Thunderstik Lodge
Featured Outfitter
24931 Thunderstik Road, Chamberlain, South Dakota 57325
Phone: (800) 734-5168

You need to let Thunderstik know in late May and they will send out license applications to those who would like to apply. The application process is a lottery system. Most years they have had good luck getting licenses but there is no guarantee. Another option is to goose hunt on the Grassrope, an area of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe. Thunderstik works together to provide a great hunt and you can buy a license when you get there.

Platte Creek Lodge
Featured Outfitter
36537 Platte Lake Road, Platte, South Dakota 57369
Phone: (605) 337-9777

Waterfowl hunting is also available nearby. Non-residents need to apply to the state for a license. That link is SDGFP which brings you to the South Dakota Dept. of Game Fish and Parks.If you are unsuccessful in the drawing for tags you can purchase one over the counter and hunt the tribal land not far from here as another option. We hunt the Missouri River flyway as well as a lot of local ducks and geese making South Dakota their home. In the spring snow geese are another option. We mainly field hunt out of laydown blinds or out of a pit. We can also hunt the open water, of local ponds. Steel shot is mandatory for waterfowl hunting.
