s the leaves begin to change, the crops are brought in from the fields and the October air becomes crisp, pheasant season begins in South Dakota. But the first day of hunting season is about more than sports. It reunites the community for a time of celebration.Pheasant season drives the economy, dominates the social calendar and forges enduring connections and memories.

Tom Brokaw, one of the greatest storytellers of his generation, returns to his home state to take viewers through the hunting fields and introduce them to the people who congregate there the third Sunday of each October in a generational ritual that Brokaw himself has been attending for decades.
