Hunting is a long-standing tradition in the Great Lakes Region. And it's no wonder when you consider the rolling river breaks, brush-filled draws, sprawling grasslands and agricultural fields that characterize the region. This landscape provides prime habitat for a variety of game species.
No matter what type of hunt you're looking for, you'll discover all the amenities you need. The Great Lakes Region is home to cozy hunting lodges and experienced guides, not to mention hometown restaurants, retail stores that cater to hunters, and good old-fashioned South Dakota hospitality.
