“In my 50 plus years of hunting the Paul Nelson Farm is by far the best pheasant hunting facility in the US. In addition, the lodging and the dining are excellent and the gracious staff made for a wonderful memory.” Orvis Reviewer from Houston TX

A PNF Video Scrapbook

It’s always a joy to see native South Dakotans Tom Brokaw and Sen John Thune when they come home for their annual hunting trip.  When our friend Chris Dorsey and his cameras happen to join them, well, the result is some terrific home movies.  Thanks, guys!
