Located north of Highmore, in central South Dakota, Daybreak Ranch consists of 8,000 private acres of native grassland, CRP, cropland, wetland sloughs, food plots and tree plantings. Daybreak Ranch is primarily used as a family ranching and farming operation but habitat is managed with interest in nurturing wildlife. Wildlife consists of pheasants, sharptail grouse, prairie chickens, hungarian partridge, ducks, coyotes, antelope, fox, whitetail and mule deer.



Daybreak Ranch is not a pheasant hunting preserve, this is the real deal. You will shoot wild roosters as well as sharptail grouse and prairie chicken as bonus birds during the wild bird season. No released birds here!



One of many attractions of pheasant hunting at Daybreak Ranch is the ability for you to build your own hunting party consisting of family, friends or hunting buddies. We do not mix groups of hunters unless requested, providing you a more enjoyable hunting experience. In fact, with 8,000 private acres available to hunt, it is unusual to see another hunter on the ranch while you are in the field hunting.



If you have experienced hunting dogs, whether they are retrievers, pointing dogs or flushing dogs, you are welcome to bring them or we have dogs available. Should you bring your own bird dogs, please disclose the dog's abilities and training. Dogs brought into South Dakota are required to have a health certificate from your local veterinarian indicating all shots are up to date and is a disease free animal. Should you have questions concerning these requirements, call the Animal Industry Board at (605) 773-3321.


Continuing in their quest for excellence, Daybreak Ranch has teamed up with Gordon Sampson to offer guided archery whitetail hunts with the possibility of future gun hunts. 2,500 acres of Daybreak Ranch's 8,000 acres are devoted exclusively to whitetail deer archery hunting. All photos were taken at Daybreak Ranch, Hyde County, South Dakota.



Gordon has spent the past 30 years guiding archery hunts in Montana as Mossy Horn Outfitters and this new partnership along with his return to his South Dakota roots has given him the opportunity to keep pursuing his love of whitetails.



Growing up as a South Dakota prairie boy, he started archery hunting back in the 1960’s harvesting his first whitetail as an archer in 1962. Since then, Gordon has been an avid whitetail hunter and guide helping others to achieve a quality hunting experience pursuing their dreams of harvesting that big mature buck with nearly 100 Pope and Young class deer, elk and antelope as proof of his expertise and experience.



In order to have that measure of success, he has spent literally thousands of hours studying and patterning whitetails, honing his knowledge and skills to give his clients the best opportunity for success. Portable tree stands, ladder stands, tri-pod stands, elevated permanent stands and blinds, natural blinds and even pit blinds have all been used getting his clients in range of those big bucks.



Gordon’s philosophy is “If you want a big buck, you’re better off hunting an area for 10 minutes that has big bucks than hunting 2 weeks in an area where there are no big bucks.”
