Droughts are good for pheasants. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the pheasant numbers.

So how did you do? My Dad and Grandpa our heading out my way tomorrow to stay for a couple days for some good ol rooster hunting.

They are everywhere in the SW portion of the state. Can't wait, it should be a real "blast".

Numbers are strong south of I-94. SE looks good as does the SW. Once you get north of there you can find birds, but they are usually in pockets.

I would contact ND Game and Fish and get a PLOTS guide. It is map showing all the public land.

If you can't ski with the big dogs, stay on the dock.

I'm glad you were able to hunt what possibly might be one of the last-best pheasant years. With CRP being tilled last fall (and more this spring) the next couple years are looking like we're going to see a significant decrease in numbers.

Matt: I hear what you are saying. I am trying to stay as possitive as I can about the situation. I do think the CRP loss is going to have a pretty significant impact on ND pheasant hunting. Just trying to figure out how much is going to be the tricky question.
