We left South Dakota for 8 years. Yes, I guess we'd lost our mind for a bit... but we're back now! When we lived in the state of _________ we were told it was a great pheasant hunting state. Now when you're used to pheasants in flocks, pheasants on the roads, pheasants hitting your windshield and grill regularly that is sorta what you expect in a 'pheasant hunting state'. Our kids were young then but they noticed along with us that that is not how it is in that state. Very rarely would we even see a pheasant. Very rarely did we see a pheasant hunter. Even rarer was to see them together!! Oh yes, there was a pheasant hunter that attended our church in his hunting garb. He seemed more depressed during pheasant season than at any other time... too much disappointment I guess. We finally did see a pheasant in _______. We were driving down the highway and someone passed us. A dead pheasant was hanging from their front head lamp!!!! We all laughed ... the kids pointed and said "there's that _________ pheasant!!" Sorry, ____________ but I think the season just ended.
South Dakota Pheasant Hunting .... we have the birds!

With the BEST spot in SouthDakota to hunt and the BEST hunting guide(s) you will have so many shooting opportunities you'll be overwhelmed with victory and success.
I want to introduce to you, Mark Appel... the man behind Swarming Pheasants. If you go to http://www.swarmingpheasants.com/ you can click on a YouTube link for a very well done presentation on our place.
Now, I'll tell you about Mark, through my eyes... rosey as it may seem it's how I see him.
Mark is a handsome, strong, intelligent man... not tall, not dark. He is the hardest worker of all time... except for maybe his dad! His reputation and name are sacred to him so he bends over backwards to do things right. In his every day job as owner and operator of Orchard Roofing you see how this plays out. He cleans up better than anyone. Get's the job meticulously done. Uses quality materials. Doesn't charge an arm and a leg. He gets rave reviews by his customers. This is how he works for his business Swarming Pheasants also. He is most pleased when the hunter is pleased/happy. Mark is a wrestler. Once a wrestler always a wrestler... if you know a wrestler you probably said "yup" under your breath! He still wrestles anyone that even hints at wanting to... ages 1 to a 101 need only apply.
Here's a picture of the handsome man.
Talk to you later... ~~ Gini
