Pheasant Hunts

South Dakota is one of the highest pheasant populated states, if not the highest. It stands a reason as to why the ringneck pheasant has been named the state bird of South Dakota. It began a little over a century ago around 1908 when the pheasants were introduced into South Dakota, and since then they flourished thus starting the state pheasant season in 1919. Because of the massive amounts of pheasants, flights get booked months and months in advance by out-of-state hunters to ensure they make it here during the next pheasant season.

The reason behind this is simple…habitat and wildlife management. There are endless fields of corn and soybeans along with an enormous amount of CRP land. Plus, there are countless food plots to entice and protect the birds even more. Not only do the lodges manage fields for the wildlife and habitat, many landowners are doing the same thing. Royal Flush is home to some of the best pheasant hunting in the state. Having over 4,000 acres of prime hunting land, there are plenty of opportunities to hunt over a wide variety of habitat.

We have a few different seasons in South Dakota for pheasant hunting – early (preserve land), normal, and late (preserve land). Early season begins the first part of September until around the middle of October, normal season continues until around the end of December, and late season proceeds until the end of March. These different seasons allow for a variety of hunting methods, testing skill levels, and sometimes testing toughness levels as well.
