Dakota Hot Spots, After my third visit I returned home from another wonderful visit at your fun place, well you guys are getting better and better at providing a quality pheasant hunt. The pheasant, the guide service, food, and the friendship you offer your visitors is great. Thanks to you all, hope to return soon.

I have been out to Dakota Hot Spots 4 times now and it never gets old seeing monster flushes of wild roosters and hens. The overhead shots and side to side shots you get out at Dakota Hot Spots are unreal. I consider myself a pretty decent shot until I get out to Dakota Hot Spots. Somehow these wild pheasants will humble you if you didn't bring your A game. I hunt all over the state of South Dakota and this is truly a unique experience. My 3rd trip to Dakota Hot Spots yielded the largest rooster spurs I have ever seen hands down. I posted the spurs photo on the internet and pheasant hunters marveled at the "Gramps" rooster or "Super Spurs" as some called it. I'll probably never see spurs that big again in my lifetime.

October found myself and a friend in Kennebec, South Dakota for opening day of the pheasant season. Our hosts were those friendly folks at Dakota Hot Spots. What a great place to experience a once in a lifetime hunt! From the warm lodge to the managed fields and food plots. From the sporting clays course to the 4x4 converted hunters bus. These guys really know how to fulfill your highest expectations. Was the hunting good? It was unbelievable! I have hunted pheasant in Texas, Kansas and Iowa but never have I seen anything like this year in South Dakota! And with the great dogs Hot Spots provided, I don't recall a single bird lost that hit the ground. I just wanted to share my wonderful experience in your hunter friendly state with your readers. What a great resource the magnificent pheasant is for South Dakota. See ya'll next year!

Hunting at Dakota Hot Spots is an exciting event every pheasant hunter truly should experience at least once in their lifetime. In over fifteen years of avid hunting, I have never seen so many pheasants in one day. The party hunt was exceptionally well-organized and safe. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and experienced. It was a memorable day of hunting I will never forget. I almost forgot to mention the food!

Thanks for the great hunt.  Have not seen so many birds in the air since hunting in Germany many years ago.  This was the second trip to the lodge and it exceeded the first trip.  Great hunting, Great chow, Great lodge and most of all Great people to hunt with and also great folks working at the lodge.  If the legs hold out I will be back again!

Fantastic, outstanding, incredible and amazing! Many hunting lodges might boast such terms but Dakota Hot Spots delivers on these accolades. The habitat was fantastic, it was incredible to see the numbers of late season birds inhabiting the well developed patchwork of food plots and cover established for the birds. We saw masses of pheasants in numbers I have never imagined were possible. The staff is outstanding, everyone we met from the cook to the guides were nothing short of top notch, cordial and up-beat. The food was incredible and the quantity and quality were absolutely great - even the coffee was top-notch. And last but not least was the shooting - we experienced high-five drives with hunters hooting, hollering and laughing and the wildest chaotic group flushes of birds I have ever experienced - simply put, AMAZING! If you take the opportunity to hunt for the sharptails and prairie chickens I guarantee they will test your shooting capabilities too. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and are already making plans to return for a late season hunt again next year.
