Looking for some suggestions for an upland hunt this fall. My customers and I hunt in Kimball, SD every year typically in corn, milo, cane etc. we all have pointing dogs and were thinking about finding somewhere else to hunt and let the dogs run and hold some points. Customers are located in MN and Kansas City so preferably looking for a place in the upper Midwest. Not looking for anyone's spot just some general recomendations on areas or places we can look into further. Thanks for the help.

Either or on private vs public as long as private would let us run our own dogs

Valentine, Nebraska. Best of the the sandhills. Pretty country, both prairie chickens and sharptails.
Montana above the highline (North of the northern railine, near the Canadian border. Sharptails and huns. Montana towns include Glasgow, Plentywood, Scobey. Pierre, SD. Sharptails and chickens. (Pierre is a zoo -- bird hunters from all over the country converge on it opening week. Birds are very educated --accommodations and restaurants are better than other towns. Montana has lots of accessible land thru different programs. Valentine has a national forest and wildlife refuge that is huntable but you need steel shot. Also, there is a lot of ranch land you can access by asking. You need to get out of the crops and hunt crp and pasture near the crops. You may not see as many birds but it is much better for dogs--fewer runners. Also, Kansas has a very good walkin program. You can get into pheasants in crp near crops and in some parts of the state (especially the flint hills, quail. If you go to Kansas, you want to go in November while birds still hold in grass.

Be sure to take dog boots or duct tape to make them. Don't be afraid to ask for permission to hunt sharptails. The motel on the south side Valentine is dog friendly, has a corral for horses where you can stake out and feed dogs. The sand hills are special--you will like that country.
Lots of water, lots of alfalfa grown in low areas--you can hunt slopes above alfalfa in am and move into the alfalfa in the pm.
