South Dakota Waterfowl Hunting

Double P Ranch is located in the Prairie Pothole region aka “the duck factory”. The high density of wetlands produces and attracts thousands of waterfowl. The ranch has nearly one hundred wetlands.

Many of our guests will add some waterfowl hunting during their visit with us. Waterfowl hunting begins the fourth weekend in September and continues until conditions force the birds South, generally late in November. To hunt waterfowl in South Dakota a NR waterfowl license is needed. This in a limited license awarded by lottery draw in early July.

Waterfowl Hunting at Double P Ranch

On Ranch Waterfowl Hunting

Hunt the ranch on your own or with a ranch guide. Blinds, decoys, and duck boats are provided for your use. This is a good option when birds are abundant in our local area. Hunting is over water in September and October. In November when the crop is out we will hunt fields on or near the ranch. Common waterfowl: Gadwall, greenwing teal, redhead, widgeon, shoveler, mallard, and pintail.

Guided Waterfowl Hunting

Off ranch waterfowl hunting option is a popular with many of our more serious waterfowl hunting guests. A dedicated waterfowl guide will scout prior to your arrival to pinpoint fields of feeding birds. These morning hunts often produce excellent world class shooting experiences. Common waterfowl: Mallard, widgeon, pintail, and Canada Geese.

South Dakota waterfowl licenses are awarded by lottery. Success in 2017 was 100%. Applications are due in July. Click here for more information.

Late September marks the start of South Dakota waterfowl and whitetail archery hunting seasons.  Many of our ranch guests enjoy adding a waterfowl* or archery hunt to their visit.

South Dakota Archery Whitetail Hunting:  Double P Ranch has been offering archery whitetails for nearly two decades. Our goal has been to offer the highest quality archery hunt in South Dakota.  Dedicated archery-only areas, deer food plots and well placed blinds and stands are found throughout the ranch.  It’s best to contact us early if you are interested in adding a whitetail hunt during your visit, since this option is limited and has high demand.

*Archery tags in South Dakota are not restricted.  It is best to apply for a tag in September.  The SD Game and Fish will mail the tag to your residence.  You will need to have the tag in hand when you arrive at the ranch.  We will gladly help assist our guests in applying for special licenses.

South Dakota Waterfowl Hunting:  Our guests hunt both water and fields during the start of the season.  It is typical to shoot a mixed bag of duck species and a few geese during your visit at this time of the season.  Ducks commonly harvested during the beginning of the season include: wood ducks, mallards, green and blue wing teal, gadwalls, pintails, spoonbills, and widgeon. Canada geese are also common.

**To hunt waterfowl in South Dakota, our guests need to apply for the license by early July.  We recommend our guests apply for the 10-day non-resident waterfowl license for the best chance of a successful draw (75% success w/o preference point).
