   History


Hunting Pheasants in our area has been good for a long time.

Here Great-Uncle Oscar Gabrielson (Alden's Uncle) and
some friends show off a hunts harvest. Alden grew up
in the 1930's & 1940's and states that the limit at that time was
7 birds a day (4 Roosters & 3 Hens).

The South Dakota State bird is the Ring-necked Pheasant .
On February 13, 1943, South Dakota chose a bird that
is native to China, the Ringnecked Pheasant, as the state bird!


   About


Alden Skoglund (second from left) is shown here sometime in the late 50's or early 60's.

The "Soil Bank" years were great for pheasant populations. The Soil Bank ended in 1963
(although some contracts were still in effect until 1973). The 70's were more challenging for the birds.  

Through the decades farming practices have changed and many local families have left the farm for lives elsewhere.  The Pheasant population has dipped and spiked.  But each year we look forward to the fall and another Pheasant season!





   



Alden and Delores started keeping pheasant hunters in 1957.

This is an early poster advertising the Skoglund Farm.

Alden & Delores are now retired and have recently moved into a nice home in Salem, right across from the city park.
