“I have hunted for five years in South Dakota and the best true hunting experience for pheasants was with Ringnecks Lodge because there is so much variable terrain, not just crop rows. The variety makes it so much fun. The birds are wily and wild, sneaking around you if they can get away with it. Also, the deer population makes it fun when a deer flushes instead of a pheasant. I am coming back this fall.”
