South Dakota’s first pheasant hunt happened in Spink County. The one-day hunt took place on October 30, 1919. On the date of the 100-year anniversary, Redfield will commemorate this historic event.
The City of Redfield’s Pheasantennial Celebration will take place on October 30, starting with a Mayor’s Invitational Hunt throughout Spink County. State and local leaders have been invited to attend. Non-hunters will be treated to a tour of Spink County, organized by The Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Depot.
Following the day’s festivities, a social hour and banquet will be held at Shanty Haven, a new event hall in Redfield, starting at 6 p.m. The banquet is open to the public and will be catered by Auntie Mimi’s Farmhouse Kitchen in Tulare. Bakehouse 22 in Doland and the Redfield Family, Career and Community Leaders of America are providing dessert.
Some of the guests will share pheasant hunting memories and a Commemorative Beretta 12-gauge A400 donated by the Redfield Ringneck Association will be raffled off during the banquet. Tickets for the banquet are on sale for $25 at City Hall and the Depot. The hunt and tour are by invite only.
