BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department is asking grouse hunters to help with future bird management by sending in wing envelopes this fall.

Instructions for submitting wing feathers are printed on envelopes that are available from Game and Fish and the agency’s district offices.

Wing data allows biologists to monitor production, reconcile bird counts and get a better understanding of the harvest ratio of males to females, and juveniles to adults. Upland game biologist Aaron Robinson says, “the more we have, the better the data.”

The grouse season opens Sept. 12.
