ND pheasant hunters, success rate drop in 2013

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) --The number of pheasant hunters declined in North Dakota last year, along with the number of birds they shot.

The Game and Fish Department says there were about 76,000 pheasant hunters last year, a drop of 11 percent from 2012. They killed 447,000 roosters, down 27 percent over the year. Birds bagged per hunter dropped from 7.2 to 5.8.

The annual pheasant season statistics are determined by a mail survey of resident and nonresident hunters.

This year's spring pheasant crowing count survey indicated a 6 percent rise in North Dakota's pheasant population. A late-summer brood survey will give a better indication of pheasant production.
