Taylor Guide Service is located in south central South Dakota. The nearest towns are Winner, Gregory, and Chamberlain. These three towns make up what some people call the "Pheasant Triangle" or the "Golden Triangle". My great grandfather Leonard Taylor homesteaded this land in South Dakota in 1904. That is where the name Taylor Guide Service comes from. The farm has remained in the family since 1904. Our farm is one of 2,403 South Dakota farms to be recognized as a Century Farm. I have been hunting pheasants on this land since 1970. I have tried to create a hunting experience similar to the hunting experiences I enjoyed as a kid. After seeing hunting lodges pop up on every corner in the last 20 years, I saw a niche for an old fashioned pheasant hunt.
We specialize in old fashioned wild pheasant hunts. This is not a "canned" hunt. It is a true privilege to be able to shoot a wild pheasant in today’s world. Every wild pheasant taken should be taken with the ultimate of respect. Please refer to the Pheasant Facts page for a better understanding of what a wild pheasant has to endure over the course of just one year.
We have taken the commercialization out of the hunt and we are dedicated to hunting wild pheasants only. We don’t have a lodge or provide some of the other frills associated with commercialized hunting. This keeps our costs down. I can assist you with your lodging needs and there are several options available. Please refer the Lodging page for more information.
This is a true wild pheasant hunt. I only hunt small groups and only one group at a time. We hunt different land every day and with different types of cover. We allow all the land plenty of time to rest in between hunts. Please refer to the Hunt Info page for more information on the hunting.
