Custom Guided Hunts by Billy Burnette

About Us

Y Question Outfitters is based mainly in Mellette County (South Central) South Dakota. We own or lease close to 40,000 acres in our fifth generation family ranch.

For those who enjoy the beauty of remote and untamed land, we are your guides. White River, SD is the closest town at a 40 minute drive, ensuring you a private retreat from the world and allowing you to focus on your hunting!

Billy Burnette, owner, provides professional guide services for all hunts. He has been a professional guide for nearly 30 years in five states, returning to his home in 2007.

If you are looking for a good time with friends and an experience to remember come with us! These services provide you with the most exclusive, private, and custom hunts available in the area, perfect for the ultimate retreat from the modern world and intrusions.


Y Question offers customized hunts in Prairie Dog, Mule Deer, White Tail Deer, Antelope, Turkey, Coyote, Pheasant, Hungarian Partridge, and Sharptail Grouse. We also cater hunts for Rifle, Muzzleloader, and Archery.

We have begun Prairie Dog hunts as of 2007. If you want to shoot varmints, you'll find some of the best land anywhere! We have even hunted them with open sight muzzleloaders! Bring plenty of ammunition! Each hunt is fully customized to your needs and size of the party, please call for your customized pricing!


We strive to meet the needs and interests of our clients, so please contact us directly for pricing. Because of how remote we are, we prefer to work out a package deal that includes meals at the ranch so you can get right back out to hunt and have less time travelling.


General Small Game, Varmint, and bird (except turkey) licenses can be purchased from South Dakota Game Fish & Parks or from the Gus Stop II in White River.

Limited Big Game licenses (Turkey, Deer, & Antelope) can also be purchased online from the Game Fish and Parks. Please note the county is Melette (#50). Contact us to apply as a group to get landowner preference. Otherwise make sure to apply by the first drawing dates.


You'll never go hungry at the Burnette Ranch! We provide good home cooked meals on most of our big game hunts. Nothing tastes better on the wide open prairie than a home cooked meal with all the fixings. There are few that can match Gina's good Southern home cooking!


Ask about our deluxe package where you stay at the ranch and enjoy our hospitality for the duration of your hunt!

Enjoy down home hospitality in between your hunts as you are treated as part of the family.

For those interested in staying off the Ranch, the closest hotel is in White River, SD at the Thoroughbred lodge, 52 East 2nd Street, White River, SD 57579. Phone Number: 605-259-3349


To contact us, call Billy or Gina at 605-259-3060 or 605-208-3000. All hunts require a non refundable deposit to reserve your date on the calendar. You can also email us at reservations@yquestionoutfitters.com to request dates, arrange for deposits, or request more information.
