BIG BEND RANCH

Big Bend Ranch was the first, and at one point the only, wingshooting lodge in South Dakota to be Orvis endorsed. It is the high caliber hunting experience provided by Big Bend that has attracted cultivated sportsmen from all over the world for over 50 years.

Since 1992 Big Bend Ranch has been owned and operated by the Falk Family. In the mid 2000’s Big Bend shifted gears to focus primarily on the farming operations.

After graduating college, eldest son, Nick Falk, returned to Big Bend to oversee the family’s farming operations. With a passion for hunting realized at an early age, Nick is excited to reinstate Big Bend to its former glory and take advantage of its unparalleled terrain and hunting opportunities.
