Pheasant in Redfield, South Dakota.

Pheasant Capital of the World

Huron SD, may have a larger pheasant, but Redfield, SD proclaims itself to be the Pheasant Capital of the World on the welcome sign upon entering town. This is because pheasants were first released into the wild in North America near Redfield, SD.

They also have an impressive fiberglass pheasant of their own, although it doesn't compare in size to the one in Huron, SD.
