Fall SD Duck Hunts

Guided Hunt

Join me on a hunt of a lifetime in South Dakota during the Fall migration. World class hunting for Ducks and Geese in the heart of the flyway in the Prairie pothole region. With minimum Hunting pressure and low population area the birds see very little pressure. I mainly hunt dry fields but toss in a water hunt once in a while. South Dakota is a Lottery Draw state that you must apply for in the month of June and results in the beginning of July.

Spring Snow Goose

Join us this spring and experience the amazing spring snow goose migration seeing massive flocks of snow geese on thier treck north. We offer Hunts that start in Arkansas in late January and follow the geese through Missouri and into South Dakota until early to mid April. With years of experience in chasing these challenging birds we know where to position ourselves in key staging areas yet flexible to move at any given time if the birds move. It's a once in a lifetime experience watching these birds decoy from a mile high to your feet. The spring season allows unplugged guns, extended shooting hours, and the use of electronic calls.

Our guided hunts are performed by myself and my professional experienced guides that are also serious waterfowl hunters. While birds are not guaranteed we will do our very best to provide a fun and successful hunt. I would like to guess an average day is 25-45 birds. Big number days shooting 50 to 150 will happen and so will zeros, that's hunting. We recommend that you book a couple days to increase your odds of having the big shoot.

Hunt Includes:

  • Large decoy spread that will be set in advance.
  • Rotary machines and flyers.
  • Comfortable top of the line layout blinds.
  • All day hunt 1/2 hour before sunrise until 1/2 hour after sunset.
  • Experienced guide for the full day except for a 2 hour lunch due to the long days and he may have been setting decoys most of the night.
  • It's an all day hunt that you can come and go as you please.
  • ATV ride if you are unable to make the walk.

Spring season gives us a very short window of time to run these hunts where a deposit is required. Book your hunt as soon as possible since dates fill quickly. Hope to hear from you and see you in the spring. Thanks.

"Just wanted to drop a quick line. I was part of a party of three guys from Wisconsin that came down to Richmond, MO last week for a snow goose hunt. We hunted all day Thursday and Friday. Even though the weather was not the kindest we had an awesome time. Since this was our first snow goose hunt I don’t think we were REALLY knowing what to expect as far as how these birds work and decoy. Not used to seeing that kind of numbers of birds in Wisconsin. Our guide Al, was great to hunt with. Knowledgeable, hardworking, and easy going."

"During the past 30 years, I have hunted with a lot of outfitters, but Bob Berens is in an elite class all by himself. Bob’s waterfowl IQ is off the charts, he’s a tireless scouter and is very meticulous with his decoy spreads. He has top of the line equipment and keeps you very comfortable during the hunt. It is for these reasons why I am a big fan of Bob, aka the 'waterfowl junkie'."

"I just want to say thanks for a great hunt. Cody won't stop talking about it and he really had a great time. Not only was the hunting fantastic, the extra effort of moving the spread in the middle of the night after hunting all day was very appreciated and I think it was the right move. Just seeing that many geese was well worth the drive. Thanks again and hope to see you next year.."

- Jim Plantz, Chicago IL

"We are booked again for the 7th and 8th of feb. We went with Bob last year and was not disappointed. Guys(and ladies) if you are thinking about a goose hunt Bob runs a stand up outfit and does everything in his power to put you on birds. We killed a lot of birds last year. Enough that I booked this years hunt in July. We saw approximately 300,000-400,000 geese last year. Again if you are even thinking about going on a hunt please give Bob a shot. You won't be disappointed. See you in a couple of weeks Bob!!!!"
