At Dakota 283 we live for opening day and so do our dogs. Watching our hunting companions chase a rooster, sharp tail grouse or any other game-of-the-day gives us as much joy as the hunt itself. Dakota 283 understands the love and trust you share with your hunting dog and we strive to make products that you would be proud to use with your best friend. That’s why our lines are designed and hardened at our South Dakota proving grounds. There, we stringently test for ease of use and lifelong durability so you can stay focused on the hunt and what matters. We are extremely demanding and until we’re 100% satisfied with a product’s performance, we won’t sell it. Everyone from the hardcore hunter to the weekend warrior looks to the Dakota 283 brand to deliver outstanding products that will perform anywhere adventure takes them. Join us in pursuit of great products or hunt the proving grounds.
