A Tradition Unlike Any Other – Crow Hunting

Since 1919, the Wednesday before the pheasant opener has meant something special for hunters in Southeast South Dakota.  Men and women from all over set their sights on Turner County for the annual “Crow Hunt.”

 

The game plan is simple – shoot as many crows as possible.  Hunters spend the day in teams of two (as the rules require) to see who can bring in the most crows.  At the end of the day, teams meet at the Par Mar Golf Course to check in their crows to see who wins.

 

According to hunt organizers, “There are guys who would miss pheasant season before they’d miss the crow hunt.”  The winning team gets a trophy and the losing team buys supper and, figuratively speaking, has to eat a little crow.
