to hunter's every need and creating the perfect pheasant hunting experience.

Our luxury South Dakota pheasant hunting lodge has a unique setting and exceptional staff that have built relationships with hunters from around the globe. We are proud and grateful to have one of the highest return rates in the industry. Thunderstik is South Dakota's best pheasant hunting lodge!


At Thunderstik Lodge, you’ll find a wide variety of native habitat and a truly diverse pheasant hunting environment. We plant and maintain a variety of different crops and grasses to hold pheasants throughout the fall. Most days will end early with limits taken by all, but that is sometimes dependent on the skills of the shooters!


Thunderstik Lodge's pheasant hunting season begins in mid-September and runs through early December
