Small Game

The pheasant owns bragging rights to South Dakota hunting, but we are also home to some of the most popular small game hunting animals in the nation: mourning dove, cottontail rabbit, squirrel, sharptailed grouse, and more.

Don't limit yourself. Your South Dakota small game hunting license is your passport to all of these opportunities.
