Understand that the guide program on the Rosebud is somewhat relaxed. Instead of having to hire a guide (Bell Hop) the tribe has designated a few thousand acres for unguided shooters. Believe the area is in Todd County.

Wonder if any readers have shot the unguided area this year? Dogs if any. Any "guides" give you problems? See where the price of a non resident license is $100...Yikes, when I first started shooting the Rosebud the license fee was $10. Yikes again. DG

I assume that this is the Rosebud Indian reservation near Pierr (spelling) SD?
If so, I surely would like to get up there sometime for the PD's

South Dakota does have some of the best PD shooting in the country. Tood County and Mellitt county are the boundries of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. This reservation is located south of Rt. 90. Another great shooting area is the Zibach County and Dewey County which are the boundries of the Cheyenne Sioux Tribe. Supposed to have the largest population of PD's in the country. I've shot both places. You'll have to schedule a trip out there and have at it.

Go on line and Google in Rosebud and you can request an informatonal packet for shooting PD's. Again, you should plan a trip out. DG

I haven't shot the "unguided" area, but I did shoot the Rosebud in June. I use Wes Colombe's service there in Mission (4th trip up there for me). We talked to several locals while eating at the Antelope Inn's restaurant, and they said the shooting was pretty good up there, at least, there were lots of dogs.......
I like Wes' service, but he only guides during May/June, then goes back to work (his phrasing, not mine) With a guide, the license is $35+ $2.50 handling charge. Wes owns the Maverick Motel, and his fee is $375, for two days shooting, three nights in the motel. He furnishes a counterfeit copy of the BR pivot bench, and his guides know the area really well. I don't think you can beat that deal with a stick. Wes has always put us into dogs really well, and he's a fun guy to BS with, and his guides are top notch.
