Help survey pheasants, partridges
News from Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Natural Resources Department
Hunting for pheasants on the Flathead Indian Reservation is a regular highly-anticipated activity for many people and has been so for decades. The habitat on the reservation, especially in the Mission Valley, provides an excellent outdoor experience.
In recent years though, pheasant numbers have been declining. Tribal and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wildlife managers are soliciting the public’s thoughts and suggestions as to how to deal with the decline in pheasant numbers.
Wildlife managers will use a survey to reach out to the public and assist them in planning management options for pheasants. Hunters, bird watchers and other interested individuals are urged to provide their input by completing a pheasant hunter survey. The survey can be accessed on the tribes’ website at www.cskt.org or by contacting the Tribal Wildlife Management Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please provide comments and suggestions by Jan.15, 2015. Your participation is appreciated.
