About 1% for the Planet
1% for the Planet is a conservation based organization in which member businesses voluntarily donate 1% of their gross receipts to an approved conservation non-profit of their choice.
1% for the Planet was founded by Yvon Chouinard, owner of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, who founded Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone, Montana.
1% for the Planet was founded on the premise that businesses who make their livelihood from the outdoors should give something back to the outdoors, in return for the many benefits they receive as a provider of outdoor recreation and equipment.
High Mountain Outfitters & Spearfish Creek Fly Shop of Spearfish are the only members of 1% for the Planet in South Dakota. We invite hunting and fishing outfitters & guides, hunting lodges, and all other associated outdoor businesses to join 1% for the Planet.
Over the past 10 years, 1% for the Planet has raised over 150 million dollars to conservation in the U.S. and around the world.
We invite individuals who love the outdoors and businesses associated with outdoor sports to join. To get started becoming a part of this organization, contact 1% for the Planet online at http://www.onepercentfortheplanet.org/join.
Upland Game Bird Opportunities
We work with two pheasant hunting lodges in central South Dakota. Both offer great pheasant hunting opportunities - with each offering varying packages and accommodations.
Pheasant season opens the third Saturday of October, and the season is open through the first weekend of January.
South Dakota is known as the pheasant hunting capital of the United States and has consistently provided the best pheasant hunting in the entire country.
Both lodges offer hunters the opportunity to use their own dogs, or use the dogs provided by the lodges.
Please check the links on our website for the Rieger Creek Lodge, located in Selby, South Dakota, and Korkow Ranch, located 15 miles east of Pierre.
The owners of both of these pheasant hunting lodges are personal friends of ours, and we highly recommend either of these pheasant hunting lodges.
