The Emmons County Wildlife Club and the Happy Hour Bar of Linton co-sponsored the annual Longest Pheasant Tail Contest. Contestants paid $10 and could “up” their entry as many times as they wanted. Contestants could take their tails into Kimble’s Guns & Repair, Bayside Oahe Resort or the Happy Hour Bar to be measured. The tails were re-measured at the Jan. 15 meeting by the ECWC officers and members. Above, Zach Serr of Linton captured first place in the contest. His pheasant tail measured 26.5 inches.
Rod Hjelm of Linton came away with third place in the ECWC Longest Pheasant Tail Contest. The tail measured 23 and 3/8 inches.
