Wildlife officials expect good pheasant year

North Dakota wildlife officials are anticipating a good production year for pheasants but have concerns about the population of the upland game bird long term.

Officials heard 10 percent more crows during the annual spring crowing count survey, and all parts of the state had an increase over the year, according to the state Game and Fish Department. The number of crows heard in the southeast increased by 12 percent, the northwest by 8 percent, the northeast by 6 percent and the southwest by 4 percent.
