Print button Share
Aberdeen, SD – The Aberdeen Area is the place to be for the 2010 pheasant hunting season. Experience the rush of pounding wings, bright skies, and the cackle of roosters as they explode into the sky. 
This year is even more exciting because every hunter has the chance to win a million dollars if they shoot a banded pheasant in Brown County! 100 pheasants will be banded and released this fall in Brown County; each pheasant will be worth at least $100 but has the possibility of being worth up to one million dollars! The drawing will take place on January 7, 2011. For more details on the promotion go to
Aberdeen and the surrounding area pride themselves on having over 208,930 acres of public land and more than 114,000 acres of private hunting land. There is plenty of room for all hunters to bag their limit, enjoy the hunt, and possibly win a million dollars! Hunting is a tradition in this area and Aberdeen businesses roll out the “orange carpet” and Midwest hospitality to welcome our hunters. There are several hotels in Aberdeen as well as campgrounds and hunting lodges throughout the area to accommodate hunters. For a full listing of lodging availability go to We hope to see you this fall – don’t miss your chance to bag a million dollar bird!
