Broadcaster Press 3 October 24, 2017 www.broadcasteronline.com A South Dakota Tradition By Sen. Mike Rounds We are fortunate to be home to the country’s best pheasant hunting, and opening day of pheasant season is a weekend South Dakotans look forward to all year. I’ll once again be spending opening weekend near Presho, hunting with family and friends. One of the aspects of hunting I enjoy so much is the camaraderie. Our kids grew up learning to hunt, and all four are planning to join us in the fields this fall, along with their own families. My oldest grandson will have the opportunity to mentor hunt this year. While the grandkids are still young, they look forward to hunting season as much as we do! They enjoy helping dogs chase down birds, and afterward we all enjoy a meal together as we share stories about that day’s hunt. I first learned about hunting when I was just 3 or 4 years old, when my dad, Grandpa Don, and the man who raised my dad, John Kauth, took me out hunting with them for the first time. However, I was introduced to the sport on the day I was born—the opening weekend of 1954. Each birthday, my dad reminds me about how I messed up his hunt that year! Hunting is more than just a hobby for South Dakotans, it’s also a big source of income for many of our small businesses. Each year, people from all over the country visit our state to hunt in the best pheasant habitat in the nation. They stay in our hotels, dine in our restaurants and enjoy all of the other things South Dakota has to offer. We’ve had a tough year in South Dakota with this summer’s drought, and there will be fewer birds out there, but I’m confident hunters will still be able to have a successful season – both South Dakotans and nonresidents alike. Hunting plays a large role in land conservation, as well. One of the best things we can do as sportsmen and women is continue to promote the use of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres. It’s a good program for farmers, because it provides them with an additional source of income and it’s good for hunters because it creates excellent habitat for deer, pheasant and water fowl to nest. As we continue discussions on the upcoming farm bill, raising the number of CRP acres has been a top priority of mine. We’re looking forward to enjoying some fresh air, hunting a few birds and making even more family memories this season, and we hope you, your loved ones and friends will do the same. We wish all South Dakotans safe, fun and successful hunts! New State Historical Nick Wendell Hired As Board Of Technical Education Society Book Marks Fort Executive Director Pierre Trade History PIERRE, S.D.—No other part of the West saw such a succession of trading posts as did the heart of modern-day South Dakota, where the Bad River meets the Missouri near Fort Pierre. The South Dakota State Historical Society’s latest book, “Fort Tecumseh and Fort Pierre Chouteau: Journal and Letter Books, 1830–1850,” transcribed and annotated by Michael M. Casler and W. Raymond Wood, details two such posts that reached their golden age under the American Fur Company in the 1830s and 1840s. Central to the book are the forts’ letter books and a journal. Company employees recorded daily activities in journals and relayed company business as well as personal information about the individuals at the post in letters. Letter books, which contained copies of all outgoing correspondence, were once common items at all posts on the upper Missouri, but only a few survive today. “The few letter books in existence today are dynamic documents,” says Jay D. Vogt, director of the South Dakota State Historical Society. “They illustrate the nature of commerce in this region and are a rich resource for historians. Scholars Casler and Wood have done a service to researchers in compiling them into one volume.” Editors Casler and Wood transcribed and annotated these rare materials, including some translated from the original French. Known for over a century, the Fort Tecumseh journal and the letter books from Fort Tecumseh and Fort Pierre Chouteau are published here in their entirety for the first time. Casler is a former park ranger with the National Park Service and has written numerous articles on the upper Missouri River fur trade from his home in Williston, N.D. Wood is the author of numerous publications and has a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Oregon. He taught anthropology at the University of Missouri for nearly four decades. “Fort Tecumseh and Fort Pierre Chouteau: Journal and Letter Books, 1830–1850” is available for $29.95 plus shipping and tax from the South Dakota Historical Society Press, sdhspress.com, or from local and online booksellers.
