"The Patience Game" With Dean Pearson

South Dakota Magazine

In The Moment … November 9, 2020 Show 938 Hour 1

Imagine a young boy tracking a deer on his family's farm in McCook County, trying to get close enough for the perfect shot. And the result of his perfect shot is a photo ... taken with his small and inexpensive Kodak camera!
Years of patience has paid off for Dean Pearson. His targets have remained the same although his equipment has greatly improved.
Dean Pearson writes about "The Patience Game" in the November/December issue of South Dakota Magazine. Dean Pearson has been living it for several years. 
His photos of a red-headed drake in Miner County or a small flock of northern shovelers in Day County jump right off the pages of the new issue of South Dakota Magazine.
