PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Pheasants Forever is setting up its first office in South Dakota, in response to a sharp drop in bird numbers.

Longtime Pheasants Forever staffer Dave Nomsen will move to Brookings in July and be the group’s point person in the state. He says the move recognizes South Dakota as a global center of pheasant hunting.

There are already eight biologists in the state with Pheasants Forever. The nonprofit organization has about 6,000 members in South Dakota.
