GFP: 176K hunters baged 1.9M pheasants in 2008

Pierre, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Game Fish & Parks
Department has released survey results from the last hunting
season.

It shows that more than 176,000 resident and nonresident hunters
went after pheasants in the state during the 2008 season and
harvested about 1.9 million birds.

The GFP says nearly 19,000 South Dakotans took part in the
early, resident-only pheasant season and shot more than 40,000
birds.

And the state’s first mentored pheasant season had participation
of more than 2,500 youth hunters.

The 2008 prairie grouse hunting season drew more than 12,400
hunters who bagged an estimated 47,000 grouse and prairie
chickens.
