    I have stayed at Lynn Lake Lodge and it is a great setup and the owners are hunters and cater to hunters and fishermen. You can be in good number within in an hour of lodge. Depending on your party size you will see birds, maybe not the volume in other parts of the state but your will have your chance to harvest your birds. Like many others have said even a down year in SD is better than most states and way better than staying at home.

    Canít kill birds on the couch. A down year in SD is still probably better than a good year in other pheasant states. Kansas has been pretty bad for several years now but itís still fun to get out and you canít beat a road trip!

    Thanks for reply. Looks like there will be 3 of us and two vizslas. Plan is to head west maybe to Ipswich, Aberdeen area. Regardless of how many birds we see it will be a fun trip and good for the dogs.

    Stay mobile if you can. 50-60 miles can make a difference. Good luck.

    agree, you are going to need to move around a lot this season.

    Stayed at LLL 4 times and going again in Nov. Shot birds each time, and pretty hard to beat staying with Paul and Karen. You said it was your first trip to SD. Keep a close eye on the no-tox rules and areas. George had to straighten me out on that a number of years ago and I pay close attention now. Make sure you have Paul explain how the entire area flooded out in the 90s and created that pot hole region. Very interesting set of circumstances for the dairy farmers there. Paul is a walking history book. You will have a great time. Bring enough food. Itís a little bit of a hike back to Webster for a gallon of milk.
