Women’s Only South Dakota Pheasant Hunt Set for Nov. 13-16

Print button Share

Women are invited to enjoy a weekend of pheasant hunting outside of Pierre, South Dakota Nov. 13-16.


This Women Gone Wild Weekend will feature guided hunting on more than 10,000 acres of high quality private land that’s teaming with wild pheasants. South Dakota Wild, a sporting travel service started 18 years ago by Jill Langer and her father, will offer two days of hunting, use of their bird dogs and opportunities to flush hundreds of birds a day.


Jill reports that groups usually limit out by mid-afternoon, which will give participants plenty of time for socializing. Each woman also will receive two free rounds of trap to practice her wingshooting with expert instructors.


"The whole point of this hunt is having fun in the outdoors,” said Jill Langer. “But this is not some rough hunting camp. It's all about great food, good hunting, comfortable accommodations and making new friends. That's what makes this trip so appealing."


The weekend hunt package, which costs $1,095, includes three nights lodging at the Ramkota Inn in Pierre and eight meals - dinner Friday night, breakfast lunch and dinner Saturday and Sunday and breakfast on Monday. Airport pick up and drop off, transportation during the hunt and all bird cleaning also is included, though guests are responsible for traveling to Pierre and purchasing their South Dakota hunting license.


The hunt, which is hosted by Jill Langer of South Dakota Wild and hunt coordinator Dory Birkhofer, is limited to 30 participants. Women are encouraged to secure their spot as soon as possible as the hunt is expected to fill quickly. To register, contact Dory Birkhofer at or 651-357-2362.
