South Dakota’s pheasant opener is only a few hours away and by now a lot of hunters are up drinking coffee and getting ready for what they hope will be a successful day in the fields. Hundreds of out-of-state hunters arrived at the Sioux Falls airport yesterday, including 91 year old George Harvey of Virginia. He’s been coming here for 57 years and loves it.
South Dakota authorities are also reminding hunters and hikers to take precautions after finding a missing hunter in the Black Hills. Crews from Pennington and Custer counties used a thermal drone to search for the 72-year-old man from Alexandria, who was elk hunting with his friends.
Authorities found him Thursday night just over an hour after he was reported missing.
