Overview:
We’re excited to now offer Antelope Archery Hunts on our private leases in the Black Hills region of South Dakota!  This hunt includes guide services, home-cooked meals, game handling, comfortable accommodations and a HIGH OPPORTUNITY TO “GET YOUR GOAT!”  After a full day afield, you’ll return to the lodge where you can unwind, share stories and enjoy a home cooked meal before catching a good night’s rest.

Species and Limits: Each hunter may harvest up to 1 Antelope (buck or doe).

Location & Transportation: This hunt will take place on our Private Land Leases near Newell, SD.  Guests typically fly into Rapid City, SD the day before the hunt, rent a vehicle and arrive in camp by 3pm (about 1 hour drive).  From camp, we’ll provide transportation to and from the field for the duration of your stay.

Success Ratio: Nearly 100% shooting opportunity on a mature, representative Antelope buck.

Hunt Style & Terrain: Depending on timing and situation, we offer both spot-and-stalk style with decoy and ground blind style hunts.  Our leases are easily accessible and not terribly difficult to navigate.  To that end, it’s in your best interest to be in as good of physical condition as possible in order to increase your chance for success and ensure an enjoyable hunt.

Price:

All hunt prices are based on 2 hunters x 1 guide (1×1 hunts are available for additional $1000)

  • $3,400 per hunter (3-day spot and stalk with decoy or blind style hunt).
  • Price includes: meals, lodging, guide services, field preparation of game and transportation to/from designated hunting areas.
  • Price does not include: transportation to camp, applicable hunting licenses/tags, game processing, taxidermy fees, alcoholic beverages, gratuities and hotel or meal costs before or after scheduled hunt dates.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: A wounded animal shall be considered harvested and any continuation of the hunt shall be at the discretion of the outfitter.

Gratuities:
Our team works hard to ensure your experience is as good as it can be from start to finish. Therefore, when the smoke clears (and provided it is warranted), a tip for your cook and guide will be greatly appreciated.  Of course, the amount is at your discretion, but a good rule of thumb is 10% of the hunt cost for your guide and 5% of the cost for your cook.
