My last trip to SD was in 2016, we always hunt just south of Pierre near the Missouri River. I prefer an O/U on upland game but I have taken an Auto along as well at times. Carry plenty of water and be prepared to walk, a lot! I also recommend chaps or brush pants like the others suggested. I can't add much else to what has already been said but I think the most important thing is to be mindful of the dogs, aka muzzle control at all times.

I don't like gloves while hunting (reduced dexterity), I am definitely in the 'hand warmers in the pocket' camp. If it's really cold I'll throw a thin glove on my support hand. We hope to return to SoDak next October for pheasant, it has been too long.

If you really want to score some points show up with a Winchester model 12, 28 inch barrel modified choke. You can find pretty good buys on Model 12's on the gunbroker type sites. If you think you need gloves try black disposable neoprene in moderate weather. Break in any new boats before you go.
11/4 oz fives or sixes.
