The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department purchased the land using Pittman-Robertson dollars, contributions from the Minnehaha and Brookings County Pheasants Forever chapters and the Tony Dean Legacy Memorial Fund. The new GPA is being named in honor of Gideon Moody, a U.S. Senator from South Dakota in the late 1800s and namesake of Moody County.

"This is a beautiful property with excellent upland habitat for pheasants and deer, along with some temporary and seasonal wetlands for waterfowl," said Steve Vanderbeek, regional habitat manager for South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks.

The new Gideon GPA is 10 miles south of Brookings and within 50 miles of Sioux Falls.
