Harvest SD

Hunt - Cook - Share 

Welcome to Harvest South Dakota! Thank you for your interest in these classes!

Harvest South Dakota is a comprehensive multi-class series for novice hunters and anglers with an emphasis on ethics, stewardship, community, and quality local food.  These classes provide students with the skills to hunt or fish, process, and cook their quarry.

Here is a run down regarding who these classes are for and what is needed for registration:

  • Novice hunters and/or anglers of 18+ years of age.
  • Students who are dedicated to attending all course work established during registration.
  • Students will be asked to purchase their own hunting/fishing licenses.
  • All students in the specifically hunting series will have to pass a preliminary background check in order to handle firearms.

Harvest SD is a class series designed for any adult with little to no prior hunting experience that would like to learn how to scout, hunt, shoot, process and cook their own wild game. The class provides an emphasis on harvesting quality, locally-sourced food and makes hunting accessible to diverse audiences without any prior experience. We provide a non-threatening environment, a sense of community, and a lot of fun. Students who complete the class series will have the opportunity to participate in a supported hunt. This class is also an excellent way to prepare students for the new apprentice deer license.
