Ringneck pheasants have made South Dakota famous over the last 67
years since the first season was introduced, since then it is still one
of the state's greatest social and family traditions. Hunting them is
done in the traditional style alternating walkers and blockers behind
well-seasoned gun dogs, both shooters having excellent opportunities at
fast flying roosters. Habitat is a mixture of 2,400 acres of chest high
prairie grasses and alfalfa, blended with endless food plots of milo,
millet, corn and sunflowers. Throughout five generations, shelterbelts
of Russian Olive, cedar, juniper, cottonwood, and plum trees have also
been planted and provide the ideal winter habitat and protection for
all kinds of wildlife.
You can expect to see hundreds if not thousands of wild pheasants everyday
during your hunt. Sharp-tail grouse, Hungarian Partridge and the greater
prairie chicken also inhabit these same areas and make great bonus birds.
