Bird-hunting opportunities remain in North Dakota

BISMARCK — North Dakota's statewide duck and white-fronted goose hunting seasons closed Sunday, but bird-hunting opportunities remain in the state.

The Game and Fish Department says duck hunting in the High Plains Unit reopens Saturday and continues through Dec. 30. The unit is basically northwestern North Dakota and all areas south and west of the Missouri River.

The season for Canada geese closes Dec. 20, except in the Missouri River Zone, where it ends Dec. 28. The Missouri River Zone encompasses areas along the river south of Garrison Dam.

Light goose hunting closes statewide Dec. 30.

Sharp-tailed and ruffed grouse, partridge and pheasant hunting seasons continue through Jan. 6. The fall turkey season closes Jan. 13.
