    Hi,

    I've been thinking about a very quick blitzkrieg trip to South Dakota, to hunt roosters. I've never hunted SD before and I'm totally in the dark about public access lands in the western part of the state. I was thinking I might drive over and try to hunt just inside the SD/Montana border, or somewhere near Rapid City.
    Or maybe father east towards Pierre? I could really use some good suggestions on this.

    Thanks,
    Cliff

    Drive across the state line, stop at the first house and ask.
    You will be rewarded.

    And if you've been given permission to hunt private land, take great care to be an excellent guest. Then send the landowner(s) who've given you access to their property a box of See's chocolates or something along that line as a thank you after you return home. Believe me, it goes a long way to building lasting relationships.

    Adams and I've been thinking about putting something together like this, especially since grouse has been so bad this year around here. I'd be interested in seeing the results!

    Thanks to all of you for your suggestions. If I do follow thru with this I will make sure I report back.
