    I hunted out there two years ago late season. It was a private land hunt and their were LOTS of birds. Due to some bad navigation we ended up on tribal land and it was pretty heavily grazed but the coulees were stacked with sharpies and pheasants. Buy gas whenever you can as there isn't much out there on the rez. Wish i could help more.

    I have hunted at U-Guide's West River Adventures camp in Timberlake for the last 4 or 5 yrs. There are usually plenty of birds and daily limits are not unusual. Two yrs. ago was the exception with high temps and drought conditions. Last year was better but not as good as the first 3 or so yrs. I hunted there. Bird numbers were down most places in SD last yr.

Are ther much for crops and food in that part of the state for birds? Looking for everybody's thoughts.
    Back to the OP thoughts...

    I decided to try this two years ago. I had ALWAYS seen tons of birds when driving through there on the way to my usual final destination, on US 212, finally gave it a go. I found ONE decent public spot in the entire area. The areas designated for public hunting are horsesh*t, flat desolate grazed land. I'll never, ever go back. Not giving the natives any more of my money.

    Disappointing because there ARE a ton of birds there. I can admit this NOW but at the time I was NOT aware that road hunting on the rez was illegal and in about 90 minutes the only day we spent there, me and my hunting buddy absolutely hammered the roosters road hunting. Good thing we didn't get pinched, who knows what they would have done to us on the rez.
