Pheasant numbers in North Dakota look to be similar to last year, when hunters shot less than 310,000 roosters, the lowest total since 2000. Habitat loss and declining acreage in the federal Conservation Reserve Program have reduced pheasant numbers and hunter success since the CRP peak in the mid-2000s.
