Rifle permits are hard to come by in Todd County, they are available however, but you must draw. For the person that is serious about getting a permit a hunter may call the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks and ask about permits for Todd County. If you are serious about booking a hunt call Rock Creek Hunting as we strictly limit the number deer that we harvest. We have had a number of hunters ask about bow hunting and one of our guides did harvest a deer with a bow last year so we have decided to investigate bow hunting for the 2001 season. If you are interested in bow hunting in South Dakota, bow permits are for the most part available on an over the counter basis. Your chance of getting a deer with a bow is very good, if you can hit them. Our experienced guide is young, in good shape and ready put you on a stand to try your luck, call us and see what real hunting with a bow is all about.
Deer hunting takes place on our 39,000 contiguous acres that is surrounded on all four sides by the Rosebud Indian Reservation. Mule deer and Whitetail deer are both abundant on the ranch. The area is not known for Boone and Crockett records, but we do get sizeable heavy horned antlers, they are smarter however, and you have to hunt longer and harder for them. The permits are available from either the South Dakota Game Commission or from the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. It is not uncommon to see herds of 20 deer at a time as this area is thick with deer. We only allow four hunters per season and you must apply early to get a permit. Give Bill a call at 605-378-1538 for details. The hunts are fully guided on private land, and is definitely not any thing like a public land hunt. If you want a nice relaxed deer hunt that does not require rugged mountain hikes and a darn near 100% chance of getting a deer this may be the hunt for you.
