South Dakota Pheasant Hunting


The Guides

The hunting guides at High Plains Game Ranch are avid sportsman themselves with knowledge of dogs, guns and wild game. Each hunting party is furnished with a guide and hunting dogs. We strive to host a safe, quality hunting experience each and every time and none of our guides carry guns during the hunt.

Head Guide Randy Vallery is owner/operator of High Plains Game Ranch. He is pleased to offer individual, family, and corporate hunting parties a chance to experience the land and wildlife that his family has known for over 125 years.  He is also a Youth Hunt Safe instructor and an advocate of preserving South Dakota hunting traditions for the next generation. He has many a tale to tell and enjoys seeing the next generation of hunters taking part in High Plains Game Ranch hunting traditions.

Fred Wells is a retired Air Force Lt. Colonel and long-time family friend of the Vallerys. He is an avid outdoorsman, specializing in muzzle loading rifle and custom knife making. Fred is also a Youth Hunt Safe instructor.

Brian Mills can say he has hunted every type of terrain South Dakota has to offer in his hunting adventures. He is a waterfowl hunting enthusiast first, but has a deep appreciation for upland game bird and big game hunts as well.
