I’ve got a couple buddies who are working on a South Dakota trip to go shoot Pheasants. Trips like these take some time to plan, but they are both adamant that it’ll be an experience like no other. In the ‘refinement’ theme of 2017, I’m in. Orvis offers some world class trips, but I believe they’ve got a few other ideas up their sleeves based on some relationships they’ve made over the years.
Pheasants are very handsome birds. They have a regality about them that seems very ‘top shelf’. This look has been celebrated for years in the form of artwork and decorating (See Melanie Davis’ design here). I’m not talking about the landscape paintings, but the engraved plates and prints that really focus on the bird. You can find these everywhere, from Etsy to Ebay, and at antique markets and shows. I’m working on getting some wall space for a couple like this. I’ll even let Mrs. RCS pick the frame….I may need James Farmers’ to help with the encouragement.
