Northstream isn’t a full service lodge, but we have great relationships with hotel owners in Murdo (9 miles away) and Pierre (40 miles away).  We will work with you to figure out what you are looking for after the hunt and build you a package or simply point you in the right direction.

What to Bring

We recommend a trusty 12 or 20 gauge shotgun.  You will want 2 ¾  or 3 inch 4’s or 5’s for early season hunts.  Once the snow starts flying and the birds start packing on a little winter fat, we recommend 3 inch shells in similar shot sizes.

A hunter orange hat or vest is also recommended.  Although not required by law, your friends in your hunting party need to see you at all times.

A good pair of hunting boots.  A comfortable pair of boots can make or break a trip.  We will cater your hunt to your physical condition, but this is a hunt and good boots are a must.

Brush pants or hunting chaps are a must.  We have a very diverse piece of land and you never know what we will be hunting.

South Dakota falls can be fickle.  It can be 75 and sunny one day and 30 and snowing the next.  Dress in layers.  Pack warm clothes and wear layers that can be shed during the days hunt.   If you want some recommendations on what to bring, we will gladly work with you on some of our tried and true favorites.

We take safety seriously.  We pride ourselves in providing safe and fun hunts.  We will work with every group to explain what we are doing, how we are hunting and what is a safe shot.  We will give you safety briefings before every hunt.  Unsafe gun handling is not an option during our hunts and safety is our top priority. Eye and ear protection are a must.
