KlM-GNA will be conducting a Prairie Camp with a gathering point at Ramkota Hotel located in Pierre, South Dakota. This is an informal gathering in some of the most productive grasslands in North America. South Dakota is #1 in the country for the harvest of wild pheasants. There is also a decent population of sharp-tails and prairie chickens in the area. There are thousands of acres of public hunting, including the Fort Pierre National Grasslands and many other walk-in areas, game production areas, and school and public lands. We also have access to private property on a fee basis on November 5th & 6th, reservations will be required.
We will plan to meet the evening of November 4th at the Ramkota Hotel, the event headquarters, for informal get together, a social hour and dinner from the menu. This would afford us the opportunity to discuss topics about the club and the dogs in a very informal setting. There are several good places to eat in or near Pierre, so we will leave November 6th open so groups can form and organize as they choose. Please feel free to arrive sooner or stay longer for more opportunities to hunt all other expenses will be the responsibility of the member.
Right now, we are just suggesting you do a couple of things:
- First, make your reservation at the Ramkota or any other hotel you choose. We have a block of 15 rooms reserved under the title, “KlM-GNA Hunting Dog Club” for $96 per night plus tax at the Ramkota until August 1. Let them know you are with the Club to get the best rate. The hotel reservation number is: 605-224-6877. Cancellations can be made prior to 4 PM one day before checking in without charge, so if the event has to be cancelled there is no loss to you. I recommend making your reservation as soon as possible.
- Let me know just by dropping me a quick email or text if you think you will be coming, if you might be interested in hunting the private property, if you have any ideas, or would like to help in any way. Official registration forms will follow later in the summer.
