PIERRE – The Game, Fish and Parks Commission recently proposed a 65-day pheasant season for 2001 that will run Oct. 20 through Dec. 23 in the main hunting unit.
As proposed, the season in Unit 1 would be eight days shorter than the 2000 season, which ran through Dec. 31. The season for Unit 2, which includes several counties around the Black Hills, would run from Oct. 20-28.
The daily limit for pheasants would be three roosters, with a possession limit of 15 roosters taken according to the daily limit. Shooting hours would be noon (CST) to sunset through Oct. 27, and after that from 10 a.m. (CST) to sunset.
