Trying to decide between South Dakota Pheasant Hunts or to venture down and experience a Kansas Pheasant Hunt? Let us help make your decision a bit easier!
In 2013 the number of pheasants per mile in South Dakota is down 64% from 4.19 pheasants per mile to 1.52 pheasants per mile according to the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department.
Because of cold winters and drought conditions in South Dakota, more and more pheasants are being imported from Kansas. Why go all the way to South Dakota to hunt and shoot pheasants from Kansas?
The average low temperature in South Dakota during the month of November ranges 19 to 23 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes for icy, cold, wet and miserable mornings even with the highest quality gear. In Kansas on the other hand, lows in Nov are about 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Our temperatures are just right for safe, comfortable but at the same time crisp upland game bird hunts.
Instead of hunting in the cold for our pheasants in other states, come to Kansas for the pheasant hunting experience of a lifetime.
