Those scheduled to hunt in Mitchell, SD will need to come to Hecla, SD (north east of Aberdeen). The weather is very warm for this time of the year and I think that we will end up having to move right away if we hunted Mitchell.
We stay at Dakota Hunting Farms Lodge (www.dakotahuntingfarms.com)(phone 800-356-5281) near Hecla, SD. This is where we will be staying and meeting in the morning prior to heading to the field. We are planning on you arriving the night prior to the hunt and leaving on the last day. If you plan on doing something different than that please let me know so I can note it on the schedule. You will pay the lodge directly for meals and lodging. You do not need to call and make reservations. Once we start running our hunts (mid Feb.) I can be reached on my cell phone 563-419-3572.
Those snow goose hunting Missouri one of our hunters stopped at the refuge and they told him 300,000 birds on the refuge. Plenty to hunt when I drove by there today.
