This will be an organized pheasant hunt near Chancellor, South Dakota. It should be a good time to get a few birds and enjoy others company.
We will all meet at the home of Julie Sasker. Let Julie know that you are coming and she can give you directions on how to get there. Contact Julie to reserve your spot! This day will cost you $50 per person and you must pay when you register as there will only be 15 hunting spots. This will allow you, if you are lucky, to take 3 birds each plus the opportunity to hunt on private land.
Please arrive by 8:00 a.m. so we can sharpen our shooting skills by shooting a few clay birds. We will be leaving to start hunting promptly at 10:00 a.m. We will carpool for short trip to the hunting area. There we will proceed to walk the tall grass for birds. Hunting dogs have been secured and will meet us at the hunting area.
Pack a sack lunch so we can eat in the field and plenty of water to drink. Make sure you have good sturdy boots that you can walk in. You can bring your own shotgun and shells if you wish or OWSD will have 12 gauge shotguns for you to use and let Julie know if you need to use one. You will need an orange vest and hat. And most important don’t forget your pheasant license and dress according to weather!
We will be watching a hunting safety video before we leave for the field. If you are not a member of OWSD you will need to pay the membership fee of $40.00 plus the hunting price of $50.00. You must also have a Hunt Safe Certificate if under the age of 18. We are hunting private land so the birds will be released a day or two ahead of hunt.
We will hunt approximately 3-4 hours and come back to the house to clean birds. Bring Ziploc bags to put your cleaned birds in and a cooler to keep them in for your trip home.
We will need to let the dog handlers and the landowner know how many of you are coming so pre sign up is a must. Everyone will be required to sign a waiver for OWSD before we leave for hunting. Please contact Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. You will be registered once your $50.00 has been received.
