Great South Dakota pheasant hunting


Owners and operators, Randy & Rhonda Vallery

Friday, September 2, 2016


Like all of you we aren’t sure how fall is already here and summer is gone, but we are welcoming the cooler temperatures and the fall pheasant hunting season!

We have had drought like conditions on the ranch this summer and our drylands corn shows it a little but we still have habitat for the birds. Even with the extra dry summer we have witnessed several pheasant hatches, which is always fun to see!

Rhonda and I have been fielding calls for fall hunts, however there are still lots of open dates for a hunt with us. Please call us at 605-257-2365 to book a hunt. We are a working ranch so please leave a message if we are not there and we will return your call.

This marks our 30th year of hunting pheasants on the high plains of South Dakota. It’s been a great adventure full of birds, dogs and wonderful people.

Thank you for making High Plains Game Ranch part of your hunting traditions,



Welcome to Vallery’s High Plains Game Ranch where great South Dakota pheasant hunting happens! We encourage you to browse through our website to learn more about our upland game bird hunting operation and how we can help you make great hunting memories with your family or co-workers.

Our hunting preserve is located on a 5th generation farm/ranch operation in western South Dakota, right off the foothills of the beautiful Black Hills. There is lots to do in our area as Deadwood and Rapid City are nearby, but the habitat, birds and scenery of  Vallery’s High Plains Game Ranch might be all the entertainment you need.

Our guides are skilled outdoorsmen and our labrador retrievers are eager to hunt. The High Plains Game Ranch game lodge offers hunters a nice place to call their own for the day. It has a full kitchen, fireplace and bird cleaning facilities.

Currently we are booking the last few weeks of our season Jan – Feb 2016 and looking at booking our fall 2016 calendar. Contact us at (605)257-2365. We look forward to hosting you.

Currently booking for fall 2016. Call us to reserve your hunt!
