The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Game and Fish Department welcomes visitors who wish to hunt and fish on the Standing Rock Sioux Nation. The Nation covers approximately 1.6 million acres and is located in the states of North Dakota and South Dakota. Hunters who desire to hunt on tribal land will need a hunting license issued by the Tribe.

There might be confusion about the laws of our Tribe, but we want to make it clear about tribal law. If you wish to hunt on tribal land, you will need a tribal license. Regardless of what you are told by state authorities, the Tribe has authority over who hunts on tribal land.
