March left with a blizzard yesterday, but we have our sights on spring weather once again. Our winter was extremely cold with temps below zero for much of December, January and February. The good news is that we never got much snow. From the pheasants perspective, that's a good thing as their food source does not get covered up.

South Dakota has seen a drop in pheasant numbers the past couple of years due to harsh winter weather and poor nesting conditions.  The pheasants survived this winter in good shape. We will have to keep an eye on the late April and May weather and hope for moderate moisture with no low land flooding. Our hen population at Eagle Pass Lodge is excellent, so good nesting conditions will equate to a jump in pheasant numbers this fall.
