North Dakota pheasant hunting season opens
Grand Forks North Dakota 375 2nd Ave. N. 58203

BISMARCK -- North Dakota's regular pheasant hunting season opened today.

State Game and Fish Department roadside surveys and brood surveys indicate that it might not be a good year for hunters, with the pheasant population down by about one-third. State officials have said hunters could bag fewer than half a million roosters for the first time in a decade.
