Pheasant Economics

Note: Expenditures of resident and nonresident upland game hunters while hunting in South Dakota were obtained from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service 2011 National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation-South Dakota and adjusted for an annual inflation rate of 3%. These county-specific spending estimates were generated by applying mean per-hunter spending estimates to the number and distribution of pheasant hunters as derived from the 2014 SD GFP upland game harvest surveys.
