The Aberdeen Pheasant Coalition (APC) is a group of Aberdeen businesses, the Aberdeen tourist industry, sportsman clubs, spearheaded by the Northern SD Chapter of Pheasants Forever. The APC was formed to improve the local economy by increasing the amount of excellent pheasant habitat open to public hunting locally. This in turn brings in more hunters to Aberdeen providing a very strong economic benefit to our local businesses and community.
Members of this program will aim for a goal set at $50,000 dollars which in turn will create 2,000 acres of public hunting in Brule/Lyman counties. The donation of funds will be used as a onetime sign up incentive for farmers and landowners enrolling into the CRP program (excellent pheasant habitat) and at the same time, enrolling those same acres into the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks (SDGFP) public access program (Walk In Area Program) opening these acres of prime pheasant habitat to public hunting.
