South Dakota wildlife officials are looking at extending the pheasant hunting season. South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks has proposed some changes to the length of the hunting season. 

Under the proposal, the pheasant season would start two hours earlier at 10 a.m. on the third Saturday of October. 

The season would also last longer, running to Jan. 31 instead of its current end date of the first Sunday of January.
