While North Dakota produces more ducks than pheasants, I’d guess if you asked every hunter their favorite quarry, ducks might finish behind deer and pheasants — though a lot of people are avid participants in all three seasons.
Hunters are taking to the fields in North Dakota as pheasant season begins.
The season that opened Saturday runs through Jan. 6. Pheasants are big business in North Dakota — tens of thousands of hunters kill at least half a million birds in a typical season.
Thanks to a mild winter and early spring, pheasant numbers have rebounded across North Dakota and neighboring states
Pheasant hunters have plenty of reasons to be optimistic this fall in North Dakota, where summer roadside surveys showed a 59 percent increase from 2011, according to the North Dakota Game and Fish Department.
Based on the survey results, pheasant hunters in Minnesota are expected to harvest about 290,000 roosters this fall. That’s up from last year’s estimated harvest of 204,000 but still only about half of the average for 2005-2008, when pheasant production and hunting were unusually good in Minnesota.
Results of the survey show that pheasant numbers grew in many areas of South Dakota, due in large part to a mild winter and ideal weather during the nesting and brood-rearing season. The pheasants-per-mile index for 2012 is 4.21, up 18 percent from the 3.57 index of 2011.
The state Game and Fish Department says hunters harvested almost 24 percent more pheasants in North Dakota last year than in 2010. Biologist Aaron Robinson says last fall's pheasant harvest was 683,000, up from 552,000 in 2010.
