Pheasant Hunt, South Dakota Style

It may seem like the focus is on the whitetail rut but don’t forget this time of year offers some good opportunities for dusting off the shotgun too! Traditional Pheasant Season is going on now through January 31st, 2022, and South Dakota is known to have the most birds in the country with millions of acres of free-access public lands to hunt! It’s got me seriously thinking about booking a cheap flight out from Oregon to test the fields and get my boots on the ground.

Picture this: You, your favorite hunting buddy, a good bird dog, and more action than you know what to do with. It’s these kinds of hunting adventures that make me want to call a few friends and put the planning to work!

As with any other year, my mission is to look ahead for a new hunt, a new species, or a new place to make lifelong memories in the outdoors. This year with South Dakota leading an initiative to get more women outdoors, I am strongly considering crossing all three off the list with one pump. (See what I did there? So witty!)

Hunting brings us together. It’s a human tradition. It's the connection to nature, the adrenaline of the hunt, the satisfaction of eating the game you bag: it’s our shared legacy. And while pheasant hunting has always been a part of South Dakota’s story, they’re making the next chapter even greater. Welcoming all types of hunters and boosting sports women's voices: that’s a legacy to stand the test of time.
