Many out-of-state hunters make their yearly track to White Lake to enjoy hunting South Dakota's state bird.  Combine that with the cooler temps and fall colors, the experience of walking the pastures and fields of White Lake, South Dakota is an experience no one will soon forget.  

Many South Dakotans love hunting and many of them open their farms and homes to allow others to come and enjoy this popular sport.  While pheasant hunting gets the most attention, there several other species to hunting, including duck, deer and more.  To learn more about hunting, visit South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks.
