Some ND refuges to open to bird hunting

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP)  The North Dakota Game and Fish Department
is reminding outdoors enthusiasts that some national wildlife
refuges in North Dakota open to late-season upland game bird
hunting the day after the deer gun season closes.

The deer season ends on Sunday. The Arrowwood, Audubon, Des
Lacs, J. Clark Salyer, Lake Alice, Lake Zahl, Long Lake, Lostwood,
Tewaukon and Upper Souris refuges open the next day. The hunting at
Tewaukon is pheasants only.

Portions of each refuge will remain closed to hunting. Hunters
should contact refuge headquarters for maps designating the closed
areas and other restrictions. Hunters also are reminded that use of
nontoxic shot is required on all U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Seasons for pheasant, sharp-tailed grouse, Hungarian partridge
and ruffed grouse close statewide on Jan. 2.
