South Dakota Pheasant Hunting

South Dakota Pheasant Hunting Traditions Start Here


Sunday, October 23rd, 2011

       We hosted a group that has been hunting with us for 23 years. Fun!! Three days of memories, pheasants, dogs  and laughter.

    We purchased a new black lab female pup. We are very excited about her.  I know she will be a good addition to the “girls” in the kennel.

     Still have some open dates, give us a call! Later…. Randy

Well, I got to watch a young german shorthair pointer today. Looks to have the ” makings” of a nice gun dog.  Today was warm, lots of cover and not a lot of scent this afternoon but she did fine on her first hunt. Birds held the advantage.  Good time. Later …..Randy

Well, we finished planting last week. Just in time! More rain. We rode and moved heifers from the” forty” and from  “Pete’s draw” to the ridge pasture.  Starting to cut hay. Really watching the weather, hope to get it down and then wrapped up before more rain. Gathered a wandering bull tonight.  May send him to the south pasture, he seems to think his work is done in the ridge pasture……. Later Randy

We have had a series of storms roll thru this afternoon. A  little wind,a little hail and a little rain. Others may not have been so lucky. It looked nasty all around us. Last of the bulls to go to pasture today. Dams are full and grass growing.  Later… Randy
