    Video transcript: My name is Marshall Springer. I own, co-own and operate Buffalo Butte Ranch pheasant hunting operation in Gregory, SD. We’re truly a hands-on family business. The Springer Ranch was started back in the early 1900s by my great-grandparents. And in 2003, we decided to build the Buffalo Butte Lodge and convert our ranching operation into a pheasant hunting destination. Buffalo Butte Ranch is located in what’s known as the “Golden Triangle”. It’s an area located from Chamberlin, to Gregory to Winner and we’re pretty much right in the center of it. Having been a farmer all my life you know we’ve seen from year to year what it takes to make true pheasant habitat. And in that effort we’ve planted hundreds of acres of Nesting CRP. They’re specialty developed grasses and that helps ensure we have a good healthy population of wild pheasants on our ranch. The typical visit to the Ranch starts with the evening prior to the hunt. If it works out we like to have the hunters come in the night before and get to know them and they get to know us. The next morning after everybody’s geared up and ready to go, we will have a safety talk, which we do with every group. We have a bus and Suburbans that will take folks out to the fields, which is typically just a five minute drive from the lodge. One thing that stands out in any pheasant hunters mind is the flush of the wild pheasant. Nothing gets your heart rate going more than unexpected pheasants getting up at your feet or a dog flushing one 20 feet in front of you. Once you experience that, you’re hooked for life. And that’s what we try to expand upon every time hunters are here is just the habitat, the dogs everything put together to give guys a memorable experience out in the field. One unique thing about Buffalo Butte Ranch is our shooting range. We have a 25-yard plinking range for a .22 pistol. Right next to that we have a concrete shooting platform where we can shoot at targets that are ranged out to 100 yards, 200 yards and 300 yards. And then for a real test to a good shooter we have another concrete shooting bench that shoots back to a target at 1100 yards. Building the lodge was a true family effort. There’s personal touches all the way through it. The Lodge has eight bedrooms. Four on the upper level and four on the lower level; each bedroom has its own bathroom and shower. And it’s got a wrap-around deck with a great view to the surrounding prairie. The lower level is the game room where we have a pool table, shuffle board (which has been very popular). That is also where the mud room is to keep all your hunting gear. We have two Chalets we added on next to them, they’re a private two-bedroom where people can get away from the crowd of the lodge if they come with a larger group. It’s all set up with the hunter comfort in mind. One of the many things besides the pheasant hunting hunters talk about over and over is just how great the meals are at the lodge. Typical meals are prime-rib, steaks on a grill or pheasant. Our staff does a superb job of making sure no one goes away hungry. If you’re looking for a world-class pheasant hunt, give our 800 number a call and you’ll talk to either myself or my wife Colleen and we would love to visit with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have. We’d love to share our ranch with you. Show less
