Nothing helps kicks off the time-honored traditions of pheasant season in Jerauld County than the annual Pheasants Forever Banquet.

The banquet, slated for October 18, will feature a meal by Jack Link's, gun raffles, live and silent auctions and fun for all ages. Renowned artist John Green will be in attendance at the event, which will be held at the American Legion in Wessington Springs.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with the meal served at 6:30 p.m.
