When booking a hunt each hunter agrees to abide by the following:

  2. All hunters must wear a blaze orange hat with a brim and it is highly advisable and suggested that all hunters wear some additional clothing with blaze orange fabric (e.g. vest, coat, or shirt). Visibility in the field is essential for safety.
  3. No alcohol or controlled substances may be consumed at any time during the hunt.
  4. All hunters shall conduct themselves in a sportsman like manner and comply with the South Dakota game laws. No hen pheasants may be killed.
  5. All hunters are strongly urged to wear protective shooting glasses during the hunt.
  6. The practice of blocking (e.g. driving pheasants toward hunters positioned at the end of a field) and pinching (hunters walking towards each other), can be very dangerous if hunters do not exercise proper caution. Hunters who do blocking or pinching, they are advised to proceed with extreme caution and always wear eye protection. Low flying pheasants should never be shot at. Hunters assume all risk and liability associated with blocking and pinching.
