The diverse landscape of Pheasant Connection Farm is characterized by an assortment of habitats and an abundant array of natural resources. For many outdoor enthusiasts, no other wildlife species in the state is as recognized or valued as the ring-necked pheasant. Though pheasants are not a native species to North America, they have become naturalized to this mosaic of grassland and agricultural land habitat found in much of South Dakota. From the first successful releases of pheasants in 1908 to the current estimated population of around 10 million birds, South Dakotans and our visitors have built a rich and deeply rooted tradition around pheasants and pheasant hunting. The opening weekend in October is an event anticipated not only by pheasant hunters, but also family and friends who are reunited during this social gathering. You will also find an abundance of white-tailed deer and sharp-tailed grouse as well as ducks and geese.

If you enjoy fishing, Lake Oahe in Pierre offers exceptional fishing for walleye, northern pike and salmon. and bluegill. In the winter try ice fishing for walleye or pan fish.
