UGUIDE Featured Camp Review for 2024: The Faulkton Pheasant Camp

May 24, 2024 by

Location – South Dakota, Faulk County near Faulkton

 Private — You lead a busy life.  Here is your chance to get away.  Our property is rural and you will be 10 miles from a town of 750 people.  We find that the secluded aspect is what our guests like most. Yet we have a hospital, vet, grocery store, restaurants, auto and tire repair, etc.  We check you in, and then you are on your own.

 Habitat on Steroids — We have developed pheasant-specific habitat and have a combination of 11 shelter belts consisting of about 20,000 trees - all selected for pheasants.  This is just the beginning.  We have an abandoned railroad bed, 17 dams and many dugouts - rich with cattails and water.  It is no accident that pheasants go to water in a dry year.  

We also have 3,200 acres for your enjoyment with about 1,100 acres of that land exclusively managed for pheasants.  There are 34 food plots that equal about 110 acres.  We have found the correct ratio of food plots to habitat is 10%.

Equipment — Our guests are provided two Kubota RTV 1100's for their use and convenience along with a 2001 Ford crew cab 4 x 4. 

 Organized — Our operation is designed for your convenience and pleasure.  We believe a well organized operation is beneficial to your hunting pleasure.  The land is fully marked and a map is provided.

 Comfortable and Clean Accommodations — The lodge is fully equipped.  We have a BBQ shed where we have smokers, a Blackstone griddle, a propane grill and a place to have a beverage while food is cooking.  The lodge has three full bathrooms, full kitchen, three refrigerators and two freezers along with two sets of washers and dryers .  There are 15 beds - 6 are queens, 5 are doubles and 4 are singles.  We also have a couple cots.  There is also a big screen TV, internet and a large dining room table.

 Cleaning Station and Dog Kennels -  Two 5 x 6 stainless cleaning tables with center drop along with a restaurant three compartment sink with sprayer are offered.  All are in a heated and well lit area.  We have an area to lounge and tell about good shots and just visit.  We have (9) 5 x 9 dog kennels that hold 11 dogs.  The watering area and dog kennels are heated with concrete floors.  Our place is for the hunter who enjoys watching a dog work.

 Authentic — We are not a commercial hunting camp that releases birds while you sleep.  You will stay at the original family German Homestead.  In German, it means “bird”.  Every aspect of this place is for a real person who enjoys a real self-guided hunt with wild birds.
