Browns Hunting Ranch, in Gettysburg South Dakota, a true hunting and fishing destination. Fish Lake Oahe on the Missouri River for fabulous walleye, large pike, and schools of fish too numerous to mention. First class upland bird hunting, waterfowl, prairie dog, turkey, and big game are the main stay at Browns.
Our signature hunts are the upland bird hunts on 100% wild birds with strings of classy and stylish bird dogs on 100,000 plus acres. You’ll find our guides to be dog men, good handlers, knowledge of land and habitat and true professionals, with a 30 year Orvis Endorsed Wingshooting Guide on staff. Our habitat programs provide food plots, shelter belts, roosting and loafing areas to keep birds near for year round protection “great hunting just doesn’t happen by accident” we help where we can. With a maximum of 12 guns in camp we limit the hunts to 3 guns per guide shooting double guns only. Our strings of bird dogs, both pointing and flushing hunt for the gun, are staunch and steady they are one of our greatest assets. For those who have gun dogs we realize the importance of hunting with your own gun dog, we welcome you to bring your own dog or string of dogs they are an important part of the hunt.
The fishing too is some of the best you’ll ever have, knowledgeable guides with well equipped boats outfitted with everything you’ll need. Our guides know the lake and how to fish it. The Missouri River/Lake Oahe is a magnificent fishery the fish here are numerous and aggressive, one of the best bodies of water you’ll ever fish.
West river is where our prairie dog towns are located with some towns covering hundreds of acres. We provide shooting benches, meals and your beverages, you just need plenty of bullets. It’s a place for shooters, if you like long-range and challenging shooting, gun talk and ballistics, you’ll be at home here at Browns Hunting Ranch.
Sun Flower and corn fields stretch as far as the eye can see. It’s a feed lot for all the wildlife, however the deer herd greatly benefits. Massive whitetail and mule deer roam the river bottoms, coulees, timber areas, draws and swamps that make up a true hunting paradise. We limit the number of deer hunters to assure you of quality animals, book your hunt early, as they go fast.
This part of South Dakota is also part of the prairie pothole region, where potholes dot the landscape providing perfect breeding and resting areas for both local and migrating waterfowl. Hunting ducks with us you will have a chance to hunt a variety or species not seldom found. We offer both field and water hunts, it’s a great way to begin the morning prior to your upland hunt. It just doesn’t get any better than this.
The turkey population in South Dakota is as good as it gets. We are home to the Merriam species of wild turkey which are about the same size as the eastern, but are a bit darker in color and with whitish rump feathers that show up nicely against the darker appearance. The majority of our turkey hunts are west river, along the river bottoms and field edges. South Dakota offers both a fall and spring hunts.
