Pheasants Forever Chapter #872
Why do so many folks volunteer their time to make Pheasant Country such a success?
The early founders knew that South Dakota had a unique resource that deserves protection. While other organizations such as the Game Fish and Parks, Pheasants Unlimited and Federal and State conservation programs offer great incentive programs, there is still much more that can be done. Pheasant Country's goal is to work directly with the landowner and pheasant hunter to establish habitat for more hunting enjoyment.
As the program grew and became successful, more help was needed to run the organization. In response, local businessmen, landowners and other pheasant enthusiasts joined efforts to volunteer their time and money to Pheasant Country. They do this because of their love for pheasants, hunting and for the economic benefits visitors bring to South Dakota.
Should I support Pheasant Country even though I don't hunt pheasants?
Yes, increasing Pheasant Habitat improves the living conditions for other types of Wildlife such as deer, coyotes, fox, hawks, owls, eagles and raccoons. While all of these animals fall prey to vehicle traffic, weather and hunting, the number of wildlife is mostly dependent on the amount and quality of habitat. Therefore your monetary support will improve habitat, which will increase the wildlife population.
