Straight from the Fields!
Testimonial from a recent trip to Aberdeen, South Dakota on public land!
Tyler writes:

Hey guys! I just want to give you a post trip update and also thank you for your tips and suggestions! I got home from my fifth and final day of pheasant hunting last night. With your guys input and a bunch of time spent on onX maps I can definitely say it was a complete success! As you know it was a self guided trip, I stayed in a hotel in Aberdeen and it was just myself and my two dogs. We had a couple daily limits and at the end of it brought home 10 roosters for 5 days (first and fifth day were short days due to traveling). More importantly every single day I was in the field it would hit me at some point that this is the South Dakota experience that I wanted. I have quite a few memories from the field of different flushes and retrieves but my favorite one was on Thursday when it was just my pup Ember (1yr old GSP) and I. We were on a walk in access, as we approached a small circle of cattails probably 35 yards in diameter, she picked up bird scent, as soon as she went into the cover five roosters and a hen flushed all at once. It was pure pandemonium! I picked one of the roosters shot at it and immediately knew it wasn’t a great hit but it went down, I ended up missing the others in the chaos. So now I have a wounded bird on my hands, I sent Ember back into the cattails. Right away she’s searching hard, nose to the ground all over this patch of cover. A couple minutes goes by and I’m getting worried where this bird went. Suddenly Ember turned and went out the back side of this cover dead away from me at a high rate of speed, up and over a hill. So now I can’t see her and Im a little concerned at this point. She wears a gps collar so I give it a glance and it reads 110 yards out. I started making my way to catch up to her and all of a sudden here she comes over the top of the hill with the wounded rooster in her mouth right to me! I’ll never forget that. Or on the final day on another walk in we had one bird in the bag, it’s almost noon and I wanted to get a early start home so I picked a piece of cover and said “ok, this is the last push of the South Dakota experience”. I even waited a minute to enjoy the moment. So, I sent the dogs in and BOOM a text book rooster flushes giving me the most special closing memory of the week. What are the odds! I got the bird by the way. It was a very special first SD experience and I will definitely be returning! Thanks again for taking time to give me some tips and sharing your knowledge with a fairly new public land pheasant hunter! Bellow are a few pictures from the week. Take care Travis and Casey!

Great article by Matt Soberg and Covey Rise Magazine in which Johannsen Farms Pheasant Hunts was featured. If you care about pheasants, this article is worth the read. Johannsen Farms Pheasant Hunts is a premier outfitter of HuntFishSD.com - South Dakota Hunting & Fishing. #HuntFishSD #CoveyRise #SouthDakotaPheasantHunt #Habitat #FarmingForPheasants #CRP #PheasantsForever

Pheasants Forever member Emmett Lenihan wants to give a big thank you shout out to the Aberdeen Hotel Alliance as well as all of our businesses that have donated to the Aberdeen Pheasant Coalition . Last month, the Aberdeen Hotel Alliance donated $20,500 over the next two years to the Aberdeen Pheasant Coalition. This program is designed to give a huge economic boost to Aberdeen from pheasant hunter dollars coming into Aberdeen each Fall ($15-$17 million annually). All of the money coming into the APC comes from our Aberdeen businesses, Aberdeen Tourist industry, the Sportsman's Club of Brown County and is spearheaded by the Northern South Dakota Chapter of Pheasants Forever #77. .

We are finishing round one during which we raised over $107,800 in 2015 and 2016 to go towards a $25/ acre bonus to farmers and landowners who enroll some of their acres into CRP as well as South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Walk In program ( public hunting access). This provides excellent pheasant nesting and brood rearing cover that is great habitat in the Fall and all open to public hunting. Pheasant Hunters from all across the USA come here to hunt pheasants spending lots of money in Aberdeen during the process. According to the Aberdeen Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, for every dollar coming into Aberdeen it is magnified 3 to 7 times before leaving our community. In other words if pheasant hunters spend $15 million dollars in Aberdeen during the pheasant season that results in a economic benefit to Aberdeen of over $45 million (and a lot more!) each year. That money helps our businesses, our schools, our libraries, and our residents overall.

We set a goal of enrolling 4000 acres into the program, we are less than 300 acres away from reaching that which we will do within the next few weeks with the current CRP signup going on now. Due to the success of our first round of putting in 4000 acres into the APC we are now targeting another 4000 acres to be enrolled into our program.

If you live in Aberdeen or come to Aberdeen to hunt or visit, please say thank you to all of the tremendous sponsors of the Aberdeen Pheasant Coalition. Without them, the APC wouldn't exist. These sponsors include the Aberdeen Hotel Alliance, Dacotah Bank, Hitch'n Postt, Young Guns L.L.C., Kessler's Food & Liquor, Plains Commerce Bank, Harr Motors, The Sportsman's Club of Brown County, Ken's SuperFair Foods, Great Plains Bank, Aberdeen Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, SoDak Sports , Harms Oil , Geffdog Design & Apparel , Mattern's Sporting Goods, and the Northern SD Chapter of Pheasants Forever (Aberdeen Chapter #77) as well as the SD Conservation Fund.

Good for our farmers and landowners, good for wildlife, good for sportsmen and sportswomen, good for our businesses and great for Aberdeen overall. I just wanted to give a sincere thank you to all of our APC members who made this possible. Thank you big time!
