Activities & Amenities
This amazing 458± acre property is in east-central South Dakota, the heartland of great hunting and fishing. The Silver Creek Ranch offers so much more than a beautiful setting and wonderful recreational amenities. The property has been run as a private hunting retreat with emphasis on pheasants and white-tailed deer. Additionally, the property could be a productive agricultural operation. There are miles of established tree belts and a pond to add to the beauty and outstanding habitat. Approximately 338 acres are enrolled in the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP). This program offers landowners the opportunity to protect, restore, and enhance wetlands on their property and establish long-term conservation and wildlife practices. The 120 acres not enrolled in WRP consists of tree belts, cropland and a homesite for future improvements. The ranch also has a 990 foot flowing artesian well that was tested at 60 gallon per minute. Explore the endless possibilities including country living, hunting resort or family retreat.

They are home to a beautiful lake, and offer many recreational opportunities, with peaceful and friendly small-town living. During the hunting season large numbers of hunters fly in and enjoy the freedom that South Dakota can offer. Hours of hunting can be spent around the countryside of Woonsocket chasing pheasant, deer, coyote, duck, and geese.
The diverse landscape of The Silver Creek Ranch is characterized by an assortment of habitats and an abundant array of natural resources. For many outdoor enthusiasts, no other wildlife species in the state is as recognized or valued as the ring-necked pheasant. Though pheasants are not a native species to North America, they have become naturalized to this mosaic of grassland, wetlands and agricultural land habitat found on this property. From the first successful releases of pheasants in 1908 to the current estimated population of around 7 million birds, South Dakotans and our visitors have built a rich and deeply rooted tradition around pheasants and pheasant hunting. The opening weekend in October is an event anticipated not only by pheasant hunters, but also family and friends who are reunited during this social gathering.
South Dakota is one of the top pheasant harvest states and claims the top number of birds per hunter per season. Sanborn County and The Silver Creek Ranch are regarded as one of the best pheasant hunting spots in the nation, a position it has maintained for decades. You will also find an abundance of white-tailed deer as well as ducks and geese.
If you enjoy fishing, plentiful supplies of fish can also be found on the James River which is only 2 miles to the east.
