For the 25th year, hunters will gather in Kimball for the Bishop’s Charity Hunt. They’ll hunt pheasant, spend time with friends and hang out with the bishop, all for a great cause—Catholic Newman Centers in our diocese.

A few adjustments may have to be made due to COVID-19, but the hunt is set to run September 21-22 at Horseshoe K Ranch. The event is sponsored by the Catholic Community Foundation of Eastern South Dakota.

This will be Bishop DeGrood’s first crack at South Dakota’s state bird while bishop. Priests, deacons and plenty of lay hunters will take part in the two-day event to benefit Catholic Newman Centers at the four state universities in our diocese: SDSU in Brookings, USD in Vermillion, NSU in Aberdeen and DSU in Madison.

Registration for the hunt begins at 8 a.m. on September 21. Join the bishop and many others to support this great cause. Lodging is on-site and included in the fee. For more information or to register, visit www.ccfesd.org or call 605-988-3765.
