BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's main pheasant hunting season doesn't open for another week, but some young hunters will be in the field this weekend.
The two-day youth pheasant hunting season is Saturday and Sunday. The state Game and Fish Department says legally licensed residents and nonresidents age 15 and younger can hunt statewide.
The regular pheasant season opens next Saturday and runs through Jan. 6. Game and Fish estimates there are about 59 percent more pheasants this year than last in North Dakota.
