South Dakota’s economy will get a multi-million dollar boost beginning Saturday.

It’s the start of pheasant hunting season in the state, and hunters will be flocking to South Dakota from around the world.

It rarely disappoints as only three times in the past 20 years has the annual pheasant harvest been under 1 million roosters.

About 150,000 hunters killed more than 1.2 million pheasants last year in South Dakota, spending $170 million in the process.

The state has more than 1 million acres of land open to public hunting.

The pheasant season runs through January 1st.
