Going insane in ND!!!

Postby goosebite » Wed Jul 16, 2008 10:09 pm

I moved up here in May and so far this is awesome!!! I've seen pheasants in the middle of Bismarck and every time I go target shooting I hear them all around me, it's a good torture:) I can only imagine what duck season will be like. I got a feeling moving up here is going to be one of the best ideas I've ever had.

Thanks, I just started doing some volunteer work for the ND game and fish to help pass some time. We will be holding a youth shoot in August and have a youth pheasant hunt before season in September, while helping teach hunter safety of course. What are some other fun activities I could do in ND to pass time till hunting season?

Off the topic, I've started running the dog lately and have been seeing a bird that is not in Iowa. It seems to be a covey bird as i have never seen a single, groups of 2-8 birds. About half the size of a pheasant if not less. Flies slower than a pheasant and almost always has it's legs hanging when it flushes. I haven't had enough chance to see any color distinction. I have been finding them in lower grass (knee high) and it holds pretty tight. Does anyone know what kind of bird this might be?

Sounds like a Hungarian partridge. Probably the best eating bird in ND, hands down.

There is a Delta Waterfowl event in Bismarck on Aug. 14th: http://www.deltawaterfowl.org/chapters/ ... _index.php I'm a Canvasback Sponsor, never miss.

See you there.

Are you close to water? They could be rails.
