Pheasant Hunting with Garrett Yrigoyen - Gage Outdoor Expeditions

Hosted Pheasant Hunt with Garrett Yrigoyen

Experience Pheasant Hunting with the Modern Outdoorsman, Garrett Yrigoyen

Pheasant Hunt with Modern Outdoorsman, Garrett Yrigoyen at Historic Thunderstik Lodge

The Historic Thunderstik Lodge on the Missouri River is known worldwide as the nation’s pheasant hunting capital. The spectacular, rolling grasslands of South Dakota offer the ideal habitat and terrain for hunting the impressive ring neck pheasant and consistently produce the highest pheasant populations. The days at Thunderstik Lodge have a gentle flow, as schedules are unrushed, allowing hunters to relax and enjoy their host’s witty personality and the complete Thunderstruck VIP treatment provided by our seasoned, experienced guides.

After a day in the field, hunters return to the Ranch and relax at the bar or by the bonfire, then enjoy a delicious chef-made dinner. They can experience the breathtaking view of the Missouri River from Historic Thunderstik’ s front porch and scan the rolling hills down to the river looking for our resident buffalo herd, mule deer and other wildlife. The views and company are amazing!
