About Ringed-Neck Pheasants

The ring-necked pheasant is the state bird of North Dakota. This pheasant originally came from Oregon in 1908, thrived on the prairie, prompting the state to purchase and release 48 additional pairs of birds. In 1919, the pheasant population was high enough for the state to hold a one-day pheasant-hunting season. Over a century later, the combination of habitat, wildlife management and fortunate weather patterns have made South Dakota a pheasant haven and a world-class hunting destination.

Our Hunts

Wild ring-necked pheasant hunting is our specialty and the South Dakota season opens the third weekend in October of each year. We hunt wild birds on native grass, food plots, CRP, waste ground, standing corn, river bottoms, and sloughs. Conservation practices have been in place at the ranch for many years and it shows. Other game birds that may be encountered on your hunt include Prairie chicken, Grouse, and Hungarian partridge.
