Winter roundup: weather most likely to impact pheasant, grouse
It's too early to tell exactly what impact this winter's weather will have on all Minnesota game animals, but Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wildlife biologists suspect that pheasants and grouse likely will be the species most affected.
At least 18 inches of snow cover the ground throughout Minnesota's pheasant range. A number of birds have and will fall victim to the deep snow that covers fields and fills ditches throughout much of southern Minnesota.
