South Dakota's Foremost Upland Hunting Destination

Lindskov Family Ranch – Family Owned for 83 Years

Started in 1934 by William James Lindskov, better known as Bill to everyone who knew him, the Lindskov Ranch is one of South Dakota’s largest and most diversified family farming and ranching operations. Bill passed on in 1981, but his legacy of sound ranching, farming and true-heartedness continues on in his son, Les Lindskov. With his wife, Marcia, and four sons, Monte and Mindy, Bryce and Tennile, Mark and Jess, and Todd and Marisa Lindskov, the ranch has thrived with cattle and wildlife. Over the years, the Lindskov’s have planted more than 105,000 trees and farmed cropland exclusively for wildlife habitat. With sound management the Lindskov Family has proven that farming, ranching and wildlife can all thrive as one.

The Lindskov Ranch is predominantly high plains grassland spread throughout Corson, Dewey, and Ziebach Counties in northwestern South Dakota. The breaks and draws of the Grand and Moreau Rivers and the vast never-ending grass flats make for some of North America’s best Sharptail Grouse and Hungarian Partridge hunting anywhere.

In addition the family farms many thousands of acres, growing alfalfa hay and small grain crops such as millet, milo, winter and spring wheat, garbanzo beans (chick peas), sunflowers and corn. These crops, spread in boundless quantities throughout the ranch, create some of the most spectacular Ringneck Pheasant hunting anywhere in the world. By leaving some of every crop un-harvested on the edge of all grain fields, the wildlife has flourished for  decades.
