Pheasants Forever is setting up its first office in South Dakota in response to a sharp drop in bird numbers.
Longtime vice president of governmental affairs Dave Nomsen will move to Brookings in July and be the group's point person in the state.
The nonprofit organization that encourages the development of habitat has 32 chapters and about 6,000 members in South Dakota.
Pheasants Forever says it's increasing its efforts to address substantial habitat losses and land use changes in the state.
