Dakota Hunting Trips

The Dakota's #1 Hunting Resource


J River Ranch


About Us

Jim River Ranch is a working cattle and horse ranch, located in the Jim River valley, near Redfield, South Dakota. The emphasis at Jim River Ranch is to re-establish the native prairie grasses of Heartland America, which just happens to be the best pheasant habitat in South Dakota! Our endeavor is to insure that every guest enjoys an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives. You’ll wake up every day to a ranch style breakfast fit for any cowboy. Followed by some time to hone your shooting skill on the trap range, or your golf game on the local public links, at Fishers Grove, just 5 minutes from the Ranch. Lunch and soft drinks will be packed for the afternoon pheasant hunt, covering thousands of acres of privately owned land. Following one of the best days of pheasant hunting of your life, you’ll relax at the lodge, and if you choose, enjoy your favorite cocktail and one of the best cigars available on earth. Country style, home cooked dinners will be served each evening, followed by relaxing by the fireplace, big screen TV or in the recreation room.  Enjoy the hot tub before retiring to your room. Both wireless and cable internet access is provided throughout the lodge, and in each of the six guest rooms.  The guest rooms can be arranged any way that you would like singles or doubles.  The lodge also features five shared bathrooms. While you are recharging, for the next day’s activities, your game and pheasants will be cleaned, packed and frozen, ready for transportation.
