Are old enough to remember the “good ole days” of hunting?

Hunting was a well respected sport and the times were grand afield.

Witness what it was like to hunt pheasants in South Dakota back in the early 1960’s.

The pheasants were thick and the red checkered wool coats and canvas pants were even thicker. It was the day of the bird hunter of yesteryear.

This vintage video of hunting pheasants in South Dakota back in the early 1960’s shared by YouTuber South Dakota Tourism takes us back to a different time. While pheasants still fly in South Dakota the times have changed and there is no going back.

While many of us are too young to have experienced these times of old. We can however check out videos like that and dream of far away places that now may have housing developments and malls on them. Oh how the times have changed…
