Services OverviewThe Hunt
Your hunt will start with a safety demonstration at the lodge, followed by a round of sporting clays so that everyone can get comfortable with their guns. Then it's off to the hunt. The morning usually consists of hunting three or four fields. Professional guides and dogs will accompany you in the field. The enthusiasm that the Labrador Retrievers bring to the field is contagious, and it isn't long before you find yourself completely caught up in the moment. That first rooster flush always makes your heart race and brings a smile to your face! Following the morning hunt, we head back to the Lodge for a hearty soup and sandwich lunch and then it is back to the fields! On the afternoon hunt you will hunt new fields and your guides will help you achieve your daily bag limit. Then it's back to the Lodge for photos, relaxation, and the camaraderie of friends. We invite you to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere that Eagle Pass Lodge is known for.The Lodge

Hunting Pheasants at Eagle Pass Ranch
A traditional South Dakota pheasant hunt has between 12 and 18 hunters in a group with 8 to 12 “walkers” and 4 to 6 “blockers”. Two non-shooting guides will accompany the walkers, work their dogs and carry pheasants shot by the hunters. A third guide will drive the bus, help position the blockers and retrieve the end shots. Walkers and blockers may alternate during the hunt. Walkers will move slowly through the corn fields or milo strips allowing the dogs time to traverse the strip and flush the wild pheasants, or push them towards the blockers. Be prepared for “explosions” of nervous pheasants all taking flight at the same time.
Eagle Pass Lodge was built in 2006 as a modern facility with all the rustic charm of the prairie. Evident from the moment you step in the door, the lodge has been carefully constructed with one main goal in mind, relaxation. Upon arrival at the lodge our Concierge will direct you to a comfortable double occupancy room. Private rooms are available for an extra fee. Complete with soft queen size beds, feather pillows, down comforters and a private bath, this home away from home lends itself to an enjoyable nights sleep, getting you ready for your days in the field. Each room is wired for high speed internet as well as wireless internet being available throughout the lodge.

Eagle Pass Lodge is a family owned company. Steve and Debi Munger own and operate the business. The family roots go back to their ancestor's 1882 homestead. Being native to South Dakota deepens their respect for the tradition and camaraderie of pheasant hunting.
The family also owns and manages the 12,000-acre Eagle Pass Ranch, a world-renowned breeder of registered cattle. Eagle Pass Ranch has been cited annually as one of the top 25 cattle breeding operations in the US. Much of Eagle Pass Ranchs work is still done on horseback.
A portion of the Lodge itself is a restored 1920 circa horse barn, originally built to house eight teams of horses. In 2006 the horse barn transformed into a luxurious 15,000 square ft. lodge complete with movie theater, spa, and several social areas. Take a stroll outside and you will find a par 3 executive golf course, tennis court, 5-stand sporting clays, and a well stocked bass pond.
In 2000, a 1,600-acre parcel of the Ranch was designated for wildlife habitat enhancement. This enhancement plan has added or restored four miles of tree belts, 300 acres of nesting habitat, five waterways with ponds, and strategically placed food plots. The habitat management has proven to be an ideal setting for wild pheasant production and assures a large crop of wild pheasants each season.
