S.D. Hunters disappointed by lack of pheasants

Sioux Falls, S.D. (AP) – Many South Dakota hunters who took to
the fields in search of pheasant over the weekend returned home
empty-handed and frustrated.

They say standing crops that farmers haven’t been able to
harvest because of poor weather made it difficult to find
birds.

A hunting season for state residents only began Saturday and
ends Monday. Hunting is allowed only on public land from noon to
sunset. There is a daily limit of three roosters.

Chad Kaiser of Hartford says he didn’t see any pheasants and
never fired his gun during his two hours outside Sunday afternoon.
But he says it was still fun to go out with the dogs.

A 79-day hunting season for residents and nonresidents opens
this coming Saturday.
