Pheasant numbers down for this fall's hunt
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota hunters can expect a drop in pheasant numbers this fall.
The Department of Natural Resources says a harsh winter followed by a wet spring has led to a big decline in the state's pheasant counts.
Pheasant hunters are expected to harvest about 250,000 roosters this fall. That would be the lowest harvest since 1997.
