For the month of August we will be reviewing the outfitting services of High Prairie Outfitters.  For this hunt we traveled to Deadwood, South Dakota and interviewed Dave Ciani of High Prairie Outfitters. Dave took us on an incredible All Inclusive Archery Antelope Hunt near the scenic Black Hills.  During this hunt we had a chance to see exactly what sets Dave's hunts apart from the average outfitter. Enjoy the fantastic 3 day adventure that we experienced. Click here to read the entire story of our amazing South Dakota antelope hunting experience.

South Dakota Mule Deer Hunts:

Hunt 1: Trophy Fair Chase Mule Deer Hunt:  Prior to the hunt, outfitter Dave Ciani will explain the qualifications needed to harvest a mule deer buck. There will be penalty fees for smaller animals harvested. Note: This is not the hunt for everyone and there are no guarantees but the chance at a once in a lifetime animal is worth the risk for some hunters. This is a rut only hunt with limited availability on specifically managed properties.

Hunt 2: Economical Mule Deer Hunt:  On this hunt you will have opportunity at hunting South Dakota mule deer bucks in the 140 – 170 class range. Unlike the trophy hunt, you will have your pick at the animal of your choice and there are no penalty fees.  Hunter success rates are very high on this hunt. This is also a rut only hunt.

Hunt 3: Whitetail / Mule Deer Combo Hunt:  You will have the opportunity to harvest a Whitetail and / or a Mule deer buck. As with all of our South Dakota deer hunting adventures we only hunt during the rut and we offer both gun and bow hunts.

South Dakota Archery Antelope Hunts 

Come hunt the speedy prairie goats of South Dakota. We specialize in archery antelope hunts over water. We start hunting in August and only offer limited number of hunts each fall. We hunt thousands of acres with large herds of goats but again we do limit the number of hunters. This way we can offer excellent hunting on antelope that have very little hunting pressure and exceptional trophy quality animals. We have an extremely high success rate on these hunts. Be sure to book early to guarantee your spot. During your hunt, stay at our beautiful lodge. Enjoy the meals that will sooth your feelings if you've missed a shot. Dave will encourage you to get back out there and try again.

Lodging & Meals

The lodging for all of our Black Hills Hunts will be at our on-site 1890's Stone House. This is a fully modernized lodge style bed and breakfast with all of the amenities. Dave’s wife Teresa and partner of over thirty years teaches wonderful cooking classes and is the full time chef at their beautiful 1890 stone lodge.

The meals and atmosphere at the lodge truly make the trip relaxing and complete. After a day of hiking through the hills chasing those big bucks, it is most delightful to enjoy an evening in the jacuzzi after a 5 course home prepared meal. Trust it is not possible to hike enough miles in a day to burn off 3 square meals prepared by Dave’s wonderful wife Teresa.

For our East river South Dakota whitetail hunting packages, we offer very clean, comfortable cabin accommodations at a resort overlooking the Missouri river. Meal plans consist of steak, shrimp, walleye etc and are very tasts and filling. You will be well taken care of on all of our hunts and will cater to most anyone's specific wants and needs.
