The squad shot four-under par on Sunday. ' A.J . Hensel, Verlin Allery and Steve Swanson were in third place after day one and steady play Sunday kept them in the top 10, but the squad slipped to fifth place overall. ‘ Finishingsixth overall were Kent Weston, Spencer Skavhaug and Jason Nordmark. The team scored the second-most points on day two, powered by Skavhaug’s eagle 'on hole eight, which led to a 12-point hole for theteam, the highest of any on the final day. The squad needed all those points and more to rise up the board after a day-one effort that left 1 them in 18th place. Taking seventh was Tony Bem— hardt, Terry Haberstroh and Kurt Disher. The squad rocketed up the board 17 spots from Saturday’s finish. Eighth place overall went to Cory Davis, Brian Palmer and Kurt Car— penter. The team slipped threespots from day one, but piled up 27 points in a four-hole stretch to stay in the top 10. Ninth place overall went to Tony Spring pheasant count similar to last year North Dakota’s spring pheasant population index is about the same as last year, acCording to the state Game and Fish Department’s 2021 spring crowing count survey. R.J . Gross, upland game manage— ment ‘biologist, said the number of roosters heard crowing this spring was up about 3% statewide. “The statewide number might be a bit misleading since we are notably down in the southwest, while most of the state benefitted from good repro- duction in 2020 and a mild winter,” Gross said. The primary regions holding pheasants showe’d 18.4 crows per stop in the southwest, down from 19.6 in 2020; 14.3 crows per stop in the northwest, up from 12.2; and 14.5 crows per stop in the southeast, up ‘from 13.6. The count in the northeast, which is not a primary region for pheasants, was 5.2 crows per stop, up from 3.4 last year. I Gross said current drought condi— tions are causing delayed growth in nesting cover, brood rearing cover and c'rop'lands acioss the state, while extended drought conditions could prevent insect hatches, reducing for- age availability to chicks for brood rearing. ' x ‘ “Weare hopeful that the latest rain events will foster insect production to bolster pheasant chick foraging,” he said. I Pheasant crowing counts are con- ducted each spring throughout North Dakota. Observers drive specified 20-mile routes, stopping at predeter— mined intervals, and counting the number of pheasant roosters heard . crowing over a 2—minute period. The number of pheasant croWs heard ‘ are compared to previous years’ data, providing a trend sum- mary.
