In Kind Grain Gift With harvest winding down, Sundall reminds owners of crops that an “in-kind” gift of grain may be made to the Foundation, thereby allowing the owner to avoid paying income tax on the gift of grain. The grain owner merely has to sign a Bill of Sale and Gift Agreement form identifying the number of bushels being gifted. The Foundation then sells the grain in its name. The elevator pays the Foundation and the gift is done. Forms are available from Herb Sundall’s office and at the elevators in Kennebec and Presho. Contact any board member and they can obtain a form for you as well. Current Board members are Herb C. Sundall, Justin Jessop, Jim Fulwider, Layne Larson, Janet Schindler, Wayne Monson, Noel Hamiel, Sarah Caslin, and a Lyman High School Representative.

Lyman County Pheasants Forever Chapter holds banquet

Nineteen guns ranging from shotguns to pistols were given away at the annual Lyman County Pheasants Forever Chapter banquet Saturday night held in the gym at Kennebec. Organizers considered the event a success. Approximately, 160 people enjoyed the prime rib meal cooked and served by members of the Lyman band and choir. The auction went really well,” said Danielle Palmer. “We didn’t have as many items, so it went faster, but we still did well.” Palmer stated their planning committee made an effort to keep the event running in a timely manner. Our goal was to be out of there by ten o’clock, and we were,” said Palmer. The banquet was moved from opening weekend to the second weekend of the pheasant season at the request of some local members due to opening weekend being extremely busy. Palmer stated the committee would probably consider staying with the second weekend again next year as it was successful and different people, locals and out-of-town hunters were able to attend. We’ll try it and if it doesn’t work we can always go back to opening weekend,” said committee member Danielle Palmer who is assisting with promotion and sponsorship collections. Officers of the local PF Chapter include Cody Palmer and Craig Reuman.

Hunters average two birds in Lyman Co. during opener
 
 
 
Pheasant hunters began rolling into Lyman County late last week for the traditional opener Saturday, Oct. 15. Warm weather greeted hunters Saturday with the temperature topping out at 84 degrees in Kennebec. Sunday was cooler with a high of 70 degrees. Information in a press release issued from the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks, indicate that despite the 2016 pheasant brood survey numbers being down, hunters were successful across the state in bagging some birds. Standing crops were an obstacle in some areas, but hunters found decent bird numbers across the state,” said GFP Secretary Kelly Hepler. “The tradition of the opening day of South Dakota’s pheasant season is special. Whether it’s a first time hunter putting their first rooster in their game bag, or a grizzled vet meeting up with friends for an annual hunt.” Regional reports from the GFP indicated the average birds per hunter in Lyman, Tripp, Hughes and Brule Counties was two pheasants while hunters in other central counties averaged one. GFP Wildlife Officer Spencer Downey of Presho said the opener went really well in western Lyman County. Most hunters I encountered were having pretty good luck,” said Downey Monday.
