One of the key points in ex- plaining many North Dakota Game and Fish Department numbers is un— derstanding the index is not a cen— sus. Not every pheasant, deer or grouse in the entire state is count— ed. Think of how time-consuming, expensive and impossible this would be. Instead, routes are determined and surveyed each year to compare from past years and historical num- bers to form an index. Is the popu- lation stable compared to last year? Lower than historical numbers or growing over multiple years? This allows biologists, game managers to understand the trends. North Dakota’s roadside sur- veys conducted in late'July and Au— gust indicate pheasants were down from last year, while sharp-tailed grouse and gray partridge numbers were about the same. Jesse Kolar, Game and Fish De- partment upland game supervisor, said results of the annual upland late summer counts were expected. “Recent weather patterns have shifled toward a drier period, par— ticularly this year with a warm, open winter and exceptional drought across much of the state,” he said. “Hunters. should expect to find similar numbers to 2020, with the exception that there will be fewer acres of typical grassland cover to walk.” Total pheasants (45) observed per i 100 miles are down 23% from last year and broods (5) per 100 miles are down 30%. The average brood size (six). remained unchanged. The final summary is based on 266 survey runs made along 102 brood routes across North Dakota. Observers in the northwest counted eight broods and 68 pheas- ants per 100 miles, down from 10 broods and 80 pheasants in 2020. Average brood size was six. Results from the southeast showed three broods and 24 pheas- ants per 100 miles, down from five broods and 42 pheasants in SCAIS .\ur‘.ll ItlLoIi 5 Your classified ad will appear in all North Dakota daily and weekly newspapers for only Call your? newspaper 1 -865-685-3889 , for details 2020. Average brood size was four. Statistics from southwestern North Dakota indicated six broods and 59 pheasants per 100 miles, down from seven broods and 65 pheasants in 2020. Average brood size was seven chicks. The northeast district, generally containing secondary pheasant habi- tat with lower pheasant numbers compared to the rest of the state, showed three broods and 24 pheas- ants per 100 miles, compared to three broods and 22 pheasants last year. Average brood size was five. Kolar said sharptail hunters should expect to find mainly adult grouse this fall. He said numbers along the Missouri River are still high compared to long-term aver- ages, so hunters who can find cov- er should have average to good hunting. The eastern part of the state has fewer sharp—tailed grouse, with isolated hot spots. “Many rangelands that hold grouse on an average year will be too open to hunt this fall, and most grouse will likely be found in shrubland and woodland draws and/or near riparian areas,” he added. . . ; Sharptails observed per 100 miles are up 2% statewide. Brood survey results show observers recorded two sharptail broods and 19 sharptails per 100 miles. Aver- age brood size was six. Although partridge numbers have shown a slight increase, Ko- lar said most of the partridge harvest is incidental while hunters pursue grouse or pheasants. Partridge den- sities in general, he said, are too low to target.- Partlidge observed per 100 miles are up 9%. Observers recorded one partridge brood and 10 partridge per 100 miles. Average brood size was 10. The grouse and partridge seasons opened Sept. 11 and continues through Jan. 2, 2022.

The state Game and Fish Department is allowing hunters with white- tail or “any” deer gun licenses in several units in western North Dakota the option of turning those licenses in for refunds. v Casey Anderson, wildlife chief, said the deci- sion is based on continuing reports of white-tailed deer mortality caused by epizootic hemorrhagic disease, and evidence of moderate to si gnificant deer losses in some areas that might affect hunt- .ing success in those locations. The first confirmed EHD report occurred in early August. Hunters with antlered whitetail, antlerless whitetail, any antlered and any antlerless licens- es are eligible for refirnds in units 2H, 21, 2] 1, 2K1, 3A1, 3A3, 3B1, 3B2, 3B3, 3C, 3D1, 3D2, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, 4E and 4F. Hunters who return their licenses will have their bonus ,1 fem Greta VVhelan NDSU Master'Gardener Rustic farmhouse favorite of points prior to the 2021 deer gun lottery. ' “Compared to previous years, a much larger portion of the state seems to be atfected,”Anderson said. ‘Unfortunately, substantial mortality has been documented in some areas.” Game and Fish made license refunds an option for hunters in 2020 because of an EHD outbreak in limited units. Department staff will continue to monitor re- ports to determine if licenses in additional units should become eligible for refunds due to the EHD outbreak. Hunters and landowners should report any dead deer along with photos, if possible, to the department through the online wildlife mortality reporting system, at gfindgov/mortality—report. Before deciding to turn in a license, Anderson urges license holders to make local contacts to find out the extent of mortality in their hunting unit. “Consistent with previous EHD outbreaks the W cup broccoli 3 cups diced red or gold pctatoes impact can at times be severe in localized areas, while other areas within the unit have little to no impact and a good deer harvest may still be need- ed,” he said. License holders who qualify and want a refiind must mail their tag, along with a note requesting a refimd due to EHD, to the Game and Fish De- partrnent’s Bismarck office no later than Nov. 4. Envelopes postmarked Nov. 4 will be accepted. EHD, avnaturally occuning virus that is spread by a biting midge, is often fatal to infected white— tailed deer, while mule deer do not usually die firm the disease. Hunters do not have to worry about handling or consuming meat from infected deer because the virus that causes EHD is not known to cause disease in humans. In addition, the first series of hard frosts typically kills the midge that transmits the EHD virus and will slow or halt the spread of the disease. cooker.
