Will the birds be back? That’s the big questions thousands of hunters will be asking as they head¬† today for the opening of South Dakota’s 2014 pheasant hunting season.

We’re off to try again…

The Dakotas are dying…

My first trip to South Dakota was in 2000. I was stunned by the number of pheasants, grouse, and partridge I saw. In four hours of hunting we moved hundreds of wild birds – hundreds.
