The 2018 Pheasants Forever banquet was held at the American Legion in Wessington Springs on Friday, October 19. A lively, good-sized crowd was on hand for a meal, catered and provided by Jack Link’s, followed by silent and live auction action that went well into the night.    

Pheasants Forever uses much of the money raised by the annual event to improve habitat, to supply public information regarding pheasant hunting in South Dakota and for youth hunting activities. 

The next day, the elementary school gymnasium was transformed into a shopping mecca. For the 30th consecutive year, vendors filed into Wessington Springs to sell their wares at  the SACOTA Hobby and Craft Fair, rounding out a full weekend of events and tradition in Wessington Springs.
