    I am not worried about hunting pressure as much as I am the stray bullet. My cousin had a cow shot last year. I am guessing that the guy who did it probably did not know it. A few years back a neighbor lady had one come through her living room wall. I am reluctant to book any hunters during deer season, if I do I make sure they know it is deer season.

    I hunt birds almost every weekend. But we do avoid deer season. Too many guys driving sloughs and road hunting.

    Well we decided to be safe rather than sorry especially on our first trip. Will be staying in Miller November 9-13. Its just the wife, one young dog and I so we want to try and avoid any possible conflicts so we decided to try it a week earlier and totally avoid the deer season. Thanks for the input and suggestions.

    Default Advice?

    I am new to the forum. I'm recently retired and looking forward to this year's hunting seasons. I've hunted my entire life in Minnesota (reside in Minneapolis area) and now would like to make a trip to SD for pheasants. Similar to the above post, it will just be me, my wife - who is new to hunting, and my hunting dog. I can't afford a guided hunt and don't like to hunt in big groups of people that I don't know. So it will be public land. I've studied recent posts and am thinking going the first week of November for 4 days and staying in Faulkton and just wandering from there. Any advice on location, things to be aware of, accommodations, strategy, etc would be greatly appreciated and will make the trip more enjoyable. Also, I could swing a day or so of trespass fee hunting so any thoughts on this would be helpful also. Thanks for the help!

    Default You and the wife

    Try to get down to the Orient Bar and Grill if you can. Prime rib is really good, and great burgers. I eat there when I hunt up that way. It's just a bit south of you. I spend two or three days each season hunting on a ranch just west of you on the Hand/Hyde county line. He's got 1600 acres and a farm house to stay in. I like it cuz my dog is right in the house with me and you just hunt right out the door. Owners are great folks. You can just hunt the land or hunt and stay. Really good deal. I also hunt school lands just north of there and have shot quite a few birds. PM me and I will give you the contact information. I split my ten days between up there and the Miller area. Hunting has gotten better each of the last four years I would say. Good luck on your trip.
