15,000 acres in South Dakota on the banks of the Missouri River
for you to hunt, fish and explore. Enjoy the incredible views,
stalk your prey, ride the ranch and learn of the history of the
opening of the American West.
Experience the same unchartered territory along the Missouri
River that Lewis and Clark traveled in 1804 by visiting this famous
working ranch. This was also an early steamboat landing for boats
coming from Fort Sioux City upriver to Fort Pierre and beyond.
In the early 1900's Peter Heggestad found the whitened skull of
a mule embedded in a huge cottonwood tree, thus the name Mulehead
Ranch. Owned by the Jackson brothers from 1910 - 1925, they built
a two-story house, many outbuildings and increased the land holding
to the largest in the state at that time. The Mulehead Ranch headquarters
were purchased by the Haisch family in the early 1930's.
We enjoy sharing this beautiful and historic ranch with hunters,
families, fisherman, and welcome YOU to come stay in that same
two-story house and ranch headquarters where much of the history
began. Imagine yourself sitting in a rocker on the front porch
enjoying this view......it doesn't get much better than this!
