Deep Creek Palmer Ranch
Gary and Bambi Palmer own and operate Deep Creek Outfitters/Palmer Ranch in the heart of the South Dakota prairie. Gary started by leasing the land in the 1980’s, and ended up purchasing the ranch in 2000. He grew up just 5 miles away and worked on the ranch as a young man. He has intimate knowledge of the land and wildlife on the ranch. He is out on the land everyday working and knows the quality and quantity of deer and turkey available. He knows their habits and behavior. Using that knowledge he has strategically placed hunting stands/huts around the areas that deer frequent. Bambi’s delicious home-cooking will ensure you are fueled up before the hunt and are refueled after the hunt. They will ensure that you feel at home the minute you arrive. The rolling prairie is deceiving until you arrive at the ranch and see the wooded creek bottoms and draws that hold hundreds of white-tail deer and turkey. Mule deer are numerous too, and they are bound to appear out of nowhere in all parts of the ranch. Pronghorn antelope frequent the prairie flats and hay fields.
