The Rosebud Reservation is approximately one million acres of prime hunting grounds in southern South Dakota. The wide-open space means the perfect opportunity to use decoys. “I wasn’t going to put a decoy out, but this is a great location. Later during the hunt, I discovered I was bringing in big muleys with my whitetail decoy. I had no idea that would work, but glad it did as it made the hunt even more fun,” said Bachman.
This fall bow hunt is a tad unusual with warm weather and extremely muddy conditions. “Moving our blinds from one point to another was an adventure in of itself due to the wet roads, and we knew the bucks were out there thanks to pictures Ben had from his Cuddeback cameras. So it was just a matter of patience and perseverance,” added Bachman.
