South Dakota Tradition Runs Deep in Jerauld County

South Dakotans and our visitors have built a rich and deeply rooted tradition around pheasants and pheasant hunting for over a century. Opening weekend in October continues to carry on as an event anticipated not only by hunters, but also loved ones and  friends who are reunited during this time of much-loved customs and gatherings.

The tradition of highlighting all that our area has to offer is a longstanding one too, with the practice of publishing a True Dakotan hunting issue spanning many decades. Again this year, we carry on our  new version of that tradition as we publish the third annual Jerauld County Outdoors, inserted in the print issue of this week's newspaper.

In the full-color, glossy pages of Jerauld County Outdoors, readers will discover important information related to the hunt, as well as hunting specific content and feature stories.  Shopping, special events, dining and recreation details — all focused on helping our guests enjoy pheasant season to the fullest — are also featured within the Jerauld County Area Hunting Guide.

We hope this True Dakotan-published guide leads to the discovery of local services and time-honored events that encourage quality moments with friends and family as visitors and locals alike enjoy the season-long celebration.
