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 our preserve-land that is licensed by the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission. This license allows us to hunt from September 1 to March 31 in those designated areas. Because of our location in south central South Dakota even the preserve shooting areas for pheasants are predominantly native birds. The preserve areas allow us to, not only, extend our hunting season, but to increase our hunter’s daily limit.
