About Paradise Outfitters
South Dakota Hunting Guides

Paradise Outfitters was started by, and is owned and operated by Wayne & Diane Henderson, and their three sons, Cody, Danny, and Brandon. Paradise Outfitters specializes in premier upland game bird hunting, rifle & archery deer hunting, and guided archery antelope hunting in Northwestern South Dakota.

Although South Dakota has long been known for its fantastic ringneck pheasant hunting, many sportsman have discovered that West River South Dakota has an wonderful diversity of birds and big game, all in one area. Many times, upland game and big game will be observed, and can be hunted, all on the same day, and in the same area.

About Our Hunting Ranch: Paradise Outfitters is located in Northwestern South Dakota, near the borders of North Dakota (10 miles), and Montana (60 miles). The majority of the hunting is done on their private ranch, which has been in the same family for 100 years. All hunts are personally guided by the owners. They sell a very limited number of hunts each year to keep the quality of your outdoor experience unforgettable, and a memory that you will cherish for years to come. Their goal is to “Provide you with the most enjoyable, relaxed outdoor experience possible – with an emphasis on service, abundance & diversity of game – all in one place”. The service, accommodations, meals and wildlife you will experience will leave a lasting impression that we hope will be etched forever in your fondest memories, and returning with us as a good friend.

Because we are a small, personalized outfitter, many hunts can be custom tailored to fit your age, physical limitations, and time and schedule restraints. Because South Dakota has long, liberal , hunting seasons, they can customize your hunt to meet your needs. You and your party will be the ONLY HUNTERS on this private ranch during your stay, so booking a hunt later in the season has no effect on quality of your hunt with Paradise Outfitters.

About Your Outfitter: Your outfitter, Wayne Henderson, has been an avid hunter, trapper, and sportsman all his life. Some of his fondest memories include hunting with his father at a very early age, his wife Diane’s first big game hunt, and predator calling with his sons. This tradition continues today with his wife, sons, and grandchildren, all being avid outdoorsmen.

Wayne is a lifetime member of The Foundation of North American Wild Sheep, and The National Rifle Association, and also has or has had memberships with Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep Society, The Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society, and the Grand Slam Club. He believes strongly in giving back to the sport that has been so instrumental in shaping his life. He has donated multiple hunts to FNAWS-National Chapter, FNAWS- Minnesota-Wisconson Chapter, FNAWS- Eastern Chapter, The Arizona Desert Bighorn Sheep Society, and Safari Club International NW Michigan Chapter.

He has volunteered his services to Hunt Of A Lifetime, and works with the local conservation officer to take disabled veterans, and kids that need someone to take them hunting, and experience what the outdoor world has to offer. Wayne was formally a Hunter Education Instructor in North Dakota and strongly believes that our youth is our hunting future and strives to give them the opportunity to hunt along with teaching them about conservation, fair chase, and the overall outdoor experience. Through his donations and efforts, hopefully his children, grandchildren, and generations to come, will be able to experience the great outdoors, and preserve our hunting heritage and the right to keep and bear arms.
