We are hunting SouthDakota week 6 with 4 guys this is our first SD HUNT. We would be open to one or two more guys if they were a good fit . We all go to the same church but not holy rollers lol . We are from Toledo Ohio and two of us are driving out as we have 4 dogs 3 English pointers and 1 GSP . I am looking for one or two to share the ride so any state close could work Pa. Mi. In. Ky. Illinois ? I have a ford F-350 crew . We enjoy hunting and meeting others that enjoy hunting. Would prefer no more dogs . We are hunting the whole week starting north of Sioux Falls in Flandreau then heading to Miller mid week to a Uguide camp. The trip is Nov. 16 thru the 23. Thank you Tim Shaffer. :welcome: 419-466-6681.

Rooster River 2 days 3 nights 6000 acres hat, buffet, license, lodging, option for extra birds . Indian reservation land, casino. 650.00

UGuide Miller camp 4 nights 3 days 2880 acres all wild pheasant exclusive access for this group . Miller area is a top area . 695.00
Extra cost would be food, fuel, shells and South Dakota license.

We are all 30 to 50 years young with many years of hunting birds small game and deer your age is no concern, just safety and desire for a fun successful hunt.

Im just south of you guys in Dayton and would've liked to tag along but I can't take a vacation during holidays, Thanks MEIJER!!!!! However I am heading out to Mitchell/Chamberalin area a few weeks before your group. Are you driving all the way through???? I'm going to split mine in half and just wondered if anybody could recommend a pet friendly hotel. Good Luck on your trip!!!

My route goes through Madison wi. And there are a couple there . Your route is more southern through Indy and then northwest to Cedar Rapids ? I think . Have not decided yet about driving straight through yet . But so pumped all summer I think I will.... I drive and travel a lot for work. What kind of dog or dogs ?

I'm taking the south trip through Indy and hoping to make it Des Moines or Omaha for stopover. I've got a 5 year old Brittany and just about everybody I know has labs.

Will do.....I'm kinda regretting the dates I have picked. I picked early season because I figured the weather would be tolerable and the campground I'm staying at closes Nov 1. I couldn't take any time off from Thanksgiving to New Years cause that's Meijers busiest time. Any later than that I didn't want to drive through blizzards or freezing rain storms. And I'm going on this trip regardless!!!!!

Early is usually better from what I have read. We had our dogs out last weekend on some quail, went well in as much that only one of the 4 have had quail experience . Mich preserve season is open now (15th)so I think I will get some hens up there soon. They lay down more scent and that's what I am after anyway.

The few preserves around here don't start hunting until Sep1 but have chukar and quail for sale/training purposes. I started my refresher course last year with quail and they weren't strong flyers and was a waste of time/money. I think i'll wait until hens and roosters are ready and just keep dragging/ hiding my scent filled dummy around the yard.
