THE FLENSBURGER FILES Happy Children’s Day

These are good times for perch anglers on Devils Lake if results from recent Game and Fish Department population surveys are any indication. There’s a lot of young perch coming down the pike — providing they can get past the pike, walleyes and any other hungry mouths that might want to gobble them up.
As goes the habitat, so go the pheasants. Following the trend in neighboring states, pheasant numbers in North Dakota are down statewide from last year, the Game and Fish Department reported this week.
In a year of fewer deer, grouse and pheasants, waterfowl look to be the bright spot on the horizon for North Dakota hunters this fall. The state’s waterfowl season opens Saturday for residents and Sept. 28 for out-of-state hunters.
It is no secret that the Bakken region of North Dakota is a hotbed of real estate development activity. But communities throughout the Dakotas and western Minnesota are experiencing their own building booms, thanks to a variety of reasons including prosperous agriculture economies and growing populations.
Minnesota’s bear hunting season opens today, and fewer hunters will be in the woods this fall. In an effort to gradually increase the state’s bear population, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has reduced the number of bear licenses in quota zones by about 35 percent this fall.
My first lesson on reporting in the Oil Patch: Be sure to eat before going to a city or county meeting. Meetings in the rapidly growing communities can last late into the evening, and often those leaders are back in the same room for committee meetings the following morning.
Richard Rathge said last week that he’s leaving his job at NDSU and moving to Minnesota. Maybe he couldn’t stand the good news — news that North Dakota’s population is larger than it has ever been before.
A new study estimates that Williston's population has doubled since the 2010 census and that the number of people living in the city at the heart of North Dakota's booming oil patch will continue to grow at a fast rate.
Population growth immediately following a natural disaster isn't typical. So Minot's growth following the 2011 Souris River flood is not only atypical, but local officials suspect the growth rate has been faster than the 1.8 percent increase estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau.
