A few weeks after posting a video that went viral of her shooting a pheasant in a corn field, Gov. Kristi Noem was back at it on Saturday, Oct. 17.
Noem’s Saturday Twitter post states: “Opening day of the full pheasant hunting season! Where are you hunting?”
The tweet then shows a sequence of photos of the governor walking through the field, eventually locating and shooting at a pheasant, and ultimately meeting up with her dog.
“Visitors from around the country and across the world come to shoot pheasants in our great state, spending more than $175 million annually and supporting roughly 18,000 South Dakota jobs,” Noem stated in her weekly column, titled, “More Hunting.”
“Let’s keep in mind, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, that pheasant hunting is one of the very best ways that we can enjoy time with loved-ones while practicing social distancing,” she added.
