On the historic Elm River in northeastern South Dakota, Pine Shadows Daybreak provides a secluded experience with abundant wild game throughout its ten square mile estate. You will be guided by the veteran Pine Shadows huntsmen and their expertly trained English Springer Spaniels. The knowledge, skill and friendliness of this guide team will ensure a safe and productive adventure as you pursue ring-necked pheasants on six thousand contiguous acres of private, professionally managed habitat.
Pine Shadows was initially recognized in 2003 with the Orvis endorsement of their hunting dog program. Last year, Pine Shadows Daybreak was among the first properties in North America selected to become an Orvis endorsed wingshooting grounds.
Become your part of the history of this expanse where many eons ago dinosaurs hunted, for centuries American Indians had winter villages beside the river, the Hudson Bay Company located their southernmost agency in the early 1800s, several homesteading families worked the land, and the very place where the Chinese Ring-necked Pheasant was first introduced in South Dakota over a hundred years ago.
We invite you and your sporting friends to "Meet at Daybreak". Enjoy the thrill, adventure, and memory making of an all-inclusive upland bird hunt this fall at Daybreak. You can choose to stay on site in our comfortable lodge or we will shuttle you from your area motel.
