South Dakota pheasants

#1 Post by t.r. » Mon Oct 22, 2018 5:58 pm


My brother and I had a great time going after pheasants last weekend. My 12 gauge load is high brass #5 shot and modified choke. It works well when I do my part.

We saved up for this trip.

When fixed properly, pheasant is delicious. Fun to hunt and good to eat. That can describe a lot of things.

Wow..good for you. Looks like nice weather your having.

Pheasants used to be like flies around here back in the sixties and seventies. Then the game commission dropped the bounty on foxes and made it a seasonal thing...have not seen a pheasant in twenty years.---6

That's great! Nothing like a good walk in the fields with a dog or 2, then the flush! Boy how I enjoy bird hunting!

Looks like a GREAT Day..Congratulations.
Y'all got REALLY lucky weather-wise to be out there in T-shirts, the 3rd weekend in October...!!!!
When I was up that way, this time of year...a foot of snow on the ground, temps. in the 20-30 degree range and a 30 mph wind was an average day.
That was OK though...the real bad weather didn't come until January.
