The Tradition Continues

This year, as the fields open up for a new season of pheasant hunting, Aberdeen and Brown County will be celebrating 100 years of this time honored tradition. Starting with the very first, one-day pheasant hunting season in October of 1919, this tradition began to grow into something bigger than just heading out to bag some birds. It became something more meaningful altogether.

Nobody could’ve predicted, back in 1919, that this annual gathering of bird hunters would turn into a long standing tradition that would be shared, and passed down amongst generations of sons and daughters. But that’s what we have here in Aberdeen, and it’s something we’re very proud to be a part of. Family and friends from all over the world join each other year after year, and take to the fields of Brown County for their annual hunt. And while it’s great to fill your limit of birds, for many, the real satisfaction comes from simply being a part of something that brings them all together.

Memories that get carried for a lifetime are created here. This is where pheasant hunting becomes more than a sport, it becomes a tradition. Be a part of ours, and start creating your own.
