By Tom Carney

An excerpt from A Big Time on the Prairie…In 1932, on the first of several autumn hunting trips to Huron, South Dakota, Chicago Tribune Outdoors Editor Bob Becker became enchanted. He described “cornfields so crowded with pheasants that they were elbowing each other out of the fields onto the highway,” places “where the ringnecks are found by the thousands” and weed patches so densely populated that he and his companions saw “dozens of birds running ahead of us.”

By 1935, he vowed to a gathering of Huron sportsmen to do his part to spread the word to out-of state hunters about the bird hunting there.
