My family and I visited Rieger Creek for our yearly trip. What an incredible hunt. The guides were friendly and experienced. We limited out every hunt. Hunting aside, this was probably the best lodge I’ve stayed at. Plenty of entertainment, amazing food, and extremely comfortable. Thank you so much to everyone involved at Rieger Creek. Truly appreciated

I have hunted for over 60 years in many countries and I have never experienced better service and accommodations then that at Rieger creek. We hunted both preserve and wild birds, couldn’t really tell the difference. Guide and dogs were excellent. Owners went way out of their way to make sure we were more then satisfied. Would highly recommend.

What a shoot! Birds Birds Birds !! Guided by JB and hosted by Christine. We stayed at the "little lodge" an awesome 3 + bedroom on the creek right on the hunting ground. Pheasant literally walked onto our deck, I didnt get to my phone fast enough,so the picture doesnt really tell the story The little lodge is great for people like to do their own cooking. Everything youneed is right there, but that doesnt stop Christine from bringing by a nice lunch. JB our guide ( 4 of us) had three great dogs, was a true pro and a good guy to hang with. A true born and raised local he makes even a city slick like me feel right at home. Pick him you bring back the birds Hope to do the same thing next year. My complete compliments to our Host and Hostess and as many stars as allowed is my rating

Our group just finished our 3rd Annual trip to Rieger. As usual, Christine, Al, JB, Todd, and Teresa were amazing. The accommodations and food are always top notch. The 3 guides and their spectacular dogs make the hunt fun and rewarding. Don’t forget to get in a round of golf at JB’s golf course when you visit! See you next year!

Had an outstanding hunt this year at Rieger Creek Lodge. The facility is great and laid out to accommodate a large group. Limited out every day. The guides definitely knew what they were doing and planned our three day hunt perfectly. Been pheasant hunting in SD for over 30 years. Rieger Creek Lodge is among the best I’ve visited. Highly recommend.

We did not hunt at Rieger Creek this season. I am writing to tell everyone how wonderful, kind and helpful their staff are. We got stuck with our truck in the middle of no where! A wonderful man named AL who works at Rieger Creek showed up and Lord knows how he found us. He was truly a God Send. I also just want to tell the owners what a wonderful person they have working for them, how lucky they are. Once again, A BIG THANK YOU AL!!!! May God Bless you

Fall 2018 - Eau Claire, WI

2018 was our 5th year and was another great experience! In the past we had hunted at a number of SD lodges and Rieger Creek Lodge is the best. Everything from the guides, cover, lodging and over all attention to detail is next to none. We look forward to many more hunts at the lodge.

Found this gem three years ago and the hunting, guide service and owners keep us coming back. Looking forward to our fourth year this fall.

I just want to thank you so much for the best vacation/hunt we have ever had. If the guys didn’t thank me 10 times a day for setting this one up they didn’t at all. Everything was perfect, accommodations, location, personnel and of course your personality and presence. We will surely return!" Say hi to Steve, Al and Cheeks for us.

When I'm sitting in the lodge, I feel like I'm in the middle of a Terry Redlin painting. It's the perfect place if you're looking for an authentic South Dakota hunt.

When I come back I forget just how beautiful this place is… Steve and Christine are doing it right…

If I were to find out that I was going to die tomorrow, this is where I'd want to make my last stand.

Jim Stephans

President of Vilas Pharmacies & Healthcare Stores

During the last two pheasant seasons I have had the opportunity to hunt at the Rieger Creek Lodge at Selby, SD. The hunting was outstanding, providing quality pheasant hunting, all wild birds, a capable guiding staff & at the end of the day you can relax in the very well appointed lodge on the property. Pheasant hunting the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

Monte Shebelut

I believe that's the most pheasants I've seen in my life, and I've been hunting pheasants for 40 years.

Bob Rohr

Rittman, Ohio

The hunting, the guides, and everything about the lodge is top shelf, and Steve and Christine are wonderful people. I've thoroughly enjoyed my last two years, and am already looking forward next year.

Mark Perman

Stock Trader, Boston, Massachusetts

Having started a move east just over 20 years ago, I haven't gotten back to South Dakota nearly as much as I would like. I recently had the pleasure of spending some time at Rieger Creek Lodge and it reminded me of all the reasons I miss the place of my youth. Whether it be the calm evenings looking out on the creek with the sun setting while dining, or the crisp mornings watching deer and listening to pheasants cackle and ducks splashing around in the creek, the natural surrounding put on a show. The lodge couldn't be more comfortable with plenty of space and just a great setting. Steve and Christine provided everything needed for a very enjoyable stay. Not only is the staff very knowledgeable and helpful, but even more important are all the quality people. Nothing could be better!

This place is exactly what we were looking for.

I never thought I'd see this many pheasants in my lifetime.

This is the best kept secret in South Dakota.

Ken Broussard

President of Climate Controlled Containers Inc., Anchorage, Alaska

I have been hunting pheasants for 15 years in many different locations in Iowa and the Dakotas. My experience at Rieger Creek Lodge surpasses all of them. The accommodations over look Rieger Creek and is truly five star. The owners, Steve and Christine, are delightful hosts and go above and beyond all expectations to ensure hunters have a memorable experience. Big praises go to guides Al and Justin, and their dogs, Fawn, Fancy, and Rocky. My group spent five days hunting and never worked the same area twice, 20,000 acres gives the hunter many options.  I am returning again next year and probably many more to come.
