Pheasant hunters from throughout the country converged on the Sioux Falls Regional Airport on Thursday---and received a warm welcome from the Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau!  The bureau's staff rolled out the red carpet welcoming the thousands of hunters---greeting them with gifts, cookies and coffee, and providing information on Sioux Falls hotels, restaurants, attractions, and more.

The Bureau's Teri Schmidt visited with some of the hunters.  Check the audio to hear their entertaining conversation!

More hunters are expected to arrive today at the Sioux Falls Regional Airport before the season kicks off at noon on Saturday.
