About Me


I was born and raised in West Central Minnesota (Browns Valley). I'm married (Lisa), have 2 adult children (Katie & John), a grandson (Mason) and granddaughter (Kenadie). We moved to South Dakota in 2001. I have a black named Mya. Everyone in my family hunts with a rifle and shotgun (except Mya). I hunt with a bow & arrow. My wife hunted with a bow & arrow until she injured her shoulders at work. This spring she got a crossbow permit to allow her to hunt during archery season. I started hunting with a muzzle loader 4 years ago and I'm hooked. My wife and I started raising elk in 1995 (picture 23/100 of the big 6 X 6 bull is one we raised). We are out the elk business now, we sold our last elk in 2008. I worked in banking for about 25 years until 6-1-07 when I resigned as Market President at the bank in Rosholt and bought a local independent insurance agency. I am a dealer for Sims Vibration Laboratory Products (Limb Saver).

John's Late Season Archery Elk Hunt

Posted on November 23, 2008 at 2:59pm 1 Comment

I drew a late season archery any elk license for Custer State Park this year. Custer State Park is 71,000 acres of varying terrain and is has about 570 elk. South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks issues 50 licenses for late season archery in a lottery drawing with preference points for each year that you have applied. This year there were 2,007 applications for the 50 licenses. The success rate on this hunt is low. The elk have been chased around during the early archery season and firearms… Continue

Lisa's 2008 Elk Hunt

Posted on October 6, 2008 at 5:44pm 1 Comment

My wife Lisa drew an any elk firearms license for Custer State Park this year. This is a once in a lifetime license for South Dakota residents only. They give out 35 licenses in a lottery drawing with preference points for each year that you have applied. In 2008 there were 14,750 applications for the 35 licenses. Custer State Park is 71,000 acres of varying terrain and is has about 570 elk. We scouted for elk for 5 days in August and the day before the season opened. Lisa got her bull elk at… Continue

2008 South Dakota Antelope Hunt

Posted on September 11, 2008 at 12:04am 6 Comments

I haven't been archery antelope hunting since 1997. I just got back from a 5 day, unguided archery antelope hunt in Northwestern South Dakota with a couple of friends. The bucks weren't really rutting yet and there was too much water for waterhole hunting to be productive. We tried decoying, we tried stalking, we tried hunting from a blind. It turned out that stalking worked best on this hunt. We had a good time, we each had our opportunities and we got 2 bucks. Mine might make Pope &… Continue

Nice hunt photos John. I always enjoy photos from the hunt other than just the usual trophy shots. I've yet to hunt for pronghorns, but it is on my list.

Love the sky pic at the beginning of your slideshow! I can't ever resist taking pics of sunsets when the sun is shining like that.

Thanks for signing my guest book :-)

Thank you for the comments and the welcome. That hog was taken just out side of Tres Pinos, CA.
You have a great page and after looking at your photos, it looks like your boots are on the ground quite a bit!

Thanks. So what is the whitetail hunting like around you?
At 10:07am on February 2, 2009, John N Blank said…
Thanks for getting back to me. I would use rifle or ML. Would come out at what ever is the best time to be there. I just like to hunt in different places so if you have good whitetail around you we could talk about that too. Have wanted a good MD for a long time so that would be #1. Would like a privet land hunt with land owner input on how to hunt the land or hunt with him or some one that is all ready hunting it.
