Our passion pure and simple is wild pheasant hunting. Hands down, South Dakota has the best wild pheasant hunting in North America. Dakota Wild at ToriLil Farm was created to be the ultimate pheasant hunting honey hole. We are located in Lyman County in the coveted South Central pheasant belt of South Dakota near the town of Presho. Presho is located approximately 35 miles south of Pierre, and 35 miles west of Chamberlain. Lyman County is consistently ranked among the top pheasant producers in the state. Hunters harvest more pheasants in Lyman County than any other county in the state. We typically see at least 500-800 wild pheasants each time we go hunting. This is something every pheasant hunter should experience at least once in his or her lifetime. We have a very loyal following and some of our hunters have been coming to our farm for more than 15 consecutive years.
Dakota Wild® at ToriLil Farm, LLC exists for one reason – to provide the best wild pheasant hunting experience for the bird hunter. Our hunts are not for beginners. Wild pheasants are fast and fly hard and present a challenging target.
We provide really wild pheasant hunting. Our hunters experience traditional wild pheasant hunting in wide open prairie grass fields enhanced with food plots, shelter belts, draws, cattail sloughs and accompanied by close working, hard charging flushing labs searching for roosters, all for one purpose: to create the hunt of a lifetime, memories that will live forever, bonds of friendship that grow deeper, and an unbridled desire to come back and do it again. And those images of the striking South Dakota landscape with dozens of pheasants in the air will last forever.
Our business has been built on our reputation for great hunting. While we have many repeat customers and some groups have been coming to our farm for 15 or more consecutive years, we always enjoy meeting new sportsman and sharing our unique hunting experience with them.
One of my favorite stories was told to me by a hunter who had visited our farm for the first time. He said that he was talking to a guy back at the motel who asked him if he had seen a hundred pheasants that day. Apparently, this other hunter was hunting with another outfit and had not done too well. Our hunter paused and said, “Which flush?” He had seen a hundred birds at one time in one flush and had seen over 1,000 birds that day on our farm.
