    New Law

    You obviously don't know the laws in SD. If we are talking about licenses to hunt pheasants there is no limitation. You can buy as many as you want. Each license is valid for a total of 10 days.

    New Law

    Since when did South Dakota limit non-resident hunting license, other than maybe waterfowl and big game.

    I see a couple on Guns International and they are asking around $6,000.

    PSA-Loosen up that choke, or get rid of it altogether

    Tom Knapp. I met him and had a couple of drinks with him in Huron, SD at the Ringneck Festival years ago. He put on a shooting exhibition on Friday afternoon. Pretty incredible what he could to with a shotgun and some clay targets. However, on Saturday, the day of the pheasant hunting...

    PSA-Loosen up that choke, or get rid of it altogether

    I've been using IC in my guns almost exclusively since the mid 70's.

    Tools?

    I assume you are talking about pheasant hunting. I've been hunting pheasants for more than 60 years and never carried anything more than maybe a knife and a length of rope in case my dog got caught in a conibear trap.

    Collars

    Thanks for this info. Guess I haven't looked at the newer Garmin units. It appears the TT25 is about $50 more than the TT15 Mini, but I'd spend the extra bucks and get the TT25 and have the latest technology. I do like the smaller size on my Brittanys.

    Collars

    I have a 35 lb. female Brittany and have had the TT15 Mini for over 6 years. I really like the smaller collar for my Brittany. While some say the Mini has less battery life and less range I would say that it is minimal and nothing to be concerned about. I have the Alpha 100 with the TT15 Mini...

    Retrieves everything except birds...

    Years ago I hunted a very good retrieving dog with a new dog. The older dog would take the birds away from her and thus she learned she didn't need to retrieve. Big mistake on my part. I'd try hunting them separate and see if that makes a difference. Opposite of your dog, I had one that...

    2024 National Pheasant Fest in Sioux Fall, who is going?

    45 years of living in SD and they never had a Pheasant Fest in Sioux Falls until I started spending my winters in Arizona. :mad: I did go to one in Kansas City and another in Minneapolis.

    Browning 20ga A5

    I agree. My point was that the weight difference between 3 20 ga shells and 3 16 ga shells is very minimal.

    Browning 20ga A5

    That is a proven fact but certainly could very between guns, payloads, chokes, etc.

    Browning 20ga A5

    Assuming 3 shells in the gun the weight difference between 20 ga with 1 oz loads and a 16 ga with 1 1/8 oz loads has to be very minor. Maybe an ounce or two.

    Browning 20ga A5

    One big advantage the 16 has over the 20 is that in most cases the 16 throws a better pattern.

    Browning 20ga A5

    I love my 16 also. Kind of surprised the 20 is only 1 oz. less than the 16. Browning web site says the 20 is built using a smaller-sized frame than that of the 12 gauge. Doesn't compare it to the 16 so my guess they are using the 16 gauge frame. That's what Browning did with the older Auto...

    dog vest

    My current Brittany is 35 lbs and my previous Brittany was 40 lbs. A Medium fit them both very well. There is a fair amount of adjustment. You want it to fit fairly tight, you don't want it loose on the dog.

    SDGFP cracking down on non-resident resident licensing?

    I agree with what you are saying. What about someone that has a residence in Minnesota and spends 99% of the year in Minnesota yet through some SD loop hole claims SD for income tax purpose? Don't you think Minnesota, or any other state, would have a problem with that?

    SDGFP cracking down on non-resident resident licensing?

    You should have noticed that the information provided in the above link is not from the State of SD. It's a private company trying to make a buck. Maybe it's stuff like this that has prompted the state to propose a bill to tighten residency requirements, at least for a hunting license. I know...

    SDGFP cracking down on non-resident resident licensing?

    This is false information. They certainly are not a SD resident by spending 1 night every 5 years in the state. However, SD is quite liberal in letting people from out of state license their RV's in SD. I'm not sure what the requirements are for that but I know there are many RV'ers that...

    Crock pot

    Here's the easiest pheasant recipe there is and it turns out great every time. I normally use a baking dish in the oven but a crock pot works also. This recipe doesn't even require you to brown the pieces first. PHEASANT IN CREAM SAUCE 1-2 Pheasants, quartered or cut into serving pieces...
