Hunting Land

In this Oct. 7, 2012 file photo, 14-year-old Collin Cleveland, of Montrose, S.D., takes aim at a pheasant during the state's annual youth hunt on land near Tyndall, S.D. When pheasant hunters take to the fields of South Dakota this weekend to renew a treasured rite of autumn, they’ll have less land to do it on thanks to the federal government shutdown. Some 150,000 acres in the national wildlife refuge system will be off-limits for the state’s annual public lands hunt. It’s a scenario being played out across the country, affecting millions of acres that are ordinarily available to hunters seeking antelope in Colorado, ducks in Montana or bears in Alaska.
