Minnesota wildlife officials dread the toll spring rains took on pheasants

Scott Roemhildt, a Minnesota DNR southern region director and a devout pheasant hunter, said his drives this June to monitor pheasants and new broods as hens bring their chicks to gravel roads in the early mornings “were unlike any I had never experienced in my decades of doing this.” (File photo by Eric Morken)

Scott Roemhildt has a June tradition of pheasant-watching as he drives to work. Cup of coffee in hand, he takes the “long way” to the office as he drives slowly on gravel roads in his native southern Minnesota.
“It’s something I’ve done for years, watching for pheasants in June, slowly driving the backroads,” said Roemhildt, Minnesota DNR southern region director and a devout pheasant hunter. “The hour after sunrise is a great time to see new broods as hens bring their chicks to gravel roads in the morning to warm up and dry off.”
