“I had three days of seeing more birds in the air than I thought possible.”
“Our pheasant population in central Iowa is devastated so we were looking forward to what has been our only real hunting of the year. Stephan put us on an incredible number of birds that I will remember forever. I had three days of seeing more birds in the air than I thought possible. Numerous times I didn’t get a shot off because there were so many birds getting up that I couldn’t pick one out. When I was ready to shoot more kept getting up between me and the bird I had picked out. It is an awfully lot of fun to be confused by seeing too many pheasants in front of your gun. We felt like we were in a pheasant hunter’s heaven for the three days we hunted. I will never forget the memories from these trips. Great time. Thank you, Stephan!”
“He was very professional in terms of gun safety and the overall welfare of the hunting party, and he made the hunt interesting with his comments on shooting and his knowledge of the birds and their habitat. The wild birds were abundant and healthy due to the good cover and the food plots available on the Stanley Farm. It was not difficult for our group of hunters to get their limit. I intend to return and hunt with Stephan and I would heartily recommend the Stanley Farm as the place to go for a most enjoyable bird hunt.”
“I have hunted for five years in South Dakota and the best true hunting experience for pheasants was with Ringnecks Hunting Lodge because there is so much variable terrain, not just crop rows. The variety makes it so much fun. The birds are wily and wild, sneaking around you if they can get away with it. Also, the deer population makes it fun when a deer flushes instead of a pheasant. I am coming back this fall.”
“Accommodations provided by Ringnecks are beyond expectations.”
“Situated in the heart of South Dakota,Ringnecks on the Stanley Farm has proven excellent pheasant populations year after year and provided a successful hunt each trip into the field. Overall my hunting experiences with Ringnecks Hunting have been beyond what most locations can offer. The practice rounds of clay target shooting offer early competition among your hunting group and polish your shooting skills before hitting the field. The available acreage, variety of ground, abundance of pheasants, excellent habitat and food sources for the birds leaves little doubt in shooting your limit each day. The guide service along with well-trained dogs provided for a world class hunt.
Accommodations provided by Ringnecks are beyond expectations. The hospitality, meal preparations, and lodging make you feel welcome as a hunter, guest and friend of the family.”
“Stephan, thanks for a great hunt! My two boys are still talking about how they will never forget how much fun the hunt was. You and chuck were great! Thanks again for the memories that will last a life time. I will keep in touch…next year will be here soon.”
“I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t seen for myself.”
“The pheasant numbers in the Presho area are amazing. I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t seen for myself. We took our German shorthairs and Stephan did everything he could to accommodate us. We decided to work his worst areas first to hunt the dogs so we didn’t limit too quickly. There were so many pheasants in some of his areas that the dogs were confused by too much scent. We had a great experience and look forward to going back this year. Stephan – Thanks for the great memories you have provided my family and friends.”
“The large open rooms lend well for our socialization.”
“His properties tend to be sized towards larger parties than we have and his flexibility on how the hunt is conducted is well received in our group (our preference is more towards flushing pheasants with our dogs than just driving fields at posters).
The lodge is as important as the quality of the fields. The large open rooms lend well for our socialization. After all, that’s why we hunt together.”
“Awesome hunting in beautiful surroundings with professional guides who knew where to find the birds and how to get them up in front of our guns! Super friendly service and very comfortable accommodations.”
“I’ve hunted pheasants in South Dakota for 38 years now, and one thing I know from all those years is that central South Dakota, specifically Lyman County is The Pheasant Capital and Stephan at Ringnecks hunts all over that county.”
