Tim Kessler readily admits South Dakota's pheasant hunting is at a critical point in state history.
"We're getting close to a tipping point in habitat going too far the wrong direction, and if we get too severe of a loss, our pheasant numbers will be too far down to rebuild," said Kessler, a member of Pheasants Forever's National Board of Directors. "We've lost 1.5 million acres of grassland in South Dakota since our height in the mid-2000s because of conversion to cropland. If we continue to have that kind of loss in grass, it will make it extremely hard to have the pheasants to come back.”
Every late-season pheasant hunter loves this sweet moment: The air is sharp. The sky is wide and blue. And as always in South Dakota, the anticipation of seeing roosters painted against that sky is palpable.

Leiba's owner, Bryan Sayler from Horace, ND, and friend Kevin Erickson from Frazee, MN shot their limit by 9:00am.
The number of pheasants harvested this season could drop to a low not seen since 2001. The number might not stop there. Aaron Robinson, North Dakota Game and Fish upland game biologist in Dickinson, said he expects harvest numbers to be around 350,000 to 450,000 which could be the lowest number in a decade.
The opening weekend of South Dakota’s pheasant hunting season has been a safe and productive one.
As of Sunday afternoon, Game, Fish and Parks Conservation Officer Andy Petersen said no injuries had been reported even as orange-clad hunters tromped through area fields in search of pheasants.
“It’s one of the few years that has happened,” Petersen said.
