North Dakota hunters should expect to see fewer upland game birds this hunting season, according to Aaron Robinson, State Game and Fish Department upland game management biologist. The season for sharp-tailed grouse, ruffed grouse and Hungarian partridge opens Sept. 10.
“Excessive water has affected reproduction in areas, but there will be some areas good for sharptails,” Robinson said. “But no doubt birds will be harder to find.”
Several national wildlife refuges in North Dakota are open to late-season upland game bird hunting.
Arrowwood, Audubon, Des Lacs, J. Clark Salyer, Lake Alice, Lake Zahl, Long Lake, Lostwood, Tewaukon (pheasants only), and Upper Souris NWRs opened Nov. 24.
Federal officials are again seeking the latest in scientific data and public comment as they revisit whether to extend Endangered Species Act protections to the sage grouse.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service an-nounced the new review Tuesday, two months after a federal judge in Idaho condemned the agency for failing to use the best available science when it decided not to list the bird two years ago.
