Next Generation Pheasant Hunting at Historic Thunderstik Lodge

Next Generation Pheasant Hunting in South Dakota

A perfect Multi-generational hunt for all ages! Pheasant Hunting at Thunderstik Lodge is a great opportunity to pass on shooting and hunting enthusiasm and skills to the next generation. It’s also a great opportunity to leave the gadgets behind and be in the outdoors together.

Planned activities include:

  • Guided pheasant hunts with Thunderstik’s famous dogs
  • Open trap and skeet shooting
  • Shooting instruction from world-class shooters
  • Optional hiking, horseback riding, spa day, wild game cooking class, photography class, self-guided day trip to Badlands National Park (just 2 hours away) and more. (Some of these activities will incur an additional charge).

For other activities, you may challenge each other on our sporting clays course, hike through the river hills, visit museums, fishing, horseback riding or to spend an evening at a casino or golfing.

We have eight suites available at the lodge. Each suite has two bedrooms with two beds in each bedroom, two bathrooms, a living room area with satellite television, air conditioning and a river view deck. We also have two additional cabins for rent.
