South Dakota Might Implement A Pheasant Release Program

Noem, Jackley share initiatives to boost SD?s pheasant population at Pheasant Fest | The Daily Republic

Quote:
"...South Dakota gubernatorial candidates Marty Jackley and Kristi Noem revealed over the weekend detailed initiatives to enhance the state’s pheasant population while campaigning at the 2018 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic....As bird numbers have declined in recent years in South Dakota, officials with Pheasants Forever were happy to see Noem and Jackley committed to improving habitat conditions and keeping the state the top pheasant destination in the nation...."


Jackley’s Pheasant Hunting Initiative:
Create a pheasant restoration blue ribbon commission
Build public-private partnerships for habitat
Implement pheasant release program
Create volunteer habitat stamp and sportsmen license plate
Promote next generation youth hunting

Noem’s Second Century Initiative:
Increase resources for habitat management — without raising taxes
Crowdsource habitat solutions
Target predators, while inspiring the next generation of South Dakota hunters
Maintain habitat management as a national priority
Serve as sportsman in chief for South Dakota pheasant hunting

I don't believe releasing (stocking), pheasants in South Dakota is anything news worthy, I think they've been releasing some for years up there. The rest of their new initiative may be new.

Yep, South Dakota, though heralded as the leading pheasant state in the nation, actually has a huge pheasant stocking program.

I am not sure the state is involved in raising and stocking pheasants but the large private pheasant hunting property owner destinations, where they charge hunters to come and hunt their property, sure are. They release a lot of pheasants every year. In fact I think they generally release about two for every pheasant harvested. I’m not sure but I think it may even be required of them.

As a side note our local Pheasants Forever Chapter had six members in attendance at this year’s Pheasant Fest held in Sioux Fall, South Dakota. Two of them were from our youth membership, who also serve as two of only 21 members of the National Youth Leadership Council coming from all across the nation.

I believe South Dakota either was...or did, start a program (through private business contributions) to pay landowners to open their land to pheasant hunters. ???
