Pheasant/waterfowl combo:
If you are an early riser and want to make a full day of hunting this is a great chance to do a combo pheasant/waterfowl combo. You will be out early in the morning hunting waterfowl, and then begin hunting wild pheasants when the state season opens. We use some decoys and calls along with puddle jumping. We offer several different waterfowl species here.
The non-resident license is on a lottery so get this hunt booked right away. The state lottery draw is in July.

Whitetail Hunts: 
Here at Sportsman’s Acres we offer some great trophy potential, the average size buck will a score 140-mid 150s bc class and there is some much larger. We offer a 5 mile stretch along the James River with rolling hills and food sources on the top of the hills and with wooded draws running down to the river it makes for ideal travel corridors for some monster whitetails.  The average weight of the bucks here will range 225-300lbs. We have ladder stands as well as stationary stands for your convenience placed in the strategic places or pinch points so you have ample opportunity at a trophy whitetail.  And with all the cedar trees in the hills you can hunt off the ground as well. The whitetail hunts are on a very limited basis to ensure great trophy potential for each client. Remember South Dakota is the sleeper state for monster whitetails get in on the action now. We do not have any trophy fees here.

You can also do an archery whitetail pheasant combo; it’s a great way to take a break from the stand to enjoy some great pheasant hunting with your whitetail. We are also offering rifle whitetail hunts for 2010 now, we feel that we did the management practices right and are opening up to a very few rifle hunters for whitetails in 2010. These hunt can be done from the stand as well as drives for some monster whitetails, this hunt is on a very limited basis. This is your chance to get a great Midwest corn feed whitetail. These hunts are all-inclusive.

Spring Archery Turkey Hunts:
We have a great number of turkeys along the James River bottom ground, we offer eastern as well as Merriam turkeys here. We use ground blinds and decoys as well as hunts off the ground. We have some great trophy potential for some long beards. This is the same ground that we whitetail hunt on with rolling hills and wooded draws running down which make ideal roosting spots for our turkey population.

Dove Hunts:
Want to get your gun ready and have some great target practice for upcoming pheasant hunt, get into the dove hunting action, we use decoys and do a lot of pass shooting over small grain fields, there is a lot of spring wheat and winter wheat planted here.

Predator Hunts:
We also have a great opportunity for some predator hunts, we have some great spots for this, we use the rolling hills with ravines that go through them and use calls and decoys, it works best in the later season end of Nov -March, when the weather usually is cold and food is hard to come by.

Spring Goose Hunts:
This hunt is done from Mid-March until end of April, we use electric call with rags and decoys, it is a hard hunt but very rewarding if your here at the peak migration where you will see thousands of snows and blues, we usually set up in picked corn fields and wheat stubble. The sound is awesome when there is thousands around you.
