South Dakota Prepares For Pheasant Season


Thousands of hunters are preparing for the start of the pheasant season at noon Saturday.

The Game, Fish and Parks Department expects the pheasant population to be down slightly from last year's count, which was the largest in 20 years. Wet, cool weather in June affected nesting.

Just over 164,000 residents and nonresidents hunted last year. The Game, Fish and Parks Department predicts a similar turnout this year.

GF&P regional supervisor Dave McCrea in Pierre says most hunters follow the rules and hunt safely, but he says there are too many cases of hunters drinking alcohol in the field.
