Deer taskforce to recommend no harvest in Pierre

A Pierre taskforce that manages the city's deer population plans to recommend that no deer be killed this year in light of unusually low population numbers in the area.

This would be the first year Pierre's Deer Management Task Force recommends against a deer harvest.

City Commissioner Jeanne Goodman says on average 24 deer were found on three separate counts last month. Goodman says that's considerably lower than counts in previous years.

The number of deer to be harvested, set by the state Game, Fish and Parks Department, has reached as high as 70 in previous years.

In the last two years, the department set the harvest number at 20 for the city.

 

Records mean little to Abdullah if Nebraska doesn't win

Ameer Abdullah reached a number of milestones in Nebraska's win over Northwestern.

He became the first Nebraska player to post three 1,000-yard rushing seasons and the school's No. 2 all-time leading rusher. He also scored a career-high four touchdowns in the 38-17 victory.

Abdullah said none of those accomplishments mean anything if the 16th-ranked Cornhuskers don't win the rest of their games.

The senior from Homewood, Alabama, says few people will remember his statistics when his college career is over. He says he would like to be remembered for leading the Cornhuskers (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) to their first conference championship since 1999.

Nebraska hosts Rutgers (5-2, 1-2) on Saturday at 11 am CT.

3 generations converge in SD field during opener

Three generations have converged in a northern South Dakota field for this year's pheasant opener.

Bob, John and Ben, all sharing the Donner last name, traveled 180 miles from Clara City, Minnesota, to Chelsea to take part on South Dakota's famous event.

John Donner said his father has always been a tremendous shot. Bob Donner, who turns 90 next month, shot four shells on Saturday and limited out with three roosters.

Bob Donner has been hunting at the Steve and Mary Swanhorst farm in Faulk County for about 15 years. John Donner has made the trip about five years.

Saturday was the first day of the season that runs through Jan. 4. Officials say they expect the opener to draw the usual crowd of thousands.
