About Wenzel's PHL

Family Owned and Operated for 30 Years

Wenzel's Pheasant Hills Lodge has been family owned and operated on the Wenzel family's third generation farm for over 30 year. It all started when Gary Wenzel started guiding hunts on the family farm and put forth a goal to create some of the best hunting habitat in South Dakota. With many happy hunters and years of success, Gary's son Clay now runs the lodge and continues to grow the Pheasant Hills Lodge operation to someday turn over to his sons.

Our Goal

Our goal is to create an all year round experience for both hunting and events such as family reunions and corporate retreats. From September to January our lodge is base camp for our pheasant, waterfowl and duck outfit that is the best South Dakota guide service available. The remainder of the year we aim to be your destination for corporate events, family reunions and more. We are excited to be your next destination that you will come back and visit year after year with your friends and family. 

Our Ground

Our ground consists of over 5,000 acres of prime private land in Wessington Springs, SD. We manage out land for both farming, cattle and out guiding outfit by creating prime habitat and food plots for an abundance of roosters and waterfowl as well as the giant bucks that call our land home. Over our 30 years of guiding we have perfected and continue to advance our habitat to be the best South Dakota hunting available.
