Bad River Ranch

Ranch Manager: Dusty Hepper

Located in central South Dakota, Bad River Ranch totals 141,357 acres and features native grassland with rolling hills. The Bad River runs through the property; the mouth of which is where Lewis and Clark met the Teton Sioux.

Bad River is home to several species of wildlife including bison, whitetail and mule deer, pronghorn, elk, bobcats, mountain lions, coyotes, foxes, raccoons, skunks, prairie dogs, badgers, hawks, eagle, owls, pheasant, grouse, prairie chickens, turkeys, and a variety of song birds. The Turner Endangered Species Fund (TESF), reintroduced the swift fox onto the ranch, and also supports a black footed ferret project. Environmental projects on the property focus on reducing levels of erosion and siltation into the Bad River and Missouri River. Outfitting opportunities include deer, antelope, bison, turkey and prairie dog hunts.
