Pheasant count close to last year (09/13/2006)
Minnesota's pheasant index remains at its highest level in 20 years, thanks to favorable habitat and nesting conditions in southern and western portions of the state, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced today.

The state's pheasant index (113 birds per 100 miles of survey driven) is 75 percent above the ten-year average and similar to 2005 when hunters harvested nearly 600,000 roosters, the most since 1964, according to results of the annual August roadside survey of farmland wildlife.

The best opportunities for harvesting pheasants will likely be in the southwest, where observers reported 242 birds per 100 miles of survey driven. Good harvest opportunities might also be found in the central and west central regions, where observers reported 113 birds per 100 miles driven.

The 2006 August Roadside Report and pheasant-hunting-prospects map can be viewed and downloaded from http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/hunting/pheasant/index.html.
