We think we have what you are looking for. A great hunt, comfortable rooms, all at an affordable price.

We are family owned and operated. Started by Marvin Mills in 1990, and joined by his son-in-law Wes in 2005. Resulting in many years of successful pheasant hunting. The bird numbers along with our excellent habitat preservation keep our hunters coming back year after year. The old stands of cedar along with newly planted shelter belts will ensure wildlife habitat for years to come.

Excellent hunting, beautiful scenery, and good fellowship will result in a productive and memorable experience for you and your group.

All the Best...

Current News:

Many of you are asking about the drought this summer and how it might affect this years hunt. Although it has been very dry this summer we feel that we are lucky to have missed the worst of it. We had some timely rains in June and July and plenty in August. Northern SD, ND and MT were very dry.

While the bird numbers might be down a bit this year compared to last year, it's still going to be a good year because bird numbers were so high the last couple years. Gone are the days of fifteen years ago when it seemed all you had to do was walk into the field awhile and you had your limit. Now a days you have to hunt for them and our guys like that much better. Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see that again but coming up with strategy to find birds is a challenge I don't mind. Expect a typical day of hunting to be about 6 1/2 hours, and that is the physical limit of most hunters. And 90% of the time last year we got our limit.

Our food plots are looking good this year after a slow start. We added a few and changed the mixture of plants in some. We rely on our food plots quite a bit. Still going to be hitting the evergreen shelter belts, sloughs and grassy areas too. With the dry conditions early, we were able to cut some of our CRP fields and that will help us as the birds will be congregated to half the field instead of the whole thing.

These are Wes's dogs living at home. Rex, Copper and all her puppies. Pups are six months old in picture and are off to a good start hunting and learning obedience. We'll find out which ones work together the best and rotate them accordingly.

"What an awesome experience! Value! Mills Pheasant Hunt does not have a big lodge (low overhead) hence they are able to offer an affordable world class experience... Marv and Wes treated us like family. We never hunted the same place twice... We got our limit of birds every day and Marv and Wes' dogs are awesome... I will be hunting with Wes and Marv again!"
