Every pheasant hunter dreams of being able to freely roam pheasant filled land with their family, company, buddies, and/or their dog. This dream is our focus here at Anderson Outfitters, and one that we are making possible with some of the best hunting land there is in the country. Year after year, our land produces thousands of wild pheasants, which makes for some of the most exciting hunting experiences available to any hunting enthusiast.
Our main objectives are:
• Client Safety
• Client Satisfaction
• Creating Memories
Located in the Heart of South Dakota's Pheasant Country, Anderson Outfitters continues to groom the fields to produce more wild birds, on more private land, than most outfitters could only dream of. Pheasant hunting has been our main wildlife focus for over 3 generations. We continue to have hunters compliment us regarding our bird population, and the agricultural processes involved with our outfitting operations. With over 25,000 privately owned acres our pheasant hunting experience is second to none!
We have a wide variety of habitat, which allows hunters to choose their preference from the following: CRP fields, Shelterbelts, Row Crops, Rolling Hills, Deep Ravines, Sloughs, and deserted building sites.
Because of the amount of land that we hunt at Anderson Outfitters we are able to allow our hunters the ability to hunt our incredible pheasant-filled fields with only their group. We offer this exclusivity because we respect peoples' desires to create their own individual hunting memories. Whether you are seeking a corporate hunt, your child's first pheasant hunt, or you and your buddies just want to hunt with your own dogs, we will facilitate your wishes. Our family and field guides will do our best to ensure a safe and successful hunt for you and your group, year after year.
So remember, at Anderson Outfitters you have the ability to hunt with only your group, as there is nothing worse than being paired-up with the unknown safety levels of other hunters. Anderson Outfitters also has the ability to accommodate any number of hunters, from 1 to 50+.
We work hard to schedule hunts based on the capabilities of our land and birds, as it is a terrible experience walking into a field while watching all the birds fly out the other end. We schedule hunts to maintain a balance, ensuring that each client, of Anderson Outfitters, receives the best hunting experience, no matter what time of the year, or season, reservations are made.
* A 50% group deposit is required to secure reservations, and is non-refundable. In case of emergency, unused deposits may be used within the same year's season, if open dates are available. Reservation dates are not secured until Anderson Outfitters, LLC receives the deposit. Final balance is due upon arrival, before hunting or fishing begins.
The reports said that bird numbers were down. I can't imagine what it would be like if the bird numbers were higher!
We had such a great time! This is the kind of hunting we had back home years ago when I was a kid.
This is perfect for our dogs! They are in seventh heaven with all this habitat and open country. They are a big part of why we come and we all are having a blast!

I just look forward to this time with you folks so much every year. My Wife is coming with me next year. I can't wait for her to enjoy this experience too!
Al and I have hunted South Dakota for years. This was our first hunt at Anderson Outfitters. One of the most enjoyable hunts we ever had! We plan to bring our whole group back next year.
Dear Anderson Outfitters:
In my youth I enjoyed hunting pheasants in Illinois. Due to lack of birds, I have never been able to share the knowledge and excitement with my 14 year old son. We have tried clubs and state hunting grounds where they release penned birds, but it just wasn't the same. My friend invited my son & I to South Dakota. I was skeptical. I didn't want that club atmosphere, where everything is regimented, and the club does everything but pull the trigger. Anderson Outfitters was a perfect fit for us. Jim Anderson showed us where we could hunt and discussed strategy, but we did the actual hunting. My son learned how to hunt wild birds. To me that was the most meaningful part of our trip.
Not to leave out my vizsla, but he was in doggie heaven. Thanks to Jim's veterinary knowledge, he had Gabriel patched up and ready to go for the next day. Good people make the difference. Jim was a bonus to our trip: helpful, conscientious, and just plain fun to be around.
This was a high quality professional package, with a nice "at home" feel. It far surpassed everything I had expected. It fulfilled the memories of my hunts of youth, and we've decided to make this an annual event.
Thank you Anderson Outfitters!
Steve Bulthuis, my son Jake, and my dog Gabriel.
I checked off one of my "Bucket List" items in November 2011 as we headed to South Dakota for some wild pheasant hunting. It was a marvelous adventure and we are already scheduled for a return huny in 2012. I was able to hunt on thousands of acres of gorgeous country with some great folks. The dogs and I enjoyed hours afield and managed to bag our daily limit despite some very dry, windy, and cold weather.
This hunt far exceeded my wildest expectations! I never imagined seeing so many pheasants and experiencing the adrenaline rush of wild bird hunting!
The whole trip was truly memorable. We both came away with real respect and admiration for the ranch families we met. Their tough, self-reliant, independent spirit coupled with their warm and generous manner was simply amazing. Their efforts made this certainly the most memorable hunting experience of my life! I enjoyed every minute, as did our dogs.
We are looking forward to this fall and spending more great times at Anderson Outfitters.
