NE-SD Firewater

Postby CDK » Mon Jan 14, 2008 7:54 pm

Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone knows how much land these guys have leased up in the last few years? We've hunted the area around there for years and this year we could not get on a single feild that had birds in it, we stopped at five different land owners and they all said that Firewater had it leased. Just wondering how far we'll have to move to get away from them? We did just fine hunting them on water but we like to get in a couple of good feild shoots also.

There west of Rosholt about five miles, north of cottenwood lake a few miles. I think there southern boys that guide up here. Maybe we just got unlucky and all the birds were working the feilds they have leased, but like I said we asked five differnent farmers and they were all leased by Firewater.

Do they hunt pheasants to or just waterfowl. I think it would be a tough go of it on just waterfowl with the lottery to get a license. Looked them up on the internet and a guy from ok is a guide i think he is on the avery prostaff. Those guys must have a bunch of money to make that work. They should make all guides be licensed that would cut down on the people just trying to make a quick buck and giving people bad experiences.

Yeah its a bunch of Avery guys, Justin Tacket the waterdog guy is involved with it, I think they specialize in waterfowl feild hunting. Can you guide on water in SD? Yeah I'd say they have some money backing them. On the team waterdog website they have a video clip with the heading Rosholt, SD, I hate when hunting shows give out locations.

Firewater is no longer operating as a commercial operation. Maybe this will help out freelancing in the area. Do you need a guide licenses to guide in South Dakota? I know you need one in Arkansas if you get caught guiding with out one your in some deep turd.

No you dont need to have licenense to guide in sd. I wish that they would change it and make it manditory. Would cut down on the people that are doing a bad job just to make a quick buck.
