Lots of Ringnecks Expected in State

Wildlife officials say they expect good pheasant hunting in South Dakota this fall. The Game, Fish and Parks Department says the annual August pheasant brood counts indicate that the statewide pheasant population is up from last year, and that should equate to an excellent pheasant season this fall.

G-F-&-P officials say the results of the survey show that ringneck numbers grew in many areas of the state, due in large part to a mild winter and ideal weather during the nesting and brood-rearing season.

Department Secretary Jeff Vonk says the mild winter of 2011-12 was the boost the state needed for pheasant survival and reproductive potential.

G-F-&-P says much of the improvement in the pheasant counts came in areas of the state that had a good habitat base.
