Outdoors International donated this South Dakota pheasant hunt through the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. Dan Wolfe, from Indiana bought the hunt at the auction and brought six of his friends. We would like to thank Dave Brucken of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
The Wolfe group had a ton of fun on their pheasant hunt!We had a lot of fun on this hunt, and the hunting was smoking hot! Just look at that pile of birds in that picture! Not only was the pheasant hunt fun, these guys knew how to party. LOTS of beer was consumed to say the least. That didn’t effect their shooting though. Everybody got their limit every day.
We hunted birds for three days and since most of the corn was already cut, there were pheasants everywhere! It was the perfect South Dakota pheasant hunt. We had some corn strips near the farmhouse that had hundreds of birds in them. With ten people hunting, our limit was thirty birds a day, and everybody shot well so it was a blast! Another highlight of the trip was the food. One night, my dad made Dutch Oven pheasant and crab dinner for us… That was some good stuff.
There is something to be learned from this trip. Everybody wants to hunt the opening day of pheasant season, but often the corn is still up and the birds are hard to get to. By the third week, corn is usually coming down, weather is still nice and the birds are MUCH easier to hunt. It is easier to find an open date further into the season as well.
These guys already booked the same week for next year. We’re filling up fast, so if you want to come, give us a call or send us an email.
