Back the Jacks while hunting

From the Department of Game, Fish and Parks comes this unique way for hunters to show their support for South Dakota State University:

An autumn change in colors isn’t limited to trees and leaves. In South Dakota, our hats start turning color as well – to hunter blaze orange.

South Dakota Game Fish and Parks and South State University has just the hat for you, if not as an SDSU alumni then certainly as a hunter.

SDSU has a long partnership with the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department through education and research that benefits our wildlife. With that partnership in mind, SDSU and GFP are unveiling a limited issue blaze orange hunting cap that will feature both the SDSU Jackrabbit logo and a GFP pheasant.

Proceeds from the cap sales will go toward  the Ken Higgins Waterfowl Legacy Research Endowment and SDSU athletics.

South Dakota Game Fish and Parks will be pursuing similar partnerships with other interested state universities.
