South Dakota public pheasant hunting always starts the third Saturday in October and continues through the end of the year. The daily bag-limit is three roosters, with a possession limit of fifteen. We also hunt some preserve-land that is licensed by the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission. This license allows us to hunt from September 1 to April 1 on those areas. Because of our location in south central South Dakota even the preserve shooting areas for pheasants are predominantly wild birds. The preserve areas allow us to extend our hunting season and to increase our hunter’s bag-limit.
