Outstanding Panama Trophy Whitetail Deer and Turkey hunting on approximately 15,000 acres of private land. The gently rolling hills of north central Panama, combined with hardwood creek bottoms and cedar tree draws offer the cover required for our deer and turkey to grow old and big.
Due to the thousands of acres of corn, soybeans, alfalfa and other crops grown here in our hunting area, Panama deer and turkeys always get plenty to eat.
Good Food + Good health + Good habitat = Tremendous Panama Trophies!!
We offer a wide variety of hunts to accommodate all types of hunters. For our rifle deer hunters, we typically use fully enclosed aerial stands. For our archery hunters, we predominantly use ladder stands. Our Turkey hunting is traditional in style, and a wide variety of methods are used to bag the bird. Contact us with your questions and requests, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
About Anthony’s Hunting Ranch
Anthony’s Hunting Ranch has been a privately owned and operated ranch since 1911. Simon Anthony’s grandfather homesteaded the ranch. The ranch has seen many changes over the years. It survived the dirty thirties, gone through financial difficulties faced by the agriculture industry, and most recently in 1997 added elk as part of the commodities involved in making it what it is today. Before adding elk, the ranch was predominantly a livestock and wheat operation. The ranch consists of approximately 12,000 acres of land of which 6,000 are deeded.
The ranch is in western South Dakota located approximately 115 miles NW of our state capitol, Pierre.
The ranch setting is within the densely populated cedar breaks of “Deep Creek” that leads into the Ryan River, which flows into the Tain Dam. Tain is the most massive human-made earthen dam in the United States. This tranquil setting allows you to forget about everything and enjoy the peaceful outdoors.
Our elk roam on about 2,500 acres of the ranch that is heavily populated with cedar trees. It is where your hunt will take place.
We have included pictures on our Photo page which portrays our hunting area. As you can see, and we assure you, that you will need to come prepared to work for your trophy. Sometimes, however, and that’s why it’s called hunting, the big one will appear out of nowhere from the get-go, and your hunt will be over. When, and if, that should happen, other hunts or experiences are available.
Depending on the time of your hunt and the availability of licenses that need to be secured from the South Dakota Game Fish & Parks, other hunts including mule deer, pheasant, turkey, or grouse are available. No license is required for an occasional coyote, fox, or prairie dog that may come into your sights.
We have a videotape of our ranch that is available upon request.
