2009 Small Game and Furbearer Regulations Set

North Dakota’s 2009 small game and furbearer regulations have been set and season structures and bag limits are similar to last year.

The mountain lion season opens Sept. 4 and continues through March 31, 2010. The season will remain the same as last year, with a quota of eight lions in Zone 1.

Only North Dakota residents are permitted to hunt waterfowl from Sept. 26 – Oct. 2. Nonresidents will be allowed to hunt waterfowl in North Dakota beginning Oct. 3. Other waterfowl season details will be finalized in mid-August in the waterfowl amendment to the small game and furbearer proclamation.

In accordance with state law, nonresidents are not allowed to hunt on Game and Fish Department wildlife management areas or conservation PLOTS (Private Land Open To Sportsmen) areas from Oct. 10-16.

Hunters should refer to the North Dakota 2009-10 Small Game and Furbearer guides (available mid-August) for more details on small game and furbearer seasons. Waterfowl regulations will be available in late August.

Interesting.....the pheasant brood count must have been pretty good since they did not lower the limits.

I believe hens take the brunt of the bad conditions (winter) more than the roosters. That's what I've read anyway.
