Pheasant Euphoria - A South Dakota Odyssey





I read a post recently on Montana Sporting Journal, Killin' Roosters, that gave me a chuckle, and in no small measure made me shout out loud, "Hell yeah!"  In the wake of my recent trip to the pheasant promise lands of South Dakota, it's important that I take this opportunity to echo a steadfast shared opinion with Jay that there is perhaps no other game bird on the upland journey that's easier to hate than the wily rooster.  I likes me some pheasant killin'!

Most birds I hunt with a certain degree of reverence, a tribute to their rarity, survival skills, and apparent ease in eluding me.... but not that shifty underhanded pheasant.  On the other hand, they sure make for a damn fun group outing!  To all those that enjoy, or maybe even despise pheasants, I hope this short film and photo essay will give you a charge.  I'd like to thank all those that participated in the backdrop for this film.  To say they are friends would be an understatement.   My extended family is probably more appropriate.

GREAT video, Gary. Thanks for taking me to a place I'll (probably) never see. Great sunsets, scenery, and seeing some birds fall was pretty cool too. Can't wait to see the next one :).
