Hunters lined up at Pro Bait & Tackle Saturday morning to purchase hunting licenses before the start of the 2005 pheasant season noon opener. According to Don Lurz of Pro Bait, the new bait shop sold nearly 200 hunting licensees over the weekend, the majority to out of state hunters. Presho Area Chamber furnished free coffee and doughnuts to hunters as they waited to get their licenses at Pro Bait Saturday morning.
According to GF&P Conservation Officer Mark Ohm no shooting accidents were reported in Lyman County over opening weekend. It was overall a good opener. It was a great fall day, maybe just a little warm on some hunting dogs that got over worked, said Ohm. The number of hunters road hunting and those hunting on public lands appeared to be down. I went through the big public hunting lands of eastern Lyman County Saturday right after the start of the season and the number of hunters I counted were down from last year. Those hunting on the public land worked harder to bag their limit but reports indicated that most did fill.
