SD 2021 Pheasant Hunting Season Dates and Information

Hunt the Greatest in South Dakota

With rolling hills and endless prairies, South Dakota is home to the best pheasant hunting in the country.  With abundant public land hunting opportunities, pheasant hunters have access to some of the greatest spots to chase birds and work their dogs. We do not have to be the ones to tell you that pheasants and pheasant hunting are solidly engrained in the South Dakota culture - because that speaks for itself.  Whether you live here or are here for the hunt, you will never forget that South Dakota is where you hunt the greatest land, live the greatest traditions, and make the greatest memories.

Since 1919, the tradition of pheasant hunting has brought friends and families together. Every fall, opening weekend brings unprecedented enthusiasm, excitement, and activity to cities and rural communities across the state.
