Pheasants on the side

Postby striperphil » Thu Dec 01, 2011 4:08 pm

Hey guys. A friend and I usually visit N Dak for a week in mid Oct each year and have had a great time shooting ducks and geese. We hunt in the Lakota area. Next year we would like to incorperate a day of pheasant hunting. There are almost none of them in the Lakota area. How far south would we need to drive to find decent pheasant hunting, and does anyone know of a guide/outfitter you would use? Thanks, Phil

Pheasant numbers are down pretty low this year. Just letting you know. Don't know how much it would be worth it to go after them especially in that area since it is not a very good area for them. Thats just my input.

A couple years ago you probably could have gone 50-60 miles and found decent numbers but the Eastern part of the state's numbers have dropped big time. You'd probably have to get south of valley city and jamestown now and it would be spotty most likely. Please don't support guides and advance the decline of hunter access in the state.

I'm not trying to hurt any hunting access at all. We freelance the ducks and geese, but the pheasant hunt would just be a one day thing, and we don't have a dog. Trust me, I love the access w/ farmers in N Dak, it is amazing.

I'm sure you're not intending to hurt access, it's just that by using a guide, you are. Guides wouldn't lease up land if no one paid them.
